Paul Juliano and Phil Juliano

When the Twin Rivers company of Rhode Island bought Bally’s Atlantic City in April 2020, it changed the entire company. Already a fast-growing gaming company, the purchase of Bally’s, and a few months later, the brand Bally’s, it gave Twin Rivers classic gaming identity and since then the company has rebranded all of its casinos. Helping to make that happen are the father-son team of Phil Juliano, Bally’s executive vice president, casino operations and chief marketing officer, and Paul Juliano, the senior vice president of operations. While the Bally’s Atlantic City buy was important, the property required a complete renovation, something that Phil says will happen by Memorial Day. Paul, meanwhile, outlines the changes in Atlantic City and across the Bally’s portfolio of properties. They spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros via Zoom in late February.

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
