Golden Nugget Atlantic City Becomes First NJ Casino To Offer Outdoor Gambling
"It's the only place in Atlantic City where you can play blackjack, listen to live entertainment, look out at the beautiful Atlantic City skyline, and look out over the
water," said Tom Pohlman, the Golden Nugget's executive vice president and general manager.
In order to help fight competition from Pennsylvania casinos, Atlantic City casinos have also recently expanded gaming into bars and shopping areas.
The Golden Nugget Atlantic City has become
the first New Jersey casino to allow outdoor gambling.
Recently, the state Division of Gaming Enforcement granted the casino permission to move three blackjack tables onto its outdoor deck. The outdoor games made their debut just before Labor Day weekend and casino officials say they were more popular than had been expected.
