Best and worst of Mississippi gulf coast casinos

  • 1. Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi
    Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi, Biloxi, Mississippi

    ***** out of ***** Best slot floor in Mississippi (north or south). Why? space, comfort, selection of machines. Here you can stretch out a bit while playing because the rows of slots are at least 4 feet apart (unlike the others). Ventilation is good, which is a plus for non-smokers. Good mix of reel-type vs. video slots (many casinos go overboard with video). Younger, more upscale crowd. Best beverage service anywhere. $5 table games during less busy hours (2am-2pm). Great players' club that (as of 2008) offers $10 to new players and a cash back ratio of 1% (i.e. $500 played equals 500 points which earns $5)

  • 2. Beau Rivage Casino
    Beau Rivage Casino, Biloxi, Mississippi

    *** out of ***** What the Beau offers in glamour and spectacle as you enter the property is quickly lost when entering the gaming floor. It has the largest number of machines, but heavily weighted toward video vs. reel-type. Rows of machines are quite uncomfortably close together. That and poor ventilation made me want to escape as fast as I could. Denominations range higher than most area casinos (i.e more 5c rather than 1c and more 50c rather than 25c. Never any $5 table games. Beverage servers very hard to find. Older but slightly more affluent crowd.

  • 3. IP Casino Resort Spa
    IP Casino Resort Spa - Biloxi, Biloxi, Mississippi

    ***1/2 out of ***** Second largest number of slots in Biloxi area. Good assortment of titles and denominations. One of the last 'barge' casinos and is showing its age despite a recently remodeled and very nice hotel and restaurant complex attached. Very poor ventilation, so if smoking bothers you, be prepared to take breathers outside. Generous players' club. Could use more space between rows of machines.

  • 4. Grand Biloxi Casino Hotel & Spa
    Harrah's Gulf Coast, Biloxi, Mississippi

    *** out of ***** Lowest number of machines at Biloxi casinos. Fair selection of slot titles, but tends toward higher denominations ( many machines that are penny credits at, say, Hard Rock, are 5c here). Slightly upscale. Above average arm room between slot rows makes long play times more comfortable. Part of Harrah's Total Rewards slot club program which is honored throughout USA/Canada.

  • 5. Island View Casino and Resort, 3300 W Beach Blvd, Gulfport, MS PH:1-877-774-VIEW (8439)

    ***1/2 out of ***** Formerly Grand Gulfport Casino, located about 5 miles west of Biloxi on Beach Blvd. Parking is scattered and confusing but there are shuttles to take you from surface lots and structure across Beach Blvd. Casino is MUCH larger than it looks from outside. My major complaint was, despite huge number of machines, there was a limited selection of titles and they lacked some of the most recent titles that were found at neighboring Biloxi sites. Decent arm room made possible by better spacing of machine rows. As of 2008, they had the most generous slot club promos, especially for new members. Older, less upscale crowd. Worth a trip out Beach Blvd.

  • 6. Isle of Capri Casino Resort
    Golden Nugget Biloxi, Biloxi, Mississippi

    *** out of ***** (Spring 2008) Still in process of opening a permanent land-based casino, it presently has machines spread out in former hotel areas, which isn't the most convenient when looking for specific slot titles. Compact arrangement gives little elbow room. Fair ventilation. Has many recent slot titles. Older. less affluent crowd. Generous slot club, especially for new members.

  • 7. Palace Casino Resort
    Palace Casino Resort, Biloxi, Mississippi

    ** out of ***** (as of 12/2007) One of last few barge-type casinos. Most crowded and uncomfortable arrangement of slots as I have ever seen. Smaller assortment of titles. More 'colorful' crowd when we visited (less affluent, etc). Did not join slot club as we were in hurry to exit.
