  • Harrahs

Harrahs Jazz Casino is located in downtown New Orleans, at the foot of Canal Street. This is the first “land-based” casino to be built in Louisiana and has the largest gaming area of any casino in North America. The casino has four levels: a lower basement for parking, an upper basement for administrative offices, a first floor for gaming and a second floor for entertainment. The casino connects with a five-level parking garage by a pedestrian tunnel that crosses under Poydras Street. The casino operates 24 hours a day, year-round. Two 15,000 volt generators located on the roof of the parking garage supply emergency power to the facility. Fourteen unit substations located within the casino distribute normal power. Branch circuits and category five data cables are routed through three miles of under-floor duct to serve the 3,000 slot machines and 125 gaming tables. The electrical workforce peaked with more than 300 journeyman and apprentices.
