Harrah's Entertainment is one of the top names in entertainment.

Their properties here include Harrah's Lake TahoeHotel and Casino, Harveys Lake Tahoeand Harrah's Renowhich features over 900 slots, the full gamut of Table Games, Poker tournaments including quarterly WSOP qualifiers, a Racebook and full service Sportsbook, and of course Keno. I know a guy who gets the Royal Treatment at Harrah's Tahoe.
They'll fly him out there any time he says he's ready (the whole family too!) He gets limo service, free snowmobiles in the winter, chartered boats for fishing when the weather is right, concierge service fit for a sheik and they even comp his suite rooms, drinks, and meals like 4-Queens used to do for me back when I was a roller. Read on.....
I mention 4-Queensbecause they were the first Vegas Casino that knew how to treat me, and they were the first casino I trusted with a 'rewards card'. My host told me to let him know where I would be playing and he'd 'look after me'. So I gave the pit boss my number and he told the dealer to track my play. I couldn't stop winning, and losing, and winning, and losing... Two weeks later I get a phone call from a nice lady offering me, more or less, the key to the city. That's pretty much how Harrah's works their Total Rewardsplayer loyalty program now. Just track your play at any Harrahs property and you will reap the rewards.
The hotel at Harrah's Lake Tahoe is an impressive 18-story building with very nice guest rooms and suites, great restaurants, a luxurious spa and awesome pool. Of course the casino is world class too! There's top name entertainment in the South Shore Roomjust as there has been for 50 years, as well as great free entertainment at the Casino Center Stage.

$12,000 Jackpot Win!: Here's a pic that Claire Voyant (one of the GamblingGurus writers) shared with us from one of her past trips to Harrah's Lake Tahoe where she had a nice little win one night while betting $10 bucks on the Double Red, White & Blue Slot Machine. She said: "The Red7 rolled up with the Two Double Wild Symbols and I just about fainted!" She also added that, this machine was one of her favorite 3-Reel Slot Machines too! We guess so Claire, nice win!
