Perhaps I'm being kind when I tell you that in my opinion, Harrah's Cherokee Casino, NC is perhaps the ultimate dismal excuse for a casino. Why the governor of NC insisted there be no live dealers is beyond me! Perhaps he's related to the governor of Colorado who insisted on a max bet of $5.00 in the Cripple Creek area.
There are no dealers, everything is video...the rules escape me, perhaps the abundance of smoke added to my lack of recollection.
I'd rather aerate my lawn than play at Harrah's Cherokee!!
On the positive side, there is some scenic beauty in the Smokies. I would highly recommend Cade's Cove and perhaps a side hike or two. Unfortunately, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are rife with the ultimate in tacky stuff.
If you want an exciting gaming experience I think you'd be very hard pressed to find it in Cherokee, NC
