Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Even in the midst of a global health crisis, Tunica’s six world-class casinos are committed to providing the same sensational, heart-pounding entertainment known throughout the South and beyond.
With sanitation and safety in mind, Tunica has scrubbed every square inch of felt, leather, and neon to give guests the utmost confidence during their adrenaline-pumping stays. Things may look a little different here or there, but the thrills shine as brightly as they always have.
Pack your sharpest outfit, your face mask, and your “big win” hopes and dreams, and set out for some safe and satisfying escapades in Tunica!
Same Feeling, Same Fun
For the most part, the fun in Tunica is the same as you love and remember!
With the return of sports comes the return of sports books. Every casino in town is happy to help you wager on the big game or playoff possibility of your choice down to every point, pass, and pitch!
The glittering poker room at the Horseshoe Casino remains open for all challengers to test their skills! Make your hand and your dreams come true with the same reliable table-side service and complimentary beverages.
For those who like to take a dip between games, the resort pool at Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall provides a perfect spot to unwind mere steps away from the action. And don’t miss the tinsel town décor at Hollywood Casino while browsing the incredible selection of slot machines. Movie memorabilia adorns the 54,000-square-foot space combining the best of casino suspense with a hugely impressive cinema museum.
Your favorite table games haven’t gone anywhere at all! You’ll find enough blackjack, roulette, and craps to satisfy the most serious players at the Gold Strike Casino where the nightlife (like the tables games) sets a gold standard. The restaurants at 1st Jackpot are still serving instant classics and surprising delights for both in-person and take-out dining. Katt’s Kitchen, the Silo Eatery, and the Barn Prime Steakhouse specialize in decadent and memorable meals you’ll be thinking about for days after you’ve cleaned your plate.
You’ll find the same wonderful views of the majestic Mississippi from your lavish room at the Fitz Casino and Hotel where the luck of the Irish endures with single-deck blackjack alongside a replica of the Blarney Stone!
Tunica is still as wild and ready as it always was! You’ll be having too much fun to spot the differences!
What to Expect for Your Safety
For the comfort and safety of our cherished guests, Tunica’s casinos have adopted several sensible precautions.
Employees are required to wear face masks at all times and are screened before their shifts begin. Ever the gaming guides and good-time stewards of guest enjoyment, rest assured that our dedicated team members are smiling behind their masks—even if you can’t see it!
A 50% capacity restriction at all casinos keeps the floors, restaurants, and other amenities from overcrowding, while seating at tables and slot machines will be configured to allow for proper social distancing. To avoid unnecessary contact, valet parking services will be discontinued. However, guests may enjoy complimentary self-parking for their greatest convenience!
As an extra precaution, plexiglass barriers have been installed between dealers and gamers, and rails and chairs are sanitized after each guest leaves. Guests must wear their masks when entering the casino, though not when drinking or eating.
Beyond that, you can expect to have the time of your life without worrying about your safety.
Tunica Is Open
Having a good time at Tunica’s six world-class casinos means taking a calculated risk, but that risk shouldn’t extend to your or your family’s safety. Let us think about sanitizing and seating while you choose between red or black, hit or stay.
After months of cautious optimism spent indoors, it’s time to venture out for a safe bit of glitz and glamor! Travel and stay in Mississippi safely while we take care of the rest.
