Down Home Cookin’ In Tunica

Southern culture has no better representative than its food. The spirit, tradition, and values of the South are spices in themselves, translated through the tastebuds for a deeper understanding of place and people. Both inside and out of its six world-class casinos, Tunica, Mississippi, is still very much a Southern city. In fact, the glamor and neon only accentuate the unique qualities of Southern living. With suites looking out on the mighty Mississippi, college football on the TVs, and beloved Deep South staples hot and ready from the kitchen, Tunica’s identity remains passionately and proudly Southern. These iconic local examples…

Even now, among the gorgeous racket of a casino floor, the blackjack table becomes an oasis of familiarity. But while sleepover blackjack and casino blackjack share a lot in common, there are some key differences worth remembering. If you’re dreaming about green felt and the exhilarating swoosh of…

662 Bistro Opens At Horseshoe Casino Tunica

Chef Otis Dickerson, originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana brings his love for Southern quality and tradition to the new 662 Bistro at Horseshoe Casino Tunica. The restaurant’s menu is heavily influenced with the flavors of Creole and Southern cuisine. The menu looked so good we knew we had to try it our as soon as possible. One of the first things I was excited to try was the eggplant hummus with warm naan bread. The tanginess of the hummus, creamy eggplant with garlic and the warm bread was the perfect way to start our meal. I paired that with Panzanella…

What Brings You Good Luck in the Casino?

I was playing video poker and noticed that anytime the woman next to me had three of a kind on an initial deal, she'd pause, stand up, take a deep breath, then sit and make her draw. I finally mentioned it, and she said, "I guess it's superstition. I know it doesn't really help, but somehow it feels right to me if I have a chance at four of a kind or a royal." I followed up with a group of slot players. Most said they have no superstitions, but a few have things that make them feel luckier. WANDA:…

Tunica Nutrition Opens In Downtown Tunica

Tunica Main street has a new business and it’s owned by 17 year old Burch Franklin. Burch decided to open the business after the school she was attending in Colorado closed due to COVID-19. She needed a summer job and didn’t want to have to drive out of town for work. She frequently visited other towns to get nutrition drinks with her friends and decided it would just be better to have one in town.

Sports Betting on Baseball

When sports bettors turn to baseball, point spreads, or a "run line," are available just as they are in football or basketball. If the Reds are playing the Cardinals in St. Louis, with the Reds listed at +1.5, then Cardinals bettors need them to win by two runs or more, while Reds bettors win if Cincinnati wins the game or loses by only one run. More commonly, though, baseball bettors focus on the money line. The run line isn't as popular as point spreads in football and basketball. You might see the Cardinals listed at -130 and the Reds at…
