Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi May Need Partners To Be Built

November 20th, 2009

First announced in 2007, the Margaritaville Casino project in Biloxi has been on hold for over a year and now Harrah’s Entertainment is saying they may need partners to complete the construction:

Harrah’s Entertainment may need financial partners if it wants to build the Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi with the size and scope originally intended, says a company official.

R. Scott Barber, Harrah’s mid-South regional president, tells The Sun Herald that while Harrah’s is exploring a number of opportunities, there was nothing new to report.

Barber was in Biloxi for Friday’s meeting of the Mississippi Gaming Commission.

Original plans called for a $700 million resort with 798 rooms, a full-service spa, a pool/deck area with cabanas, bar and tropical landscaping, all on 46 acres of land south of U. S. Highway 90.
