he Silver Slipper Casino, a popular destination for North Shore residents, wants to add 150 hotel rooms in a new tower that will also have meeting space, an additional restaurant and an entertainment venue, casino officials told the Mississippi Coast television station.
The casino is working on getting the various permits required for the project, the station reported. An expected completion date for the project is spring 2021, the station reported.
The planned expansion comes as developers seek the state’s permission to build a new casino at a site along the beach nearby. The developers are eyeing a 98.5-acre site in the Clermont Harbor subdivision, coast media outlets reported.
“The sad thing for us right now is that without that space, we actually turn people away every week,” a Silver Slipper official, Baxter Lee, told the station.
