Margaritaville Resort executives say they "will provide guests with a casually elegant atmosphere, along with a fun and entertaining tropical paradise experience." The casino will be 30 thousand square feet and will feature more than 1,300 slot machines and 46 table games. The 18 story, 396 room hotel has already changed the skyline of Bossier City. There will be four dining venues including a riverfront fine dining seafood and steak restaurant. Margaritaville will also have a state-of-the-art 900 seat performance hall.

The complex will mean more than 1200 jobs for the local community.
