Wind Creek Hospitality Purchases 2nd Casino Site in Mississippi

Proposed Wind Creek Hospitality Casino DIbervilleWind Creek Hospitality which is a tribal gaming firm managing casino operation of Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Mississippi has purchased an additional gaming site in D’lberville. It has begun working on the plans for the development of a brand new casino over there.

The Royal D’lberville land was purchased by the company in the month of March last year. The latest addition will certainly add a new set of features in its gaming facilities. The Chief Executive Officer of Wind Creek, Jay Dorris, has confirmed the purchase stating that the company now had a majority interest in it.

Peter Simon who is the executive of Las Vegas casino earlier owned the site. According to Dorris, the market research was underway in the area and the final architectural designs will be completed once the research provides an input, a process that takes up to 6 months. The firm will have 34 acres after this fresh purchase and 2 sites will be legally used for the purpose of development of a casino on Black Bay.

As per the regulations of Mississippi Gaming Commission, there should be a minimum of 300 hotel rooms in a casino project. Apart from that, there should be a casino floor measuring 40,000 SQ feet, restaurants and another unique set of attractions for the visitors. The first casino to open in D’lberville is Scarlet Pearl Casino in December 2015. Although the casino did not affect the existing casinos in the coastal areas, those in Biloxi suffered a loss in terms of revenue.

In Alabama, 3 casinos are run by Wind Creek and it owns a majority stake in 2 greyhound tracks in Florida. It is trying to run a casino in Nevada by teaming up with Washoe Tribe.

As per Dorris, the new casino in D’lberville will compliment with its casino properties in Alabama instead of competing. The latest casino is going to be a Class III slot machines project and it will pay out a 12 percent gaming tax because it is not located in the tribal areas.

Dorris has highlighted that after the casino starts its operation in the D’lberville property, it would honour the Wind Creek Rewards’ loyalty program. He further stated that Wind Creek will like to develop into a close working relationship with the officials of D’lberville city and Mississippi Gaming Commission.

Dorris further says that there are ample plans to expand further in the coming years, but the main focus at the moment is to work out plans that will make the best use of the casino site and identify a unique attraction for the facility.
