Racing Commission Puts Pope County Casino Bids Back On Roulette Wheel

The proposed $225 million Pope County casino parlay is back on again, so says the seven commissioners at the Arkansas Racing Commission.

The Arkansas Racing Commission on Thursday kicked off a special meeting by denying a lone appeal from Gulfport, Miss.-based Gulfside Casino Partnership to build a multimillion-dollar hotel and gambling complex in Pope County. They later ended the meeting by reopening a new 90-day application period for new casino bids for the county after five proposals were summarily rejected by the panel two months ago.      MORE
