Resort Casino Hotel Announces Multi Million Dollar Multi-Faced Expansion and Renovation

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – December 01, 2014 – Resorts Casino Hotel (“Resorts”), the first casino to open in Atlantic City and a property managed by Mohegan Gaming Advisors, today announced a $9.4 million multi-faceted expansion of its convention space that will bring an additional 12,000 square feet of event space, including 11 new conference rooms. This expansion is part of the hotel’s long-term property reinvestment plan, following the recent $35 million Jimmy Buffet-themed Margaritaville and nearly $70 million expansion and renovation of Resorts under Morris Bailey’s ownership.

“This conference center expansion is the latest example of the company’s reinvestment in the property and Atlantic City as a whole as we continue to strategize ways to revive and turnaround this market,” said Morris Bailey, Owner of Resorts. “From the growing demand for additional conference space from a new niche audience to the increasing popularity of Margaritaville, Resorts is showing a positive return on investment as a successful destination location on the East Coast.”

Construction is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2015 and slated to be completed in the summer of 2015 with18 meeting rooms, three ballrooms and a multi-purpose showroom on one floor which provides easy access and customer convenience for the convention and trade show business. Additionally, the expansion project will include hotel bathroom renovations in the Ocean Tower.

“This expansion plan furthers the repositioning of Resorts as the company continues to make smart investments that will transform the property into a more vibrant, profitable destination with offerings beyond casino gambling,” said Mark Giannantonio, president and CEO of Resorts Casino Hotel. “As the only Casino Hotel in Atlantic City that boasts a dramatic floor to ceiling ocean view ballroom and Landshark Bar & Grill, a year-round beach event facility, we’ve already seen success in our meetings and convention business, with bookings up 46 percent over 2013. We’re thrilled to leverage that success and build upon it with this expansion.”

When the renovation is complete, Resorts, along with Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, will have more than 64,000 square feet of meeting & event space consisting of 27 conference and event rooms accommodating from 40 up to 1,350 guests.

To book a meeting or event call (609) 340-7850.

Chubby Checker 55th Anniversary of The Twist January 17, 2015

Chubby Checker

Chubby Checker Celebrates the 55th Anniversary of the Twist
at Resorts Casino Hotel, January 17, 2015

(Atlantic City, NJ) November 8, 2014 – Come on baby, let’s do the twist with Chubby Checker & The Wildcats on Saturday, January 17 at 9PM in Resorts Superstar Theater.
In 2 minutes & 42 Seconds, Chubby Checker revolutionized popular Culture and changed
the music business forever. When he appeared on American Bandstand in 1960 and
performed “The Twist,” it was the dawn of a new era in Rock and Roll. Dancing apart to
the beat was born and teenagers found a new way to express themselves.

Chubby’s Dance Style has extended from Woodstock, through Disco to the present day. He stands alone as a one of a kind Rock Icon, who has had 36 Hit Records, is the only artist to have a single go to # 1 Twice, and according to Billboard, has the # 1 Single for the whole Decade of the 60’s. Chubby was awarded the first Platinum Single, the first Rock Grammy and has sold an astounding 250,000,000 records over the years. That’s why Dick Clark has said: “The three most important things that ever happened in the music industry are Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and Chubby Checker.”

Chubby Checker is the son of a tobacco farmer from Spring Gulley, SC. His mother
moved the family to Philadelphia when he was a young boy. It was here on South Street,
in Tony Anastazi’s Produce Store, that he became a local celebrity by doing impressions
of Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis. His first manager, Henry Colt brought him
to the attention of Kal Mann, who signed him to Cameo-Parkway Records. It was Dick
Clark’s wife, Bobbie, who came up with the name Checker to go with his childhood nick
name Chubby – a reference to the similarity between him and Fats Domino.

Chubby’s first single, “The Class” was a vehicle for his musical impressions and was included in  Dick Clark’s ’58 Christmas card. That record was his first hit and reached #38 in Billboard.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, November 22 are priced at $40, $35, $30 and are available for purchase at Resorts’ Box Office, at ticketmaster.com or by calling 1.800.745.3000.

Pro Surfer Dean “Jersey Devil” Randazzo Cancer Foundation Presents 6th Annual Freeze for a Cause fundraiser at Resorts, February 28

(Atlantic City, NJ) February 13, 2015 – The beach at Resorts Casino Hotel will come alive with excitement as spectators gather to watch dozens of intrepid surfers dive into the icy Atlantic Ocean in the 6th annual Freeze for a Cause. The event takes place Saturday, February 28, 2015, with proceeds benefitting The Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation.

