Against all odds, NCAA and NBA basketball are already heating up for what promises to be a stunning 2021 season. NBA legends are rising and falling while regular season shakeups in the NCAA deliver underdogs a chance at the March Madness crown.
Buzzer-beating 3-pointers and glorious upset wins are practically guaranteed, and you can get in on all the action shot-by-shot with Tunica’s sportsbook and six world class casinos.
Between all the trash talk and last-minute jubilation, Tunica’s casinos provide unparalleled gaming, dining, pampering, and entertainment opportunities—all while maintaining sensible COVID precautions to keep you and your crew as safe as possible.
If you’re looking for the best viewing experience and the safest getaway week or weekend, you’d be hard pressed to find a more ideal destination than Tunica! Pack your team jersey, throw on your team hat, call up your boys, and put together a plan for a little basketball and sportsbook action!
In Tunica, there’s always more than one way to play. From sportsbook promotions to discounted odds during special hours, you’ll find bonuses, benefits, and free play money just about everywhere you look.
At the Hollywood Casino and the 1st Jackpot Casino, you’ll enjoy the Barstool Power Hour which offers daily discounts during weekday play. Bettor-friendly discounted odds on all standard spread, money line, and total bets across selected leagues and matchups are available from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily! You won’t find better odds and better prices this side of the Mississippi!
Both Hollywood and 1st Jackpot are also offering Lucky Draws every Tuesday—chances to turn your losing sportsbook ticket into $100 of free slot play! Just deposit your losing ticket in the drawings and keep your fingers crossed. Participants don’t even have to be present to win, so you can still enjoy all the dining, gaming, and entertainment Tunica has to offer while taking a shot at some sweet slot play!
From backing your alma mater in their biggest bracket matchup to placing a hefty wager on King James himself, Tunica’s got you and your boys covered with bets on the biggest icons and the pluckiest underdogs.
You’ll find a unique sportsbook experience at each of Tunica’s six glamorous casinos, each with its own style of play to match your style of basketball fandom.
Gold Strike Casino ups the ante with its BetMGM Book Bar and Grill—a multimedia drinking, dining, and gambling epicenter like few others on the planet Earth. Cold brews and comfort foods accompany over 50 HD TVs while a VIP lounge area takes your sports viewing experience to cosmic heights! Take a break between games to play a little bar-side video poker or order up some Knock Out wings to share—whatever you and the fellas get up to, you’ll be having the time of your lives.
You don’t have to be a Celtics fan to enjoy the luck of the Irish at the Fitz Casino & Hotel. With knowledgeable staff, decadent seating, and expertly crafted cocktails from the nearby Stage Bar, your crew can get nice and comfy with a team-themed drink while celebrating every basket from tipoff to buzzer. With cocktails to match your team colors—blue curacao for Duke and the Wildcats, orange liqueur for the Cavaliers—you’ll be feeling the team “spirit” like never before!
For crews with split allegiances, Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall has the multi-screen sportsbook seating of your dreams. You can watch Harden and the Nets on one screen, Curry and Kerr on another, all while enjoy the fellowship of watching together—something that’s been sadly missing for the better part of year.
If your crew prefers a luxurious watching experience, The Book at the Horseshoe Hotel & Casino has row after row of plush, leather chairs arranged theater style. Watch every shot, rebound, foul, and crushing dunk complete with bottle service to wet your whistle and 5 in-house restaurants serving everything from steak to burgers to pan-fried pork dumplings.
The greatest luxury for sports fans in Tunica these days is the simple, unrivaled fun of watching the games together. With thousands of rooms and suites, copious seating, and countless TVs, you and your crew can gather together in the knowledge that Tunica is doing everything in its power to keep you safe.
Social distancing is a cinch in Tunica, and everyone from servers to bartenders and dealers to sportsbook attendants is absolutely committed to sanitizing, spacing, and doing whatever it takes to keep the show going.
After nearly a year of good behavior, isn’t it time to celebrate the ups and downs, sunk shots and bricks, thrills and chills of the NBA and NCAA basketball season? You and your crew can create a “bubble” of your own. With casinos, shopping, golfing, hunting, drinks, dining, and—most of all—sports, it might just be the best bubble in the known universe!
