Alabama, Mississippi, yeah – remember those guys? Some of us do and for casino fanatics that thought their vacations to the Gulf Coast would be forever changed, think again. The Miami Herald has a piece from the weekend FULL of details on the reopening of 12 Gulf Coast casinos in Biloxi, Gulfport, Waveland and Bay St. Louis. Another four casinos will open in the next two months. The only difference with a majority of the casinos is that they are and will be built on land. Good move.
