Tunica casinos to reopen today

Farther north, there were signs things were getting better.

The Gold Strike casino in Tunica County was to reopen Wednesday and two others may do so as soon as Thursday.

All but two of Mississippi’s river casinos have been closed due to flooding. The river has already crested at Tunica and is starting to recede.

Mississippi Gaming Commission director Larry Gregory said officials performed tests at the Gold Strike, Horseshoe and Roadhouse casinos.
Gregory said “they fared better than most of the other casinos.”
