Coastal areas considered for new casinos

January 25, 2011

Tunica County may not be the home of the 4 new casinos that are being planned. The Gulf Coast is expected to be the location of 1 new casino. The rest may be built in Mississippi.

This is due to the Tunica gaming industry's lack of significant growth. Experts have reported that the Tunica area is in need of industry other than gaming. That there also needs to be stronger attractions for tourists before more casinos are built there.

The Gulf Coast has seen areas of growth beginning new possibilities. Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Casino will be located on Biloxi's back bay. It's due to open at the years end.
Visits over all to the casinos have dropped from 2007's 17.4 million to 9.6 million in 2009. The number of visitors from out of state have also declined.

However, Mississippi has seen a 30% increase in guests. This adds to the attractiveness of a new location to build the casinos.
