Over the past 15 years, the entertainment scene in northwest Mississippi changed rapidly. Gaming has replaced cotton as the biggest money maker. Golf and gambling -- not fishing and hunting -- rank as the most popular recreational activities. Ten million visitors a year visit the area around Tunica, making it a modern-day hotbed.
