Re: Fitz

They put alot of work into the place. Maybe it's just the new owners doing some much needed remodeling.

Re: One last party at the Roadhouse + quick visits to other casinos

Roadhouse is a total ghost town now, it's closed.

The winter months are lighter in Tunica, but weekends usually maintain some business.

Re: Fitz

MGM would price Gold Strike so high nobody would/could touch it except CET, and we know their history in Tunica. MGM is still holding it's breath for GA, $1,000,000,000 complex in downtown Atlanta. Although I still enjoy going, when I can, but, Tunica has seen it's peak. There's too much gambling cl...

Also on Resorts, Penn said when they were closing Resorts that they knew when they purchased the property that the barge was "in need of significant capital improvements" but then blamed expanded gaming in Arkansas for the closure. In other words they didn't want to replace the whole barge, but also...

Re: Fitz

Majestic sold Fitz last year to Foundation Gaming (undisclosed price, must've been a fire sale), after Full House failed repeatedly trying to buy it. Foundation is known for buying casinos and rebranding them. They did bring in a new'ish GM Tony Scudiero, current GM at Water View casino (Diamond Jac...

Re: Fitz

As of July 31, they're at 672 total machines, down from 893 in July 2018. It looked kinda empty to me too. They've moved all the tables I think to where high limit used to be, which makes sense seeing as how they only have 12 high limit machines now. Pretty drastic drop as all the other casino in Tu...

Fitz

Fitz has done a total remodel of the casino after being the same old casino for 25 years, kinda like the way people fix up the house right before putting it up for sale. Very suspicious.

Re: Memorial weekend - 4 nights in 4 different hotels

The current long term plan in place by the Tunica CVB is to get approval from the state for land based casinos, like in Biloxi after Katrina, in Tunica county and hope the existing casinos will reinvest (abandon their current properties) in new properties closer together, and I presume closer to Int...

Re: Memorial weekend - 4 nights in 4 different hotels

That Royal Inn is definitely a last resort to stay at, better off sleeping in the car. We stayed there years ago and it was a dump then, I'm sure nothing changed. There's another one there, I don't recall the name, but I think the place is pink, it's along the same lines as Royal Inn. Resorts closed...

Lee spokeswoman Laine Arnold said the Republican doesn't believe gambling expansion is best but recognizes that many lawmakers want to explore it. Senators narrowl...

Re: Resorts Tunica closing

Fitz has been very active on social media the past couple of months, posting lots of "jackpot" pictures. Clearly, they're struggling to keep people coming in the doors.

Re: One last party at the Roadhouse + quick visits to other casinos

It was a total ghost town when I was there in December. There may have been 6 or 7 people playing. I think CET ruined the casino when they rebranded it.

Re: sports book opening at the Gold Strike Aug 1 2018

I believe most all the casinos are opening a sports book. CET is a little behind, they just put up a job posting for Horseshoe about it yesterday. Sports betting may hopefully bring a little of the tourism business from Memphis for a day trip.

I had some good wins through the night, I didn't take many pictures but here's a couple of rare hits on S3000 reels. Here lately when I take pictures that ends up being the kiss of death, one picture and the winning is over.
