Shreveport and Bossier City’s sixth casino is slated to open for business this week. The Margaritaville
Resort Casino’s soft open will build up to festivities on July 3.
At its opening, the Bossier City casino will employ 1,500 workers. Construction on the 18-story hotel began in Feb. 2012. According to its public relations officials, the final price tag is $205 million. The hotel boasts nearly 400 rooms and 35 luxury suites. It will have three restaurants.
Developers of a new $197 million Bossier City riverfront casino say there is plenty of profit margin for a sixth casino in Shreveport-Bossier. Construction officially began Wednesday on the Margaritaville Resort Casino.
