The property was first opened by Casino Magic Corp. as Casino Magic Bay St. Louis, which was largely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Its gaming barge floated over 7 mi (11 km) away and ended up in a forest. The ballroom at Casino Magic hosted the Heroes of Wrestling Pay-per-view in 1999 as well as two Ultimate Fighting Championship events UFC 15 and UFC 19.

Penn bought it from Pinnacle Entertainment in 2002 and renamed it Hollywood in 2006. [1][2]
