The New Jersey casino will be renovating hotel rooms, re-carpeting the casino floor, adding a food court and two new VIP Players’ Clubs, and will also be adding a new $35 million Jimmy Buffett-themed Margaritaville entertainment complex. The complex will include the Landshark Bar & Grill, the It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere bar, and a Buffett-themed slots area.
“We intend to really wow our customers,” said Mark Giannantonio, the new president of Resorts. “This is a really big upgrade.”
The Margaritaville project faced a slight delay due to Hurricane Sandy, but it is still expected to open by Memorial Day weekend.
Resorts brought in $121.3 million from gamblers in the first 11 months of 2012, ranking it eighth out of Atlantic City’s 12 casinos.
