The future of Casino Magic Biloxi is rather uncertain. Pinnacle Entertainment owns the Highway 90 casino. Its CEO told WLOX News it will be at least six months before he makes a final decision about whether to rebuild the hurricane damaged resort.
According to Dan Lee, Pinnacle is actively working on coming back to Biloxi. But the CEO admitted factors such as new competition, and Highway 90 bridge construction timetables could permanently shut his casino down.
On August 29th, Hurricane Katrina tossed the Casino Magic gambling barge across Highway 90. Since then, insurance adjusters have been tallying up how much damage the Biloxi casino sustained.
