Jefferson County Chooses Casino Operator


The investment of millions of dollars to help pass an amendment expanding Arkansas’ casinos may pay off in a bigger way for a Quapaw Nation-based gaming operator.

Local leaders in Jefferson County and Pine Bluff have selected Downstream Development Authority, owner and operator of Downstream Casino Resort, as their casino operator under the guidelines of the newly-passed casino amendment. Downstream is owned by the Quapaw Nation.

Issue 4, now Amendment 100 of the Arkansas Constitution, allows local municipal and county leaders to select who applies for a casino license in their community through a letter of support.    MORE
