The Silver Slipper Casino is the first land-based casino to be built from the ground up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Located on the former site of Bayou Caddy’s Jubilee Casino, Hurricane Katrina destroyed the casino barge. Mississippi changed its casino laws allowing casinos to be placed on the shore.

The 100,000 SF, 24/7 gaming destination offers over 1,000 slot machines, 26 game tables offering five different games, a nine table poker room, retail space, three restaurants offering everything from buffet-style to fine dining, the Casino Stage Bar featuring live entertainment and a 5- story open parking structure.

A condo project and hotel are planned for the future.
