Sam's Town Casino - Shreveport, Louisiana

Sam's Town Shreveport is one of five casinos in the Shreveport and Bossier City area. Found on the docks of Shreveport, it sits at around 23,000 square foot. The casino has a 500 room hotel nearby, while the casino floor offers nearly 1,150 slots games and over 25 gaming tables.

Sam's Town opened for business in 2004. Before that time, this casino was known as Harrah's. So if you have been gambling in Shreveport gambling, you might already know where to look for Sam's Town Casino.

Harrah's didn't sell this casino because it lost money. They had bought the Horseshoe casino and race track across town, and didn't want to oversaturate the local market. Therefore, they put their local namesake up for sell.
