Entertainment keeps casino patrons coming, despite the economy
The economy has taken some of the steam out of ultra-dining in the casino. In response to consumer demand, chefs like Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck are trimming the fat-on both sides of the menu.
This week, the Global Gaming Business Podcast features an encore interview with John Pasqualoni, the new president of Resorts Atlantic City, on his property and the city's future.The return of John Pasqualoni to Atlantic City, where he started his career, took many years. A slot executive for most of his career, he left the Trump organization in the 1990s to join Foxwoods in Connecticut, where he spent many years running one of the most profitable slot floors in the world. Later, he joined the Seneca Gaming Corp., and became its president in 2005. He was appointed to lead Resorts in August, taking over a struggling property owned by Colony Capital's subsidiary, Resorts International. He spoke with Atlantic City Casino Connection Managing Editor Marjorie Preston in his offices at Resorts in September.
