Golden Moon attracts NCAA fans
Sports fans are rushing to Golden Moon Casino to place their NCAA Tournament bets.
The casino has been expecting a huge turnout for the tournament weekend, especially with its new mobile betting app.
Along with the Sportsbook Bar at the Golden Moon, Pearl River Resort also has a special overflow room, with big screens included, in case the bar fills up.
Ken Krautter of Dallas, Tex., and his friends usually go to Las Vegas, for this tournament. Instead, they came to the Pearl River Resort. He says he's happy he came to Mississippi.
"It's great. The folks are very hospitable and very accommodating," said Krautter. "And everything is working well with the new Sportsbook. We're all real happy with it."
This is the first tournament that both Ole Miss and Mississippi State have played in since sports betting began in the state.
