On Thursday the location for the Diamondhead casino was denied. The Mississippi Gaming Commission voted against the site in a 3 to 0 vote.

The application was submitted by Jacobs Entertainment.

The reason behind the denial was that the casino would have been built on a man-made canal. Not on the Bay of St. Louis. However, the Gaming Commission will allow for Jacobs Entertainment to present their proposal again once more location information can be provided by the company.

Regulations on Mississippi casino state that casinos cannot be on land. Casinos can only be on the waters of the Mississippi Sounds, the Bay of St. Louis, or the Biloxi Bay.

The proposed location for the casino would have been built in a marsh area that is considered land.
