Road Near Resorts Named for Late Co-Owner Gomes

Atlantic City honored Dennis Gomes, the late co-owner of Resorts Casino Hotel, by naming the street in front of the casino in his honor.At Friday’s ceremony, Mayor Lorenzo Langford unveiled a sign renaming a portion of North Carolina Avenue as “Dennis C. Gomes Avenue.”

Gomes died in February of complications from kidney dialysis. He and partner Morris Bailey bought Resorts in 2010 and saved the struggling casino from closing.

Gomes was a former mob-busting investigator in Las Vegas whose discovery of a theft ring there was chronicled in the film “Casino.”

But he was perhaps best known for the zany promotions he came up with, including pitting a chicken against casino customers in games of tic-tac-toe, and hiring a Barack Obama look and sound-alike to tout a casino.
