Re: Harrah's Cherokee (Cherokee, NC)

Ruth Chris steakhouse is suppose to open in mid 2012.

Wish they also upgrade the food court food as well. The pizza is borderline disgusting.

I doubt they will update the food court, even though it is sad.

Ruth's Chris should be awesome, but it will obviously be very expensive and not an option to eat at more than once a month or celebrating something special imo. I've heard that it will be privately run, so atleast that is good news.

I don't understand why ppl so happy about live dealers? Do u actually like getting Half the hands AND tipping dealers? You are basically happy to be making less money. Electronic tables are the only reason to even go to cherokee. If they get live dealers il hit Florida where at least there won't b 1000 nits

Re: Harrah's Cherokee (Cherokee, NC)

I know this is a little off topic but i am just starting to get into video poker and was wondering if there are any video poker machines in cherokee with good payouts. If so where are they located in the casino. Someone was telling me the pot of gold machine and shamrock 7's machines are good. I like to play jacks or better mostly.

I'd like to know this too. I was looking around over the weekend and mostly saw Double Double Bonus machines with bad pay tables. I didn't see any JOB machines, but my search wasn't very thorough.

They want to feel the cards and chips, makes it easier to soul read people.

They used to have JOB 25cent on a multigame machine that was an 8/5 payout. (That puts it at 97% payout). That's probably the best slot machine return in the casino. You can find those odds on a few JOB machine, but now the lowest you will find that is on the $1 machines.

Do not play JOB on the other multi-game machines for 25 or 50 cents. They are 6/5 payouts. For example, you can find these at the bars. That puts them around 95% payout.

From what I've seen, the shamrock 7's and pot of gold machines have terrible payouts. Do not play the video BJ on the pot o gold machines. They have terrible rules and payouts.

If you want to find the lowest house edge, it's going to be in the pit at the Baccarat tables. If you bet Banker, I think it's around a 99% return per dollar.

I could be wrong, as I don't play a lot of slots, but I did do some research on the payouts when I needed to get some fast points for Diamond.

Very few regs would prefer to have live dealers from a perspective of direct impact to games.

However, there is a good chance that live cards will bring in more fish, especially those that play big in the pit.

2/5 rarely runs in Cherokee, with one of the main reasons being that players that want to play higher stakes don't want to play on electronic tables.


The word on the street is that they will keep the PokerPro tables for 1/2 and tournaments and have live dealers for 2/5 and other big games.

I haven't been in 3 months, but all the "good" video poker was between the cage near the poker room and the sports bar.

There was a bank of 6 with $1/$2/$5 denominations. They had 99%+ JOB, NSUD, DB, BPDlx, and a few others, but only at the $5 level. DDB is 98.98%.

I must have missed those...but I don't want to play that high anyway. I just wanted to play through a couple bills and see if I got more offers and room comps. I've only played poker on my trips there so far.

I think they have progressives on DDB, but if they do, they're small ones. Like 20k on $5 machines.

Whenever they open the new section up, you will be able to find the 25cent 8/5 payout JOB machines that I used to play. They used to be right in front of the entrance to the old buffet if you know where that used to be.

I'll check next time I'm there, but I'm pretty sure they don't have ANY 99%+ payout machines on any games, including the $25+ machines. Pretty sure all the JOB machines I looked at are all 8/5.

I also don't think they have DDB that is 98.98%. Even at the highest limits.

You receive comps based on your ADT.

Quote:
What is ADT? - ADT is "Average Daily Theoretical Loss" and it is probably the most important factor that Harrah's uses when awarding perks to players.


How is ADT determined? - Harrah's assigns an arbitrary, proprietary Theo percentage to each individual machine, which is multiplied by coin-in to determine the "Harrah's Theo" in dollars. Divide this figure by the number of days played and you get the ADT.
Basically, the more you play over a short amount of days means that your ADT will increase. To get free weeknight rooms in Cherokee, you do not need to have a very high ADT. To get free weekend rooms, you will need to have an ADT >$100. Comped rooms are also based on how busy the hotel is for that night. So basically if you have a low ADT, you will have a better chance at getting a free room on a Wednesday night than on a Saturday night.
