Harrah's Metropolis is a riverboat casino located on the Ohio River in Metropolis, Illinois. It opened in 1994 as Players Island, a joint venture between Players International and show business impresario Merv Griffin as one of the state's first casinos. The property became part of Harrah's Entertainment (later Caesars Entertainment) with its 2000 acquisition of Players International.To visit Harrah's Metropolis and other attractions in Metropolis, use our Metropolis online road trip planner.
In 2014, Harrah's was given permission from the Illinois Gaming Board to move its gaming floor from its riverboat to the property's convention center. Illinois law requires that gambling floors be over water, but does not require that they be located on a navigable river. This was achieved by installing water bladders underneath the building. In October 2017, ownership was transferred to Vici Properties as part of a corporate spin-off, and the property was leased back to Caesars.
Harrah's Metropolis includes a casino with more than 800 slot machines and 25 table games, a hotel with 258 rooms, a showroom, and five restaurants.

Harrah's Metropolis reviews
At 1st I was liking the casino but then I started playing the slots and they were so tight, I could barely get any payouts. The hotel room was fantastic. The restaurants suck. Don't waste your money..... more »
Hotel was nice. Slots were not as nice to us. But a good one night stay. Bonus that it’s smoke tree casino & very friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Didn’t try the restaurant on property. Overall good.... more »
