his is the first time that Harrah’s Cherokee has offered live automated poker at the property. "Installing PokerPro at Harrah’s Cherokee is a great thing for the poker players of the South," said Chris Halligan, PokerTek’s CEO.
"This will be the only live automated Texas Hold’em offered within almost 350 miles, and we’re confident that players in the region will appreciate the benefits of automated poker. At last, the good people of Asheville, Charlotte, Atlanta and Knoxville have a room they can call their own," Halligan added.
"The games are very popular in other markets, and we’re confident our customers will be pleased also," said Ron Hager, Director of Table Games for Harrah’s Cherokee Casino. "Players will find Texas Hold’em, Seven Card Stud and Omaha cash games and tournaments, with a wide variety of limits and buy-ins."
The Poker Room at Harrah’s Cherokee expects to offer us$ 1/2 No-Limit, us$ 2/5 No-Limit and us$ 3/6 Limit Cash games. For tournament players, us$ 115 sit-n-go’s and a variety of multi-table tournaments are coming soon, pending regulatory approval.
