Recently, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement approved a temporary test of casino gaming in The Quarter, a shopping/dining area at the Tropicana Casino & Resort. The Tropicana expects gaming to commence in The Quarter in November.
This is the first time in Atlantic City history that gaming has been approved on the city side of Pacific Avenue.
“Over the years, Tropicana has always been home to groundbreaking entertainment options,” said Tropicana’s president and chief executive officer, Tony Rodio. “We are proud to once again lead the way by being first to offer gaming on the city side of Pacific Avenue along with all of the dining, shopping and nightlife options offered in The Quarter. My team and I are grateful to the DGE for their forward-thinking. Their approval will allow Tropicana to redefine Atlantic City excitement once again.”
The Tropicana will launch gaming with eleven slot machines by the Fiesta Plaza, located in The Quarter. If electronic tables games are approved by the Division of Gaming Enforcement, the Tropicana will seek to add those games to the location as well. Once the Division of Gaming Enforcement has fully approved the Tropicana’s gaming operations in The Quarter, the casino also plans to seek regulatory approval to expand its gaming operation further by adding additional slots, live table games and electronic table games throughout The Quarter.
