Palace Casino Resort is proud to be the recipient of a Certificate of Appreciation from the Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition of Harrison County. The coalition recognized the resort for leading the way on the Mississippi Gulf Coast as the first and only 100% smoke free casino resort. The certificate was presented to Keith Crosby, General Manager, in appreciation for providing a smoke free environment for the resort’s employees and guests.
The Palace became 100% smoke free in June 2011 after completing an expansion and renovation of the property. The resort employs nearly 700 associates, and the hotel features 236 guest rooms and suites overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and Biloxi Back Bay. The casino offers over 850 slot machines and a spacious table games pit. Palace Casino Resort has five restaurants, including the award-winning Mignon’s Steaks & Seafood, Palace Buffet, STACKED Grill, Palace Café & Bakery and CONTACT Lounge & Sports Bar. The resort also features PURE the Palace Spa and The Preserve Golf Club, designed by Jerry Pate.
“Going 100% smoke free was the right thing to do. It allows us to offer a healthier, cleaner and more enjoyable environment for our associates and guests,” said Crosby. “We’re proud to be a leader in our market.”
The Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition of Harrison County is one of 34 coalitions serving all 82 Mississippi counties. The grassroots groups work to reduce tobacco-related disease and death by educating youth about the dangers of tobacco, encouraging communities to implement smoke free ordinances and promoting tobacco cessation services.
