Resorts Opens New Players Club Lounges
Resorts Casino Hotel was the first casino to open in Atlantic City because it was able to build on an existing structure, the elegant Haddon Hall. That turn-of-the-century structure also made it ideal for the art deco, 1920s feel the late Dennis Gomes and co-owner Morris Bailey brought when they purchased the property in December 2010 and re-branded it with a theme that tied into the hit HBO TV series Boardwalk Empire.
Partially owned and run by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority since August 2012, Resorts on January 10 opened two players club lounges, the Epic and Paramount, that combine the elegant feel of a club Boardwalk Empire’s Nucky Thompson would appreciate but with the modern touches — like flat screen TVs — that modern casino patrons will enjoy.
At a press night Wednesday, Jan. 23, Resorts new president and CEO Mark Giannantonio showed off the new space that features a buffet for players at the Paramount Card level in the Paramount Lounge. On this night that buffet included a prime rib station, shrimp on a stick, a nice salad selection, cold meats and cheeses, fruit, and even sugar free cheesecake bites.

Giannantonio also announced that the Margaritaville expansion of the casino was going smoothly and that Resorts would be opening a food court. “Our owners, Morris Bailey and Mohegan Sun, are working hard to create an atmosphere at Resorts that is going to be fun and exciting. We know that Margaritaville will attract many Parrotheads and once it is fully executed, it’s going to be a hit right out of the gate.”
