Caesars Entertainment Inc. announced Wednesday that its Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack property in Delaware County will be renamed Harrah's Philadelphia, effective May 12.
The new name coincides with the unveiling of the casino's most recent expansion that includes several new restaurants and 200 new slot machines to bring its total inventory to about 3,000 slots.
Last month, the casino reported the largest decrease in slots revenue — minus 7.6 percent — among Pennsylvania's 11 gambling halls. It grossed $22.4 million, down from $24.3 million a year ago, ranking it fourth in the state.
