Miss. regulators certify Jimmy Buffet's casino

Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Casino certified by Miss. gaming commission, opens Tuesday By The Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) ' Jimmy Buffett says creating jobs on the Gulf Coast is a rewarding part of his new Margaritaville Casino and Resort in Mississippi.

Buffet was in Jackson Thursday when the Mississippi Gaming Commission signed off the certification for the casino, set to open Tuesday in Biloxi.

The meeting was a formality. Gaming Commission Chairman Jerry St. Pe told Buffett and his business partner, John Cohlan, the casino had already been found suitable for certification.



Buffett told the board the casino will be fun but also will bring "a thousand new jobs to the Gulf Coast at a time they're needed."

After the meeting, Buffett wouldn't say if he'll perform at the opening, but pointed out that he's "a shameless musician and coming home seems like a party to me."
