SPECIAL EDITION: 30 YEARS OF GAMING IN ATLANTIC CITY, Part 2

This week, in a special edition of the Global Gaming Business Podcast the second in a series of four podcasts is presented, featuring people who played roles in the city over those three decades. In this edition of 30 Years of Gaming, we talk with Dennis Gomes, now head of Gomes-Cordish Gaming, but in those days he was an investigator for New Jersey's Division of Gaming Enforcement. Gomes tells a tale of intrigue during the probe of Resorts International in 1977. Next up is Frank J. "Pat" Dodd, a former state senator who was appointed to the Casino Control Commission in 1989. He explains how difficult it was to institute the reform of the agency. And finally, we speak with CCC Chairwoman Linda Kassekert about the debt she owes to her predecessors and why the New Jersey regulatory system is considered the best in the world.
