Harrah's Sets New Dates for WSOP Events - Monday 23rd of January 2006

Harrah's License Company, LLC, an affiliate of Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: HET) today announced new dates and an expanded schedule for its World Series of Poker Circuit stop at Caesars Palace® in Las Vegas next spring.

The revised Caesars Palace Circuit schedule includes a new $5,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. event that will test entrants' expertise in four games - Hold'em, Omaha, stud and stud eight or better.

The expanded 14-day schedule begins April 28 and concludes May 11 with the finals of the $10,000 buy-in no-limit Hold'em championship. The winner of that event receives prize money and qualifies to play in the 2006 Tournament of Champions(SM), a freeroll competition in which 27 players will vie for $2 million in prize money.

The Caesars Palace Circuit will mark the return of poker to the famed resort after a 15-year hiatus. The Circuit event will also be the first major poker tournament in the spectacular new, 6,000-square-foot private tournament room at Caesars. The tournament room is adjacent to the new 30-table poker room, which will offer non-stop live-game action to players eliminated from Circuit events, as well as other Caesars' customers.

There are six remaining stops in the 2005-06 Circuit season. Remaining stops include: Harrah's® Atlantic City Feb. 7-17, Harrah's Rincon Feb. 26- March 7, Caesars Atlantic City March 21-31, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas April 28-May 11, Harrah's New Orleans May 18-28 and Harrah's Lake Tahoe June 6-16.
