    so im in NC this week for work; and was debating taking a ride over to Harrahs Cherokee on Saturday...
    What’s it like?
    I see it has $1 bubble craps
    Does it have $5 or $10 regular craps?
    I know it has UTH, but would it be $5 on a weekend?
    Thanks in advance!

    UTH will be $10 most other table games $15 or more during peak hours....lots of tables though.....if you play slots only play in high limit or 50c Progressive DDBP otherwise money will be gone. Decent poker room as well

    I like the vibe of the place. Cant say I've ever had any luck there. If nearby like your position its worth checking out. I wouldnt travel too far to get there unless there were no other options. If we go to Gatlinburg we usually make the trip over the mountain for a bit to play a little.

    We won our state tennis tournament and sectionals are in Asheville NC in September so we are going to spend at least one night there. I heard it’s very nice. Probably one of the reasons Tunica is struggling since it’s closer to Atlanta than Tunica.

    Many good things. Beaurifull area, hotel, food, staff very good. Gambling typically bad except at high limits

    I never met many Atlanta folks in Tunica even back in the days when it was packed. Always seemed like the bulk of Tunica players were from TN, AR, and AL. Still, the proliferation of other regional casinos in the past ten years has definitely put a cumulative dent in the north MS market

    Sad to hear that..I’ll probably stick to $1 bubble craps and 50c video poker.
    Maybe $10 craps if it’s going

    It's a five hour drive for me - but since it's the only option in NC, I make the trip about four or five times a year. Earlier posters are on the money for limits...Normally two pits open with BJ, 3-card poker, Let it Ride, Mississippi Stud, etc. Most tables $10, $15 or $25...High Limit tables are usually $50 or $100 or higher. Usually at least two Roulette and two Craps tables open...afternoons and evenings even more. They have a section near the new entertainment center (two-level bowling alley!) that has lower limit tables, but I think the BJ is 6/5. Restaurants include Brio and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse...Food Court is Burgers, Pizza, Dunkin Donuts and Earl of Sandwich. Hope your trip is successful

    I was looking for an older post on Cherokee - maybe it slipped down a few pages - anyways - we go there often. We enjoy it there. Brios's is an excellent place to eat. You have to pay for drinks everywhere while playing, but not expensive. Rather large place for a stand alone casino. Lots of tables, slots and good size poker room. Rooms are hard to get on weekends depending on play. Has the most, or close to most 7-stars members nationwide.

    I didn't stay there. But, we saw Larry the Cable Guy there, ate at the buffet. I liked it. Cherokee is beautiful.

    Slots are tight compared to vegas or bolxi and they charge for drinks (cherokee law) poker is amazing thier super soft play. And the casino is always lively on Saturday nights. Eat at noodles after drinking at 2am

    Forgot about Noodles... after maybe 20 visits - I was there alone lately and on a new diet and went to noodles. Good choice for late night. (I miss my Johnny Rockets late night burger and carrot cake)

    They even charge for soda?
    I'm driving there/back in the same day so no drinking for me. (6 hours of driving in one day is hard enough!)

    We have a vacation home in Waynesville NC, just outside of Asheville. We visit Cherokee/Harrahs every October and we throughly enjoy our time there....we don't win, but we enjoy it. Have fun if you go.
     
    Once again...downtown
    Our happy place.

    No. Sodas and water are free (except for tip). They have several walk up drink stations where you can be served that aren’t actual bars. The casino itself is very large and the cocktail service has always been good IMO.

    Honestly, the smoky mountain setting and facilities can’t be beat. The slot hold and lack of free drinks can be beat.. But we always enjoy the overall ambiance in Cherokee.

    That's the one nice thing about Missouri/Illinois/Indiana too. Self service soda stations. I'd rather have free alcohol, but I don't make the law.

    Good luck today if you go @TIMSPEED!

    Years ago, Cherokee actually had self service soda stations. That’s was pretty sweet (literally) before I quit the mountain dews. They are all “manned” stations now.... you can get sodas and such for free and and pay for alcohol drinks. Plus tip of course.

    And the waitress said sodas were $1 each (luckily they had dr. Pepper)
