A new Harrah’s casino and resort opened in Murphy, N.C.
The Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation and Caesars Entertainment partnered to build Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel. The resort has 50,000 square feet of gaming space with more than 1,000 slot machines and 70 table games; a food court; and a 300-room, full-service hotel.
Construction of the $110 million complex took nearly two years and created 500 construction jobs. The casino will employ approximately 900 people.
