Gomes and co-owner Morris Bailey bought the struggling casino in 2010 and saved it from shutting down.

Gomes is perhaps best known for the string of unusual promotions he used to generate business for casinos. They included a tic-tac-toe-playing chicken, a Barack Obama look-and-sound-alike, and billboards featuring a dancer’s naked rear end, and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

The chips will go into use later this year.
