Gulfside Casino Partnership announces $250m Arkansas resort casino proposal

Mississippi Based Operator, Gulfside partnership LLC, on Thursday announced plans for a three phase $250m resort casino in Pope Country despite oppositions from residents of the Arkansas agricultural based Community.

The Company responsible for the Island View Casino Resort in gulfport has submitted a letter of support from Pope County Judge Jim Ed Gibson to the Arkansas Racing Commission for its casino gaming application.

Elected as county judge in 1998, Gibson will be replaced by Ben Cross who won the Pope County primary election in May and will be sworn in as county judge on Jan 1,2019.

The Amendment allows West Memphis Southland Park Gaming and Racing and Okalawn Racing and gaming in the city of Hot Springs to transform into full scale casino. Both Arkansas facilities had previously offered electronic skill games under a 2005 state law,  but will now be able to enlarge their portfolios to include sports betting and table games such as Poker and Blackjack.

Amendment 100 additionally provides for the Arkansas Racing Commission to authorise one casino each for the more rural popular County and Jefferson County.
