Atlantic City resort named "Casino of the Year"24 January 2012
ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- From new hotel rooms to a new 1920’s theme to provocative advertising campaigns and one-of a kind entertainment, the all new Resorts Casino Hotel was named the “Casino of the Year” by Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com out of all New Jersey and Pennsylvania casinos.
Reporter Chuck Darrow said in his article, “Co-owner-CEO Dennis Gomes and his small band of sleep-deprived execs achieved the most important victory of all: Making the oldest legal gambling den outside Nevada relevant again through a seemingly non-stop barrage of marketing and entertainment initiatives.”
“2011 was a whirlwind of a year,” said Dennis C. Gomes, owner, president and C.E.O. of Resorts Casino. “We came into Resorts with the goal of turning around a property that was in decline for a long time and our initiatives were designed to generate a new customer base and offer new amenities for Resorts loyal guests. The entire Resorts team came together in a way I have never quite experienced in this industry and although we still have a way to go, I couldn’t be prouder of our accomplishments. To be chosen as the Casino of the Year over properties like Sands Bethlehem, who was the runner-up and made large capital investments, is really an honor.”
In a short 12-month span, Dennis C. Gomes and his world-class team of executives have orchestrated a number of firsts, not only for Atlantic City but the world, creating a new atmosphere and culture at the all new Resorts Casino Hotel, a few of the 2011 highlights include:
