New Tunica casino

All,

I read a while back that a new Tunica casino (10th casino) would be opening up in 2011 (I think in the site of the old Isle of Capri casino?).

Any new news on this? Will it be open by Fall?

Hubby and I were just talking about that when we went to Tunica Friday evening. We drove right by there going to Sam's and there doesn't seem to be any construction going on. I haven't heard the deal fell through, but I don't see any progress either. In fact, its been some time since I heard anything at all about. it.

Sams did own the building and used the hotel for overflow, but with the economy, I doubt that's an issue. I don't know if they have actually sold the building to the new developers or if they still own it.

There is an Isle of Capri casino in Lula, MS. about 30 minutes south of Tunica and 8 miles west on Hwy. 49. Went there on June 20th. Monday is Ladies Day and if you earn 1 point using your players card, you get a free buffet. New card sign ups also earn a free buffet. The north end of the casino was closed for repairs and remodeling. The south end casino was open and the food in the buffet was really tasty.

Sorry to get a little off-topic, but didn't Harrah's by back the Red Resort property down by the Hollywood? If not, what's going on with that casino?

Not as far as I know. My player's card for Ballys in Tunica also includes Resorts. Its not listed on the Harrahs website as one of their properties.
