The commission, in a 3-0 vote Thursday, again rejected the company’s plan for the Harbor Town Casino on the waterfront in Gulfport.
In April, the commission asked developers to add more to their proposal, hoping the additional investment would bolster coast tourism.
Harbor Town’s Jake Vanderlei says the company expanded its gaming floor by 44 percent, added 200 additional slot machines and 26 tables. He says the new proposal also added hotel rooms and a parking garage
Executives had hoped the $6 million increase in the investment would be enough to win approval.
Rotate Black chief executive Duel Cooper says the company will consider its options.
