Harrah's New Orleans is a casino located in New Orleans, Louisiana near the foot of Canal Street a block away from the Mississippi River. It is a 115,000 ft² casino with approximately 2,100 slot machines, over 90 table games and a poker room. There are several places to eat ranging from buffet style to fine dining. Since its opening in 1999 Harrah's has been renting nearby hotel rooms to accommodate its guests; currently, the newly-renovated 202-room Wyndham Riverfront Hotel is providing such accommodations. In order to avoid leasing rooms, the casino opened its own 27-story hotel tower with 450 rooms across the street from the casino on September 21, 2006 just days ahead of the New Orleans Saints return to the Louisiana Superdome. It is the only land based private casino in the state by Louisiana law (there are other casinos in the state with their gambling facilities on floating boats).

The casino shut down in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 but reopened in the midst of Mardi Gras on February 17, 2006.

The location of the casino was most recently previously the site of the Rivergate Convention Center. A short tunnel built as part of the cancelled Vieux Carré Riverfront Expressway is used for valet parking and for an entrance passing underneath Poydras Street.
