Press Release

Harrah’s Metropolis Casino and Hotel will be celebrating its 20th anniversary with special promotions and events in February.

Established on Feb. 23, 1993 and opening under the name Player’s Riverboat Casino, the facility has seen various changes, from new floating facilities to a 258-room hotel and entertainment venue, which opened in June 2006.

In honor of 20 years, Harrah’s will be celebrating beginning Sunday afternoon. From 2:20–7:20 p.m., two winners will receive $220 free slot play every 20 minutes. Also, at 8:20 p.m., two winners will receive $2020 in cash

“We owe much of our success to the community and to show appreciation, Harrah’s Metropolis will be donating $1000 to 20 local and national organizations — totaling $20,000,” said Harrah’s Metropolis General Manager Mark Osterhaus. The donations will be presented on Tuesday during a special presentation at an employee event in the River Front Event Center.

As a thank you to its patrons, on Saturday, Feb. 23 a commemorative gift celebrating the official 20-year anniversary will be available in the winning zone on the third floor from 1-9 p.m. while supplies last. Also, the casino’s fresh buffet will offer a special $20 dinner buffet featuring prime rib.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years,” said Osterhaus. “We’ve accomplished so much in the past 20 years. The success of the Harrah’s Metropolis stems from the hard work and dedication by our outstanding employees every day. It is extremely gratifying to see team members move up in their careers at Harrah’s Metropolis and be able to provide for their families and thrive in their communities.”
