The Bear Growls: Harrah’s turns decent casinos into grind joints
December 9, 2005
It is no secret that Harrah’s is despised by most skilled players. Harrah’s business plan of offering poor games and not tolerating reasonable levels of action turns off many higher-stakes players, skilled and non-skilled alike. Harrah’s has turned many a good casino into a worthless grind joint. Harrah’s recently eliminated double after split on its formerly marginally-playable double deck blackjack games at Bally’s/Paris. Harrah’s sportsbook managers have begun large-scale ejections of intelligent sports bettors. Other changes at the casinos it recently acquired are all for the worse. Of all the casino industry folks that deserve to be growled at, Harrah’s is the worst.
