Harrah Casino Launches Poolside Blackjack 08.01.2012

Blackjack News

Harrah Casino in Atlantic City has welcomed the New Year with a new addition to its extensive casino games selection. The casino now offers players 6 new blackjack tables that are not located on the casino floor.

As we reported back in early November the new blackjack tables are available at the Harrah indoor pool. They are located poolside so players can enjoy a few hands of their favorite type of blackjack in between swimming, relaxing or watching their kids play in the water.

The pool area at Harrah has seen much excitement over the years. It offers water polo games, huge water floats for anyone wishing to be lazy in the water, and every weekend the entire area is transformed into the best nightclub in whole of Atlantic City. Now the indoor pool area also doubles as a blackjack casino where playing blackjack in your swimsuit is welcomed and encouraged.

The big celebration launch of the new tables happened on Saturday 7th January when P. Diddy officially opened the new gambling area at the pool by playing a few hands himself.

Harrah is not the first casino to expand its gambling areas into areas of the resort which traditionally were not used for gambling. The Tropicana did so last year by adding 8 slot machines and two table games to an area in the resort that was previously designated only for dining and nightlife.

Caesars Entertainment, which owns Harrah and several other casinos in Atlantic City, has learned from the Tropicana and decided to also create an atmosphere that combines gambling and other fun activities together. Eastern division president of entertainment at Caesars Entertainment, Don Marrandino said: “it’s combining casino gambling and the nightclub atmosphere… It’s a fun atmosphere. We’re really pleased with how it’s working out.”
