The Harrah’s Philadelphia poker room is based within a multi-purpose entertainment complex that includes a luxury casino and racetrack. The poker offering is located near to the main racebook, with the main entrance opposite this level’s snack bar. Given the proximity of the room to the site’s other gambling attractions, the familiar sounds of slot reels and jangling coins fill the air as you play. The Harrah’s Philadelphia poker room regularly spreads around 35 tables of action to a diverse gambling community. The room is proud of its WSOP branding and offers satellites to all of the major global World Series events.
Harrah’s Philadelphia annually plays host to the Philadelphia Poker Open. Drawing in hot competition from all over Pennsylvania and beyond, this series annually brings in a total of $300,000 in guaranteed poker tournaments. The masthead of these events is the $100,000-guaranteed main event. A $500 buy-in gains players entry into an event with a highly generous structure. As the blinds slowly rise, the levels get longer — with the intense stages of the game allowed to play out naturally, without insane blind pressure. To coin a phrase often used at the venue, it is “welcome to Harrah-dise” for Philadelphia poker tournament players. If looking for cash-game action, you will not be at all disappointed. No-limit hold’em aficionados are able to play between limits of $1-2 and $10-25 on a regular basis, while the limit gurus can hop in from $2-4 to $20-40. Seven-card stud and pot-limit Omaha are also available.
Harrah’s Philadelphia operates the Total Rewards card comp scheme that is enjoyed by regulars at all Caesars-owned venues in the United States. Earned comps can be banked for use at other Caesars properties, or exchanged right away for tableside food delivery, slot credits, and more. All drinks are complimentary to all players.
