Harrah’s turns out the lights for good

TUNICA, Miss. — Gamblers placed their final bets and took one last spin on the slots at Harrah’s Casino in Tunica this weekend.

At 12:05 Monday morning the slots went quiet and the exterior flashing lights were turned off.

Ceaser’s Entertainment decided to close the nearly 20-year-old casino, saying business is down.

It first opened as the Grand in 1996, then became Harrah’s .

The owners are still trying to sell the property, but so far there have been no buyers.

The Harrah’s property is the largest casino between Atlantic City and Las Vegas.
