9 October 2007

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE)-- Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: HET ) announced today that the 39th annual World Series of Poker® Presented by Milwaukee's Best Light will be staged at the Rio(TM) All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from May 30 through July 17, 2008.

"The team is still hard at work on the schedule of events for next year, but we've received so many requests for the dates that we decided to announce them now," said Jeffrey Pollack, WSOP Commissioner.

"We'll actually open the WSOP tournament room the week of May 26th for two special events," said Geno Iafrate, vice president and assistant general manager of the Rio. "This 'soft opening' will give players a chance to register early and avoid the lines we had last year during opening weekend -- our busiest time."
