Gulfside Casino Partnership

Statement from Gulfside Casino Partnership


Terry Green, co-owner of Gulfside Casino Partnership, released the following statement about the proposed River Valley Casino Resort in Pope County:


For more than three decades, we have been strong community partners to the Gulf region. We have generously supported schools, first responders, nonprofits and local economic development efforts.


When granted a license in Pope County, we will do the same for the River Valley. During the application period, we submitted a proposal to the Arkansas Racing Commission to build a first-class casino resort. As evidenced by the side-by-side comparison, this now one-phase $254-million project will create significant tax revenue and stop gaming dollars from going to casinos in Oklahoma—enabling maximum long-term benefits to Pope County.
