Big plans proposed for Harbor Town Casino

GULFPORT — Officials with Rotate Black hope to return to the Mississippi Gaming Commission next week with a larger budget for developing Harbor Town Casino at the Gulfport waterfront.

Last month the Gaming Commission tabled plans for the casino, saying as presented it would be the smallest casino in South Mississippi.

The proposal could be brought up again when the Gaming Commission meets Thursday in Jackson.

The new version provided to the newspaper increases the initial investment from $77 million to $83 million. It enlarges the casino floor to 31,343 square feet with 200 more slot machines and a total of 26 table games. John Paulsen, CEO of Rotate Black, says that would make the casino floor larger than Treasure Bay, Margaritaville and Grand Casino Biloxi.
