Harrah's Casinos herald in month-long Rock Band competition

Dustin Burg

Harrah's Casinos is inviting gamers to visit its gambling hotspots and spend all their cash on slots show off their Rock Band skills during the free, MTV Games-sponsored Total Rock, Total Rewards Rock Band Competition. The seafood buffet, however, will cost extra.

The musical event kicks off in March at 17 Harrah's casinos in the US and Canada, with weekly Rock Band competitions offering up various prizes. Come April, four regional contests will take place, with the most talented group receiving $10,000 and the opportunity to open for The B-52s in Atlantic City. Registration details and a list of participating casinos can be viewed here.

Note that no Harrah's Rock Band competition band of any talent level will match the musical prowess that was Robin and the Stiqers or the E3 '08 Joystiq Band. Just be glad that team Joystiq isn't entering the casino rock-off.
