This casino has one of the most friendliest staff in the state, however, friendly can't beat losing your money. The slots are the tightest that I have ever played. Table games are worst, but you do get a loud and animated crowd.

Hi, Lorraine - thank you for your kind words about our staff. The next time you're here, you can stop by the Cashier Cage/Total Rewards and they can give you our Top 40 list and hopefully that will bring some luck your way!

I have gone to Harrah's off and on for over 12 years. 90% of the time I have a negative experience. The dealers are rude, unfriendly, and generally unhelpful. There's other casinos in the area and even Ameristar is better than this place.

Council Bluffs, Harrah’s is a very nice facility. Many friends have recommended a visit, they were right it is a lace to visit and enjoy the hotel, excellent food and play. The employees are friendly and try to make everyone welcome.
