    Happy 16th Anniversary to Us!

    The Isle of Capri®Lula is proud to celebrate our Sweet 16 birthday this year! A lot has changed in the past few years, but gaming is still a top priority for our staff and loyal patrons. Celebrate this 16th anniversary on Monday, July 11 by trying out some of our hottest games, from video poker to traditional blackjack. You never know what you might win!

    Past

    Gaming doesn't have to be limited to desert or beachfront locations. Back in 1991, the legendary Bernie Goldstein thought that gaming should also be part of the rivers in the Southern region of the United States. Born out of this idea was riverboat gaming. In fact, Mr. Goldstein became the grandfather of this concept as multiple boats took to the Mississippi River in search of floating treasure. You simply needed to hop on board, place your bet and enjoy the lulling comfort of a boating adventure. Anyone could hop aboard these boats, which allowed tourists and locals alike to gain more experience with the gaming fun.

    In 1992, the Isle of Capri® graced the land in Biloxi, Mississippi, where it grew almost exponentially in popularity. The word slowly spread that Biloxi was where you wanted to be for your table games and slots excitement. Gulfport and Kansas City jumped into the gaming spirit too, but you can't leave out the beautiful Lula property, either. After 16 years, the Isle of Capri® Lula casino is going strong with exciting opportunities nearly every day.
