Diamondhead casino project reapplies for approval

A Diamondhead casino project, first pitched in 2008 and rejected by the Mississippi Gaming Commission in 2014, has resurfaced.

Jacobs Entertainment went before the commission at a hearing in D’Iberville to reapply for approval.

Executives from the Colorado based company want to rekindle interest their casino resort proposal in Diamondhead. The $150 million project targets 70 acres on the south side of the interstate west of the old yacht club.
