Tunica Roadhouse Casino and Hotel
Tunica Roadhouse Casino and Hotel is a riverboat casino with a roadhouse theme. The theme makes it unique in the Tunica resorts area and thus attracts a lot of people per year. A few totally unique attractions can be found at Tunica Roadhouse Casino and Hotel, including a mechanical bull and bar games such as beer pong. It is marketed as A place to Get Wild, so its average age group is a bit younger than some of the other casinos in the area.
The casino is one of three casinos located in casino centre and owned by Caesars Entertainment. The hotel and casino was originally opened in 1994 as a Sheraton brand hotel, but ITT Sheraton was bought out in 1998 by Starwood Hotel and Resorts Worldwide. All the casinos under Starwood were sold to Park Place Entertainment, which eventually became Caesars Entertainment and merged with Harrahs Entertainment in 2004. Harrahs had just acquired the nearby Horseshoe Casino, so now the parent company owned five of Tunica’s nine casinos. To avoid this Harrahs sold two of its casinos to Colony Capital.
The Tunica Roadhouse Casino and Hotel went through a number of ownership changes during this time, but continued to operate at The Sheraton Tunica until 2009 when it changed to Tunica Roadhouse Casino and Hotel. The Sheraton incarnation of the hotel and casino had a black forest theme.
