Tunica casinos to close due to flooding

All the Tunica casinos are located on the river side of the levees. They can rise with floodwaters because of how they are built (basically on barges on canals). I believe they are closing because the parking areas are likely to be underwater.

Here's the staggered closing schedule (subject to change):

  1. Only Harrah's rises with the river level. All of the others are in their own "ponds".

  2. I've not heard of casinos rising and falling ... very interesting. And the days ahead look a bit dicey!

  3. @anon: thanks for straightening that out.

  4. As I held my breath, the other players quickly agreed to my suggestion, Play Aristocrat Pokies
