US – Island View opens Beach Casino making it the largest casino in Mississippi

By - 22 June 2018

Officials with Island View Casino Resort opened the doors today to a $75m casino expansion during a ceremony attended by several local and state dignitaries.

Island View’s Beach Casino is located on the south side of US Highway 90 adjacent to its Beach Tower. The Beach Casino is a 43,000-square-foot smoke-free casino. This expansion is the fourth phase of growth for the Island View Casino Resort, which opened 15 September 2006. With this expansion, Island View boasts the largest casino floor in the State of Mississippi, totaling 126,000 square feet of gaming space. Island View’s dual casino options offer guests a choice of smoking or non-smoking with both casinos offering superior promotions, high quality games and first-class entertainment. Owners Rick Carter and Terry Green have invested over $400m into the resort, which includes over 1,000,000-square feet of beachfront gaming, hotel and entertainment space.

“As a private, locally owned business, we recognized the opportunity to further invest in the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s future. This casino expansion strongly supports our area’s tourism industry and generates an economic impact from the 300 new jobs that we have created,” said Rick Carter.

Terry Green added: “Our focus has always been on delivering a great resort experience with memorable service for our guests. Island View’s Beach Casino gives guests a smoke-free option without giving up the amenities they have come to enjoy.”

Lindsey Inman, CEO of the Island View Casino Resort, added: “Guests will enjoy the same games and promotions on the beach side as they have come to expect on the north side of the property. This is the first and only casino on the Mississippi Gulf Coast to actually be built as smoke-free. We are very excited and proud to bring the Beach Casino to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”
