Harrah’s New Orleans is going through a transition into Caesars New Orleans as seen by the recent addition of two new venues to the complex. A new Caesars Sportsbook and a World Series of Poker Room will open side-by-side in Harrah’s later in Fall this year.

“Caesars Sportsbook at Harrah’s New Orleans will be the foremost sports betting and viewing destination in the southern United States,” said Dan Real, Caesars Entertainment Regional President.

The new Caesars Sportsbook will occupy a 5,700-square-foot area with four betting windows and 12 self-service betting kiosks. It will have a 140-seater room with a 147-foot video screen and a high-powered audio system for sports fans to root for their teams. The sportsbook will have a private Fan Cave room with multi-display for 10 fans. Patrons can also take a break from the main venue at the new giant bar fit for 28 people.

“This first-class sportsbook will offer an unmatched game-day experience for Louisiana’s passionate sports fans and our many visitors to the area. At Caesars, we recognize how important sports, entertainment, and hospitality are to Louisiana, and this sportsbook will showcase our continued commitment to the state and its people,” Real said.

The new World Series of Poker room will be the largest poker room in the state of Louisiana. The 5,000-square-foot will be filled with 20 poker tables and tableside beverages. The room will host live poker open for casual as well as pro players.

“The World Series of Poker brand represents the ultimate poker experience and it’s only fitting we open a poker room that matches its legacy,” said Samir Mowad, Harrah’s New Orleans General Manager.

The poker room will open every day but at different times. It opens from Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m. and from Friday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. The room will have weekly tournaments every Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday.

“We’ll accomplish this by providing a best-in-class place for players to enjoy our games while generating a competitive buzz that builds camaraderie and creates a thrilling sense of victory for our winners,” Mowad said.
