Harrah's, New Orleans
I'm not a gambler. T is. T likes to gamble and T wins. And T gives me money to gamble. This was "win / win".
Until Day #2 when the Harrah's got their $ back!
It was tons of fun, however.
And open 24 / 7....
Dress Code: Just about anything... tourist through club clothes.
Since gambling is illegal in Louisiana, Harrah's offers gaming instead. It is available 24/7, so it goes on at night too. We considered going there for dinner, but just never got to it.
This is what their website says:
From penny slots to Megbucks, Harrah's New Orleans slots are where the action is. Get your adrenaline rushing at one of over 2,000 hot slots including Turkey Shoot, Phone Tag, Dragons Gold, video poker and so many more!

Harrah's offers state-wide, progressive slot machines in a variety of denominations.
For Gambling in New Orleans, Harrah's is your stop. As far as I know it is the only casino in and around the vicinity of the French Quarter. I believe there are riverboat casinos, but I didn't frequent any. For mainland gambling, you want to visit Harrah's.
Basically Harrah's is your run of the mill casino with all of the bells and whistles, however, every once in a while a New Orleans Jazz Band parade will march through the casino. It is a good time, but for my money, I'd rather be out in the quarter living it up!
Dress Code: Come as you are. Well, wait a minute, in New Orleans that could mean a lot of things. Please be covered and wearing shoes - that should do it.
Personally for me, when entering Harrah's it looked like any other Harrah's casino I've been to. There were Slots (pennies and up), tables, and progressives. What was unique was the indoor Mardi Gras float parades with life-sized floats, a huge oak tree and a Pirate's Ship. The location of the casino is so prime...practically tripping on the riverwalk.
There was the usual buffet food options from The Buffet , and then there were some of the personalized food eateries at The Manor Room, Cajun Cafe, Cafe Buon Giorno, Lucky Dogs, and Kim´s Noodle House.
Lafitte's Treasures - a shop for clothing, collectibles, logo merchandise, and souvenirs.
Oh yeah the place is 24 HRS. (So you don't ever have to go home --- well not unless you lose everything and/or they kick you out) What is interesting to note is that Harrah's does not have hotel accomodations on property, however you can reserve nearby hotels through them.
21 and up can only enter.
Dress Code: Casual wear is acceptable.
The 100,000 square foot casino features 2,506 slots and 106 table games. The property has three restaurants Voted "Best Casino" by the readers of "Casino Player".
Open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
We are not used to such beautifull and big casino's
Dress Code: Like you always dress in a casino, a little bit chique.
