Harrah’s New Orleans Unveils New Caesars Sportsbook, Poker Room

Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel and Casino recently opened a brand new Caesars Sportsbook and World Series of Poker-branded poker room. The ribbon-cutting announcement was attended by Cooper Manning, Archie Manning, and former New Orleans Saints player and Pro Football Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson. 

Both amenities span more than 5,000 square feet and are located next to one another on the casino’s main floor.

Here’s what visitors to Harrah’s New Orleans can expect to find.

Caesars Sportsbook at Harrah’s New Orleans

One of two retail sportsbooks in the Big Easy, the brand-new Caesars Sportsbook features a 5,700-square-foot space. Prior to the renovations, patrons at the Caesars Sportsbook at Harrah’s New Orleans were only able to place bets at betting kiosks. Now, there are four full-service betting windows in addition to 12 kiosks. 

You can catch all of the action on a 147-foot video wall from one of 140 seats in the sportsbook. There’s also a huge bar with room for 28 people to sit.

Want a more private experience? You can reserve a multi-display “Fan Cave” for up to 10 people.

Louisiana’s Largest Poker Room

The 5,000-square-foot, 20-table poker room is the largest in Louisiana. The poker room at Harrah’s New Orleans will feature World Series of Poker branding, as Caesars Entertainment inherited the world-famous poker tournament brand when it acquired Harrah’s in 2020. 

Both the sportsbook and poker room were part of larger renovations totaling $325 million that were agreed upon when the Louisiana Legislator extended Caesar’s operating license.
