NATCHEZ — The Mississippi Gaming Commission has granted a gaming license to Magnolia Bluffs Casino.
The Natchez Democrat reports the commission granted the approval yesterday during its meeting at the Natchez Grand Hotel.
The casino, which is scheduled to open Dec. 21, has been nearly six years in the making.
The casino first received site approval from the commission in 2007 and approval to proceed with development in 2008.
The approval expired after the company failed to submit proper financial documentation within a certain period of time.
The 43,000-square-foot casino will have 601 slot machines, 12 table games, a center bar with 20 poker games, two restaurants and a player’s club.
