After nearly a decade of planning, the D'Iberville casino project is a "no go." Jacobs Entertainment says it no longer makes financial sense to build a resort on the north side of the back bay.
Jacobs' president Steve Roark told WLOX News that D'Iberville turned out to be a risk his company couldn't afford to take.
Roark cited the new Biloxi Hard Rock and a Caillavet Street casino proposal as two big reasons why D'Iberville couldn't compete in this market. The Jacobs site is just west of the I-110 bridge.
