Silver Slipper Casino is a beachfront casino in Hancock County, Mississippi, owned and operated by Full House Resorts. The Silver Slipper opened its doors for the first time on November 9, 2006. The casino has over 961 slots, 26 table games, 5 poker tables, and a keno parlor. Silver Slipper also has three restaurants: The Jubilee Buffet, The Blue Bayou Bar and Grill (fine dining), The Palm Court Café (24-hour eatery).

History[edit]

The casino was originally called the President Casino Broadwater Resort which was sold by President Casinos to Broadwater Development LLC on April 15, 2005.[1] Hurricane Katrina destroyed the casino barge used by the President Casino before it could be moved to its new location.

In the wake of Katrina, the Mississippi Gaming Commission changed its casino rules to allow land-based casinos. The Silver Slipper is the first ground up built casino on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. A wall inside the casino paid homage to the legacy of the Silver Slipper, a famous Vegas casino that closed its doors in 1988 but has found new life on the Mississippi Coast.

In October 2012, Full House Resorts acquired the casino for $70 million, with plans to potentially add a hotel.[2]
