Skill-Based Gambling Coming to Hard Rock Atlantic City Casino
- June 13, 2017 By Riley Wilson -
Hard Rock International has recently submitted plans for the redevelopment of former casino resort Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.
These plans were presented to the gambling authorities of New Jersey revealing the ambitious goals Hard Rock has with the casino closed back in 2016.
The company presented the plans to expand gambling operations outside the designated casino area, bringing gaming and betting to resort’s restaurants and pools.
Players will have a wide variety of products and services at their disposal – from traditional slot machines and table games to latest innovative devices.
These devices include skill-based slot machines, which recently became available in Atlantic City, through Caesars Entertainment, and which are designed to increase the overall time a player spends on them.
The renovated casino will also organize fantasy sports contests, which were legalized four years ago and completely separated from traditional gambling.
Taking Gambling Outside
Hard Rock has officially requested permission to start providing games throughout the entire complex, not only in the main casino.
If the state grants the permission, visitors and guests will be able to enjoy the casino offer by the pool, in the restaurants and other areas of the resort. To take its offer to a higher level, Hard Rock plans to offer private gaming areas for VIP casino guests.
New Start For Old Casino
Hard Rock, which is from 2007 owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, bought the former Taj Mahal in March.
The company paid only $50 million for the complex whose construction cost over a billion dollars. The resort was built from 1983 to 1990 when it was open. After 26 years in service, Trump Taj Mahal was shutdown in October 2016.
If all goes according to plans, the resort will be relaunched next summer as Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, with Hard Rock promising to invest around half a billion dollars into the property in order to completely change its exterior and interior, giving the resort a rock’n’roll vibe that the brand is known for around the world.
