Economic impact will be huge
The closing of Tunica County’s casinos last week and early this week for an indefinite period of time will have far-reaching impact on the local and state economy, county officials say.
Closing the casinos for a month could lead to a combined $10 million loss in local and state gaming tax revenue, $3.54 on the local level alone. Approximately 9,300 jobs with a near $18 million payroll have been displaced due to record flooding along the Mississippi.
