LAKE CHARLES, La. -- The former Players Lake Charles Casino here
reopened as Harrah's Lake Charles.
The property, located in the southwest part of the state a
two-hour drive from Houston, changed hands in March when Harrah's
completed its acquisition of Players International Inc. for $425
The property's newly refurbished, 60,000-square-foot Star Casino
offers 900 new slot machines, which brings the casino's total to
more than 1,500 slot machines; a new boarding area; a new themed
table games area known as the Celebrity Room, and Cafe Bong Sen, a
new Asian restaurant.
Like Harrah's 20 other U.S. casinos, the Lake Charles facility
also features Harrah's Total Rewards, the player loyalty program
that offers cash, comps and tiered status on a national basis.
