Revel's new owner balks at licensing

The new owner of the former Revel casino in Atlantic City said recently that he won't begin reopening the property while state gambling regulators insist that he get a casino license.  Glenn Straub told the Associated Press that he should not have to go through the same costly, time-consuming licensing that other casino owners do because he is acting simply as a landlord to an outside company that would run the casino.  He said he plans to appeal the matter to the state Casino Control Commission.

5 A.C. casinos now could face a strike

Casino workers said Thursday that they will go on strike against five of the city's eight casinos on July 1 if a contract agreement is not reached by then.  Members of Local 54 of the Unite Here union voted to authorize a strike against Bally's, Caesars, Harrah's, and the Tropicana.  The union had already authorized a strike against the Trump Taj Mahal.  A spokesman said several thousand workers cast ballots, which were 96 percent in favor of a strike.  The union says workers made painful sacrifices that need to be reversed now that Atlantic City's casinos are regaining their financial footing.  Let's all hope the situation can be resolved before the big holiday weekend.

There is still time to book that summer casino party or a DJ for that big holiday barbecue.

A.C. casino revenue down

​Atlantic City's casinos saw their revenue decline slightly in May, down less than 1 percent compared with a year ago.  The eight casinos collectively won $219.8 million from gamblers, a decline of 0.6 percent compared with May 2015, a month with more weekend days.  Table games revenue was up 4.5 percent at the eight casinos, to $53.9 million.  Slot machine winnings were $149.3 million, down 4.9 percent from May 2015.  Only two of the eight casinos saw increases in May, led by the Borgata, whose nearly $65 million was up almost 16 percent.  Bally's was just barely up, by 0.2 percent, to 18.2 million.  Internet gambling continued to be a bright spot for New Jersey, increasing by 32.6 percent to 16.5 million.

Showboat to reopen

​The Showboat is reopening.  Well, sort of.  After closing and laying off 2,100 employees, the new owners are hiring 200 employees in an effort to get the property open again. A job fair was held this week, and 3,000 people, many former Showboat employees attended, seeking to once again find work.  A few restaurants will reopen, as will the hotel, but not the casino.  Hopefully, that will be the next step in Atlantic City's long recovery process. 

Of course, if you are looking for a casino experience, Casino Nights Live! is available to bring the casino to you.  We can set up just about anywhere, a private home, a church basement, under a tent in your backyard, even a boat on the Delaware.  Check out the web site, www.casinonightslive.com to see everything we offer.

Taj Mahal case rejected


The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a union challenge seeking to restore health and pension benefits for more than 1,000 workers at the Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City.  The justices let stand lower court rulings in favor of the former Trump Entertainment Resorts, now owned by investor Carl Icahn, who had threatened to shut down the casino if the court restored benefits.  The company filed for bankruptcy protection in 2014 and a federal bankruptcy judge imposed cost savings sought by the company.  They included terminating health insurance and pension benefits for unionized workers.

Well, the summer is upon us.  Looking for a rockin' DJ for your summer party?  At Casino Nights Live!, we have several on staff that will keep your event as hot as the summer sun.  Check us out at www.casinonightslive.com.
