Vicksburg's charming atmosphere and rich history have been enchanting tourists for decades.
But this city by the river is also home to five casinos that attract thousands of visitors seeking fun, excitement and a chance at a big jackpot. The casino business has been a boon to Vicksburg residents for more than 15 years, bringing in new entertainment and dining options, creating a stable source of jobs and filling the city’s coffers with money that goes to improve schools, roads and public works.
The oldest and largest, Ameristar employs 850 people, making it not only the largest casino but one of Warren County’s largest single employers. Ameristar completed a $100 million renovation in September 2008, adding a 1,000 space parking garage, two new restaurants, a live poker room and expanded casino space. National entertainers, including Jewel, Trace Adkins, Blues Traveler and comedy acts, headline at the Bottleneck Blues Bar and Casino Cabaret. And Ameristar has four restaurants, including Bourbon's steak house and Bella’s, a new, upscale deli.
Riverwalk is a spacious riverside hotel and casino with stunning views from its rooms, a waterside sculpture garden and walkway, two restaurants, entertainment, and a meeting and conference center.
