Tunica Resorts, still known locally by some as Robinsonville, is in extreme northwestern Mississippi, nestled along the Mississippi River.
The town's economy changed in the early 1990s from a farming economy to that fueled largely by the roll of dice and pull of slot machines, as the town now plays host to eight casinos, several of which have hotels. The town name stuck largely for marketing purposes—tying it to better-known Tunica was better for business.
