Abstract Since the first modern dockside casino opened in Biloxi in August 1992, a total of ten casinos have opened:a1ong the coast of Mississippi. This creation of a gambling destination in the Southeast, perhaps a natural modern outgrowth of a historic pattern, had led to a variety of problems of interest to coastal geographers and coastal managers. These include landscape changes, landuse zonation conflicts, and changes in urban (resort) morphology-·all of which are important for urban planning and proper guidance of casino development. Biloxi, with six of the present ten coastal casinos, serves as an excellent setting for evaluating casino development and its impacts.
