Mississippi gambling commission rejected two casinos

20 Mar 2017

Mississippi gambling commissionThis was not the first, but is the second time that the Mississippi state regulators have denied to a bunch of casinos to get permission to operate in specific areas in the territory. The three-member Mississippi Gaming Commission had a 90 minutes meeting and in this session they rejected two casino sites, without providing though any explanations about why they did rejected those two casinos. The commission denied an application from RW Development for a Biloxi site in 2008 and similarly refused Jacobs Entertainment’s application for a site in Diamondhead in 2014.

Major Hewes commented prior to the Commission’s meeting: «The greater impact would be the effect of completely changing the character of our south Mississippi community, as it would effectively open the floodgates to an indiscriminate proliferation of gaming sites to areas never contemplated or desired. Furthermore, this cannot be about limitations on competitive opportunities, as a multitude of legal gaming sites are presently in existence and available for development.».
