Hollywood Casino Tunica: Celebrating 20 Years of Gaming Excellence

IN THE EARLY 1990’S, TUNICA, Miss., was one of the poorest counties in the country. Located just two miles south of Memphis, hot summers and cotton fields embellished the otherwise unremarkable region. Then, in 1990, legislation legalized casino gaming, and the race was on to build the biggest and the best facilities to meet the demands of gamblers and to compete with the booming business being had in Las Vegas. The tax revenue generated was an immediate benefit to the county school systems, road ways and downtown district. Today there are eight casinos boasting almost $1 billion in annual revenue and providing thousands of jobs.

Show Review: SaltOriya Sizzles at Beau Rivage Resort & Casino thru August 17

DreamCast Entertainment has struck again with its new theatrical circus, SaltOriya, featured at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, MS.  This exciting show takes viewers into another world as the performers push boundaries of human imagination and create death defying thrills for on lookers.  The show takes a person’s dreams to the extreme, and is perfect for any audience of any age.  SaltOriya gives an out of world experience and allows people to live vicariously through the performers.  I recently had the pleasure of taking my daughters, six and nine years old, out on a date with mom to see SaltOriya. They were entranced and enthralled, in disbelief and amazement.  Their eyes were so big and filled with excitement.

Destination Lexington: Horse Farms & Bourbon Distilleries

THERE ARE FEW PLACES in the world as eclectic as Kentucky. Known as the horse and bourbon capital of the world, the state is the birthplace of approximately 30 percent of the nation’s horses each year and home to nearly 5 million barrels of aging bourbon. The entire state’s population is only 4.3 million, if that tells you anything.

 

While many horse farms and bourbon distilleries are scattered throughout the commonwealth, the city of Lexington, located in the heart of the Bluegrass State, has an array of both. In addition, the city is home to Keeneland, one of the most historic racetracks in the country and the world’s largest Thoroughbred auction house, where approximately half of the 11 Triple Crown winners have been sold.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi – $32.5 Million Platinum Power Tower

BET YOU DIDN’T THINK Biloxi knew how to rock ‘n’ roll? Well, as Eric Clapton would say, “We got the boogie-woogie right down to our very soul!” Considering Mississippi is the “Birthplace of America’s music,” it is fitting that the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Biloxi is rocking a lot harder after investing $32.5 million in a captivating hotel that is unlike any of its kind on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. 

Named the Platinum Tower, the hotel is themed and decorated with memorabilia from only platinum recording artists. Shakira, Bette Midler, Meatloaf, Brett Michaels and eight other artists each have floors dedicated to their talents.

Each floor is decked out with costumes, photos, paintings and quotes throughout the halls and smoke-free rooms.
