Borgata Casino showed why they are the leader in Atlantic City gaming. This was evident this week with a article from Calvin Ayre that they are looking for another partner in the online gaming sector. They are presently aligned with Bwin Party. This news comes on the heels of proposed $50 million makeover which includes an ambitious outdoor pool complex, gigantic nightclub, an upscale eatery , casual food court and other refurbishments throughout the resort. While most leaders rest on their laurels, Borgata takes the steps to stay ahead of the pack thru property reinvestment and brand stimulation.
A similar announcement came from Tropicana Atlantic City, which plans to invest $25 million in improvements throughout the property. Planned enhancements include renovations to 500 rooms in the Havana Tower incorporating new carpeting, spa-like bathrooms with walk-in showers, textured wall coverings and modern art.
"These renovations are not only attractive upgrades for Tropicana's guests, they are creating new employment opportunities at a crucial time in Atlantic City," said Tony Rodio, president and CEO of Tropicana Entertainment in a statement.
There are also plans to refresh the South Tower casino to match the North Tower's upscale feel and decor. Other casino improvements will be enhancements to the Asian gaming room Jade Palace as well as an new high-limit slot area. If I was going to stay in Atlantic City, I know my first two choices.

gracious in defeat with praise for her opponent. When you are use to winning you learn that a level of humility is part of the terrain.
