Resorts Spending $60 Million to Compete in A.C.

Resorts Casino Hotel plans to spend $60 million in the first half of 2013 on renovations and an expansion designed to help it become more of a player in the Atlantic City gambling market.

In addition to the $35 million Jimmy Buffett-themed Margaritaville entertainment complex, Resorts is also renovating hotel rooms, re-doing bathrooms, adding a food court and two new VIP players’ clubs, and laying down new carpet on the casino floor.

Resorts has hired former Tropicana boss Mark Giannantonio (Gee-ann-ann-TONE’-ee-oh) as its new president.

Gary Van Hettinga, who has been running the casino for the Mohegan Indian tribe under a management agreement, says he’ll split his time between Atlantic City and Mohegan properties in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. He says Resorts was just about breaking even before Superstorm Sandy hit.
