Harrah's Metropolis is a riverboat casino located on the Ohio River in Metropolis, Illinois. Originally 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 as part of its 2000 acquisition of Players International.[1] [2]

Harrah's Metropolis includes a casino with more than 1,200 slot machines and 25 table games, a hotel with 258 rooms, a showroom, and five restaurants.[3]
