Gaming commission approves new site for Long Beach casino
The Mississippi Gaming Commission has approved the site for another casino along the Gulf Coast.
Regulators voted unanimously Wednesday to approve a location in Long Beach for its first casino.
Developer James Parrish and his investors must show they have financing to complete the project and that it meets the required guidelines for size of the casino, a 300-bed hotel, and a fine dining restaurant.
Long Beach Mayor George Bass says the casino plans must be approved by the city’s architectural review board.
