Family Trip To Gold Strike Casino

Gold Strike Casino Resort 
1010 Casino Center Dr 
Robinsonville, MS 38664

This past weekend my husband and brother played in the WSOP circuit event in Tunica. To make a long story short, my husband got in through a satellite event Friday, played the first round Saturday, knocked out day two (Sunday), however, we had secured our room @ the Gold Strike for an additional night in case he stayed in the event.

He came back to the room after having his aces cracked and we took my Mom to lunch, sightseeing and played a few games, during this time the room was cleaned. I know the jewelry was in the room before it was cleaned as I saw the boxes when I was packing and my husband wore them Friday and Saturday in the  event. When we returned we finished packing and checked out.

Did not realize until we were back home Sunday night unpacking that his jewelry is missing. We called hotel security and a locked search was performed, NO JEWELRY! Called lost and found and the next morning the police department. We drove all the way back to Tunica yesterday to make a police report. Both pieces of jewelry are gifts from me to my husband and have sentimental value. The bracelet is sterling and engraved, the ring is a diamond and gold horseshoe ring.

I feel devastated; The ring is the nicest gift I've ever purchased for my husband and it is a Christmas gift from about ten years ago as a thank you for all the help and support he has given in helping take care of my Mom. He works very hard and has helped me take care of my chronically ill Mother for many years. We have been going to MGM properties for nearly 12 years and spent our honeymoon at MGM Grand in 2000. This situation breaks my heart in many ways.

To be fair, here are the positives:

Hotel Decor very nice
Room Decor very nice, bathrooms could use updating
Bed Coverings, nice
Personnel, friendly
Restaurants, Great
Casino, Nice but a bit crowded
Slot Promotions, Players club Personnel, nice, friendly
Grounds/Lobby, beautiful, well kept

The hotel could be a beautiful place to vacation so long as you do not leave valuables in your room.  Gold Strike has deals nearly every week on their website and the prices are very low for quality of the hotel.  If you play poker or the slots and have a players club you will receive offers through email and mail. 

 I will update this story when we hear more from the local police and security personnel @ Gold Strike.
