Island View’s proposed lease cuts port slice of gambling pie

The Island View Casino Resort in Gulfport could sign an amended lease with the state port that will allow it to build a second casino and pay the port 2 percent of gross gambling revenue that exceeds $170 million from its existing casino and the new one. The 5 percent rate Island View pays in the current lease will continue to apply to gross gambling revenue of more than $25 million to $170 million.
