and hospitality helped create the modern casino and helped popularize Poker with the motto,
“You gotta take care of the players.”   

In 2004, The Horseshoe in Tunica was purchased by Harrah’s Entertainment, who pledged to
keep the Binion trademark of treating gamblers well so they will come back. Because of this
reputation, the Horseshoe has been the Number 1 casino in the Tunica area.

Limit Hold'em $4/8, $10/20;
No Limit Hold'em $1/3 100 min 300 max, $2/5 200 min No max;
