BILOXI, Mississippi – As reported by the Mississippi Clarion-Ledger: "Eighty-one slot machines and a restaurant that features Asian Cajun crawfish as its signature dish attracted a steady stream of customers to Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel in Biloxi on Wednesday, its first day to be open after Hurricane Katrina.

"'We've had a lot of regular customers and former employees stop by,' said Susan Varnes, chief operating officer at Treasure Bay.

"…Larry Gregory, executive director of the Mississippi Gaming Commission, said Treasure Bay's history as an established Gulf Coast casino merited giving the go-ahead for it to reopen with just 81 slots.
