Gaming Commission Approves Site for Biloxi Casino

The Mississippi Gaming Commission gave site approval to the proposed Biloxi Boardwalk Casino & Resort.

It marks the first in a series of approvals required for the casino proposed by Louisiana businessman Chris Ferrara, who also owns fire truck maker Ferrara Fire Apparatus in Holden (LA).

Biloxi Boardwalk would be the 10th casino in Biloxi and the 13th on Mississippi’s coast. Ferrara bought the 37 acres and 185,000 square-foot building in 2000 after the Heinz pet food factory closed.
