MATTHEWS, N.C., June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  PokerTek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PTEK), is pleased to announce that it has installed 50 additional PokerPro player positions at Harrah's Cherokee Casino, into the property's newly constructed poker room. This brings the total number of installed PokerPro player positions to 150 at the property.

"Adding more PokerPro tables helps us accommodate our growing player base and will allow us to offer more WSOP tournaments," commented Ron Hager, Director of Table Games for Harrah's Cherokee. "We're proud of our new poker room expansion, and pleased that PokerPro continues to grow with us."

Harrah's Cherokee provides the only live poker within 350 miles of Cherokee, NC, a radius that encompasses Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA, Knoxville and Chattanooga, TN. The room offers a range of cash games, including $1/2 No-Limit, $2/5 No-Limit and $3/6 Limit Cash games, and a variety of tournaments.

PokerPro tables are cutting-edge electronic gaming devices that play live poker and allow players to play against one another.  Players can privately view their hole cards and place bets using their individual screens. The community cards, pot and player table stakes are displayed on a large center monitor for all players to see.

The expansion of Harrah's Cherokee is currently the largest hospitality expansion project underway in the Southeast and one of the largest in the United States, offering the greatest number of hotel accommodations in the Carolinas. Upon completion in 2012, the 56-acre property will have added a third hotel tower incorporating luxury accommodations and high-end suites, a 3,000-seat events center, entertainment and VIP lounges, 18,000-square-foot spa, all new state-of-the-art digital poker room, Asian gaming room, a variety of new restaurant and retail outlets, and new hotel and casino parking garages. Harrah's Cherokee is also renovating its current casino facilities and doubling the size of its casino floor to 150,000 square feet while increasing video and table game capacity. 

Harrah's Cherokee Casino & Hotel is an enterprise of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation, located 50 miles west of Asheville at the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
