Too much of anything can be a bad thing. The real money Mississippi casino gambling industry continues to expand across the nation as well as on a global scale. This is especially true when it comes to internet gambling at online casino sites. While underdeveloped casino gambling markets still offer tremendous opportunities for expansion with land-based venues, some of the more mature markets are starting to feel the squeeze due to overexposure and excess capacity.
A good example of the negative effects of a saturated casino gambling market is Tunica , Mississippi. According to a recent post on www.bloomburg.com by Christopher Palmeri , one of the giants of the casino entertainment industry is pulling up stakes in that region with one of its underperforming properties by closing down the casino. The Tunica Roadhouse in Mississippi will cease operations at the end of next January according to its parent company, Caesars Entertainment.
How Has The Casino Saturation Been Taking its Toll in Mississippi Market?
The Las Vegas-based casino and entertainment company made it official that the Tunica Roadhouse Casino would be shuttered towards the end of the first month of the new year. The immediate plans for the adjacent hotel to the casino call for that property to remain open. The casino closure will impact roughly 150 employees. Caesars also owns and operates the Horseshoe Tunica and that casino resort is scheduled to remain open for business.
While the sale of land-based casinos is a common occurrence in the real money gambling industry, an outright closure is still rare. This was not the first time that Caesars shuttered one of its underperforming casino properties. Most notably was the closure of the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City in 2014. This was the second casino property Caesars recently closed in this region after shutting down Harrah’s Tunica that same year.
Profit is still the driving force for any large casino and entertainment conglomerate and poor market conditions cause by a proliferation of competitive casino gambling operations are bound to take it toll on some of the weaker players.
The Roadhouse Casino is one of eight casino properties in the Tunica market. According to statistics from the state gaming commission it had the smallest amount of casino floor space among those eight locations.
Along with Caesars’ Horseshoe Tunica, the other land-based gambling venues in that region include:
–Gold Strike Casino Resort
–Sam’s Town Casino Resort
–Resorts Casino Tunica
–1st Jackpot Casino
–Fitz Casino & Hotel
