The Harrah’s branch in North Kansas City has a well-designed poker room with more than a dozen tables of action. You just have to step through the door of the casino to find the poker games running adjacent to the upper entrance. In contrast to casinos that place their poker rooms behind the pit games, this location ensures that a good stream of gambling newcomers stumble in to feed the sharks. Harrah’s KC is technically a riverboat casino, meaning that visitors can enjoy calming views out across the water from the higher windows.
One of the main attractions of Harrah’s Kansas City is its status as an official WSOP satellite location. For small amounts, players can outlast large fields to claim seats at the World Series in Las Vegas. Main-event seats are given away throughout the year, plus full-experience packages and tickets to other championship events. The scheduled tournament action is also exceptional, with twice-daily no-limit hold’em tourneys being the backbone of this lively scene. Poker adventurers can also play weekly novelty games — like pineapple — and deep-stack tournaments.
Harrah’s Kansas City deploys the usual Total Rewards Players Card program that you will be familiar with from all Caesars Entertainment venues. Your rewards card can also be set up as a credit card, earning you comps as you spend. The usual benefits are available. Earned comps can be used as payment for Harrah’s KC tableside food and drink service, plus a range of merchandise and resort services. The bad-beat jackpot is distinctive at this venue, due to the fact that 17 independent progressive jackpots run for each of the qualifying hands in the promotion. If you lose with four jacks or better in a cash game, you are guaranteed to score a juicy payday!
