Margaritaville Casino has returned to Biloxi, MS...but not at the former site of the now closed casino.

New management is opening up the old Casino Magic property...this will be a family-friendly property with many family activities (e.g., zip line, avdventure-dome)...Casino Magic has been closed since Hurricane Katrina...CET swapped land in LA for this property and was planning to open Margaritaville, but stopped construction due to the great recession.

I wrote this in a trip report 5 months ago.....
I noticed work being done on the unused Casino Magic hotel this past weekend…this hotel is part of the Harrah’s property…nobody could tell me what was going on here…I read a report about 2 years ago saying this hotel was going to open, so maybe they are getting this ready for using.. the huge “for sale” sign is still hanging on the deck of Margaritaville closed casino…

Every Biloxi trip since writing this report I jogged past this property and saw work being done...but again, no one said what was going on...this casino/hotel complex sits right next to Golden Nugget, across the street from Harrah's Gulf Coast and just a mile east of the Hard Rock and Beau Rivage.

I was casino at this Margaritaville...stopped by here on Monday and no casino, just hotel with resort activities...I hope they can survive as a non-gaming destination.
