    History

    The casino was opened in 1994 as the Southern Belle Casino. That casino closed approximately four months after opening and remained shuttered for a short time. Harrah's Entertainment, which owned a Harrah's casino about a block away just off the main road, reopened the property in 1996.[1] The company briefly operated both locations as Harrah's casinos, but eventually closed the older facility, selling it to Isle of Capri Casinos. The former Southern Belle became the sole Harrah's property.

    In 2004, Harrah's agreed to buy Caesars Entertainment. The new company would have controlled five of Tunica Resorts' nine casinos: Harrah's, Grand Casino Tunica, Horseshoe Casino Tunica, Sheraton Casino and Hotel Tunica and Bally's Casino Tunica. Because of possible anti-competitive domination of the Tunica market, Harrah's agreed to sell the property, along with Bally's, to Colony Capital, who then created Rih Acquisitions Ms ii, llc to own and operate the casinos (including Bally's Tunica). The casino was renamed Resorts Tunica in 2005.[2]

    On November 9, 2011, Foundation Gaming Group from Gulfport, MS assumed the management of Resorts Casino and Hotel along with Bally's Casino Tunica.
