Casino revenues might be down, but one of the key players in the Margaritaville development proposed for Bossier City says that doesn't mean a new casino won't bring the Shreveport-Bossier area good fortune.
The 30,000 square foot casino, 400 room hotel and three restaurant development is projected to bring 1,500 jobs. Bossier Parish voters will decide whether to allow it to move forward in a special election in November.

Thirteen riverboat casinos across the state and four racetracks took in approximately $185.5 million dollars in August, down from 193.4 million in August of 2010.
