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.
