Harrah's Entertainment is planning to raise $610.9 million in an initial public offering this month of 31.3 million shares of common stock priced between $15 and $17 a share on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol CZR. They are also changing their corporate name to Caesars Entertainment for the second time, the first time they went to change their name was May 2008. This week’s Reader Poll question asks . . . Does the name of the corporation owning a casino you gamble / visit matter to you in any way? Why or Why not?  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!   (see other opinions below)

Reader Poll Replies:

I dont care what they call the casino, i just want a shot at winning.  Robert K.  NJ.

For my opinion, i like the old names and hate to see progress remove all the nostalgia of Las Vegas.  It seems like no one cares of historical importance.  Betty  Miami, FL

The name change means nothing to Me just keep giving the great comps. & I will keep coming.  Diane Schwarzkopf  Depew n.y.

They can change it to my name if they want, name is not important as much as what you get for the money spent gambling.   Darrel G  Phoenix AZ

It makes no difference to me what they call themself, just give me a deal on a room and good chance at winning and i am there.  Roger T  Chcicago IL

I look at one thing and one thing alone ............ Gambling Rules. For example, If I see a bunch of 6/5 Blackjack Tables, I don.t even walk in the place, not even to eat. If the place is willing to short me at the tables, I can imagine what they will do to me at dinner.
Why do the Casinos insist on milking the few loyal customers they have remaining. If Las Vegas ever wants to get back to the "good old days" they had better give gamblers a chance, just a chance. Don Omaha, NE

Personaly, it can effect where I might gamble, because of brand recognition:for example,while in Reno I saw a Circus-Circus and a Fitzgerald's,amidst a sea of other options,and admit I was attracted to those properties, as I know them from past Las Vegas trips. I indeed did spend considerably more time in those places checking them out,as I have played and done well in their Las Vegas counterparts, and knew the
"brand". Similar to my trip to Tahoe, where I instantly noticed a Harrahs and entered it!  David Gonnella  Portland,OR

I like the old names and the old vegas, dont take everything away.  Tim S.  Sacramento CA
