History of Resorts Casino Tunica
The casino opened in 1994 under the name of The Southern Belle Casino. This didn’t last long as the casino closed its doors only a few months after opening them, and stayed closed until Harrah’s Entertainment, which owned a casino about half a block away, bought and reopened the property in 1996. Harrah’s briefly operated both properties, but eventually closed to old one and concentrated purely on the Southern Belle. In 2004 Harrah’s bought Caesars Entertainment, which would go on to become one of the biggest casino and resort companies in North America. This would mean that Harrah’s, or Caesars would have control of five of Tunica’s nine casino’s. Harrah’s then decided that in the spirit of fair play, and anti competitive domination that they would sell the Southern Belle along with one other casino to Colony Capital, who renamed the resort in 2005 to Resorts Tunica.
