After just a little over two years being open, Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi has closed the doors.
“It’s unfortunate, but it is a sign of the times,” said Allen Godfrey, executive director of the Mississippi Gaming Commission. “I believe it does solidify the idea of amenities and hotels. While those are not guarantees to success, they often do lead to success. I understand Margaritaville was wanting to get there.”
“Our hearts certainly go out to Margaritaville employees and their families,” said Biloxi Chief Administrative Officer David Nichols, “and we’re hopeful that the state’s rapid response dislocated worker unit will be able to help these workers find new employment.”
“Developments like this are not uncommon in the Mississippi gaming industry. We operate in a free-market system, and a number of factors come into play, including location, amenities, marketing, management and so forth. In the 20-plus years since gaming opened in Biloxi, we’ve seen a number of casinos come and go – Lady Luck, Gold Coast, Casino Magic, the President and the Biloxi Belle, to name a few — but the Biloxi casino market remains strong.”
Margaritaville has has multiple problems since its attempts to open several years ago.
