IP Biloxi Reopens Post-Katrina

A crowd of impatient gamblers rushed into the IP Casino just after 11 a.m. Thursday, a reopening that was delayed two hours because of a glitch in the surveillance system.

"Let the good times roll," Mayor A.J. Holloway said as he cut the ribbon to the completely renovated and refurbished casino.

The casino's new poker room remained closed, but the surveillance cameras may be repaired in 24 to 48 hours, said Larry Gregory, executive director of the Mississippi Gaming Commission.

Two more casinos will open before the end of the year, the Isle of Capri on Dec. 26 and the Palace on Dec. 30.

The people at the front of the lines included drive-in gamblers from Alabama and Florida. Air flights in and out of the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport are almost up to their pre-Katrina levels so gamblers also can fly into Biloxi.
