Five Casino Bids Made For Pope County, One For Jefferson County

Prior to the May 30 deadline, state gaming officials had only received two applications in late 2018, one from Gulfside Casino Partnership in Pope County and the other from the Quapaw Nation’s Downstream Development Authority to locate a casino-hotel complex in Jefferson County.     MORE
