The southern state’s gaming regulator has approved the site for the long beach harbor resort. Hence, the region of Mississippi could be the home to 13th casino.
A report from the Sun Harald and local television channel, the decision from the Gaming Commission in Mississippi involves an abandoned plot of 12 acres of seaside land. This is in Long beach city which was once home to franchise of Kmart Corporation.
There are reports also stating that the process of approval has taken about 2 years to complete. The approved plot is now sitting near the long beach yacht club and about 3.5 miles west to the current Island view casino in the neighborhood.
The report from Sun Herald also stated that it does not mean a clearance to start work for the developer. The regulator will now find evidence that long beach harbor resorts LLC has enough funds to build a 40,000 sq ft facility. This would feature a high-end restaurant and a hotel with 300 rooms. It should also have some unique features to ensure it stand out from other competitors in the region.
