Casino Magic Will Reopen As Hollywood Casino

Casino Magic Bay St. Louis is going Hollywood. When the casino re-opens later this year, it will have a new name and a new theme. Penn National Gaming notified the Mississippi Gaming Commission last week that the resort would reopen as Hollywood Casino.

"The Hollywood Casino name has been very successful for Penn National Gaming in the Tunica, Mississippi and Aurora, Illinois markets, and we are also using it in Maine and Pennsylvania," said Kevin DeSanctis, President and Chief Operating Officer of Penn National Gaming.

"With the grand re-opening of our Bay St. Louis property, it was the perfect time to extend the use of this valuable, well-known name."

President and General Manager John Jagunich said Casino Magic's first floor operational areas, gaming and entertainment barges were all destroyed during the hurricane, including 200 rooms of the Casino Magic Inn.

The renovated casino operation will open with a temporary, land-based facility with over 1,200 slot machines, 20 table games and six poker tables. The hotel tower will re-open with 291 guest rooms and over 17,000 square feet of function space.

"We were able to re-build our meeting space with three additional meeting rooms to compliment our original 10,000 square foot ballroom," Jagunich said. "This will allow us to pursue group business on a broader scale as we will be one of the only properties on the coast with operational meeting space."

The Bridges Golf Club is currently closed and undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation. It's expected to reopen in mid-September. The RV Park is in operation and accepting reservations.