“We raised more than $10,000 last year thanks to the 70 surfers at Jersey Devil Surf beach and twice as many people who attended the after party at Margaritaville at Resorts Hotel Casino,” said Dean “Jersey Devil” Randazzo, New Jersey’s most successful professional surfer.

At the height of his pro-surfing career, Randazzo was stricken with cancer and has been battling the disease ever since. He formed The Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation in 2001, the year he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease, and has become an avid spokesperson for cancer awareness and research. His foundation has raised well over $500,000 through annual fundraising events. His personal battle with cancer has fueled an amazing comeback and serves as an inspiration for thousands. 

Freeze for a Cause generates funds through surfer registrations, sponsorships and an after party. Competitions will begin at 10 a.m. at North Carolina Avenue beach in front of Resorts. Divisions are offered for: Junior Men’s – 18 years and younger; Men’s – 19-35 years old; Grand Master’s – 36 years and older; Women’s, Longboard and Stand-Up Paddleboard. There is mandatory check-in for surfers from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Registration for the first division is $30 online and $40 the day of the event. Additional divisions are $15 each. Contestants will receive an event T-shirt with their entry, after party tickets and prizes.

After a frosty day on the beach, surfers and spectators are invited to refuel with a fun-filled after party at Margaritaville beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets, which are $25 per person, can be purchased at the door. Attendees will enjoy live music by The Danbees, a group called “The coolest young rock band” by VNDL magazine.

Resorts Casino Hotel posts exceptional second quarter including triple digit increase in earnings

(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) – Resorts Casino Hotel released their second quarter earnings report noting a 244% increase to their earnings year over year. Additionally, Resorts noted a nearly 12% increase to hotel occupancy and a 40% jump in food revenues.

“We are very encouraged by the Q2 earnings report,” said Morris Bailey, Owner of Resorts. “The success of not only this property, but of Atlantic City – the town I grew up in – is of top importance to me. The horizon is bright at Resorts and I foresee a much healthier Atlantic City in the future as our city continues to develop into a world class regional destination.”

Mark Giannantonio, President & CEO of Resorts Casino Hotel added, “All of the hard work from our dedicated team members, combined with management expertise of the Mohegan Gaming Advisors, as well as the completion of a major expansion featuring new dining and entertainment, are really starting to pay off.”

In 2013, Resorts completed a $70 million renovation throughout the entire casino to reposition the property for future success within the competitive Atlantic City market. Most notably, the enhancements included the all new Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville entertainment complex featuring the Margaritaville Restaurants, LandShark Bar & Grill, 5 O’Clock Somewhere Casino Bar, Margaritaville Coffee Shop, two retail shops and new slot and table gaming areas.

Additional renovations were made to hotel rooms, the Boardwalk façade, player lounges, casino floor reconfigurations, a remodeled Ballroom for events and trade shows, the addition of an all new high-limit slot area, upgraded Wi-Fi service and seven new retail shops! Most recently, the casino also opened the Quick Bites food court featuring Five new eateries.

“We continue to look towards the bright horizon ahead as we move towards the next phase of Resorts with online gaming,” Giannantonio added.

Resorts recently launched a free online gaming site for guests 21 and over. ResortsCasino.com, created by Sportech-NYX Gaming LLC (SNG), currently features nearly 30 slot games exclusive to Resorts Casino Hotel. The casino also anticipates launching their next phase of the website which will include a variety of table games such as roulette, blackjack and more.

About Resorts Casino Hotel

The resort that brought gaming to Atlantic City in 1978, Resorts Casino Hotel is at the top of its game today, offering world-class casino action in a relaxed environment that keeps the focus on fun.  Resorts Casino Hotel made history as the first American casino outside of Nevada and celebrated its 35th anniversary in May 2013 with a new milestone: the opening of a $35-million Margaritaville casino and entertainment complex that includes, among other attractions, the only beach bar on the Atlantic City sand.

Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority assumed management of Resorts Casino Hotel in Fall 2012 – a move that has set the stage for its return as the most exciting gaming destination in Atlantic City. Boasting a prime location spanning 11 acres at the northern end of the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk, the resort features 942 guest rooms and suites in two hotel towers, an 80,000-square-foot casino, two theaters, six restaurants, two VIP slot and table player lounges, a casino bar, indoor-outdoor swimming pool,  health club and spa, salon, and retail shops. Its 39,000 square feet of sophisticated meeting space includes seven meeting rooms and a 13,000-square-foot ballroom.  For more information on Resorts Casino Hotel visit www.resortsac.com or follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/resortscasinoor on Facebook at www.facebook.com/resortscasino
