"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
Instead, he leased the casino to a number of operators who had previous experience, like Bernie Einstoss, Frank Grannis, Leo Kind, and Lou Wertheimer, who's brother was running the Riverside. According to the book, Mob City: Reno , the Wertheimer's were skimming and sharing their profits with the likes of Meyer Lansky and the Detroit Partnership. Charles wasn't getting rich on his lease, but the hotel was full most of the time. Charles battled through a succession of casino managers and owners, eventually taking-over control of the casino himself in the late1960's. By that time he also owned the concessions at the Reno airport and owned other real estate in town. While the Mapes plugged along, Charles purchase a building at 211 North Virginia Street and opened the Money Tree in 1969 with his sister, Gloria.

After exploring every other viable alternative, we have come to the difficult but necessary conclusion to close Harrahs Tunica in an effort to appropriately position our business for the current market opportunity and ensure the long-term viability of our remaining operations in the vicinity, said John Payne, President of Central Markets and Partnership Development. The company is actively shopping the casino but has not yet found any buyers. The 1,360-room resort was by far the largest of the three properties Caesars operates in Tunica. The other properties are the 510-room Horseshoe Casino Tunica and 130-room Tunica Roadhouse. Harrahs currently employs 1,300 people and although the company has vowed to try and reassign them, many will have to relocate or look elsewhere for jobs.

The company said employees will have preference for openings at those operations and at Caesar's properties under development in Las Vegas. The closing comes after years of relentless decline in gambling revenue in the Tunica area, brought on by increased competition and less spending because of the recession. Two gambling operations in Arkansas continue to grow rapidly, and Tunica's market historically stretched into areas of Oklahoma and Missouri that now have their own casinos. Spokesman Gary Thompson says Harrah's is losing money and the taxes on the property are "onerous." "What we do have are a number of loyal players in the market, but not enough to support three properties," Thompson told The Associated Press. The company said it would work with local authorities to find a new use for the building.
