Enjoy Outdoor Gambling at the Golden Nugget Casino
Over the last few years the casinos in Atlantic City have been coming up with some novel ways of attracting customers away from neighbouring states’ casinos.
The Golden Nugget casino’s latest scheme is to offer its patrons outdoor gambling. The casino recently received permission from the state Division of Gaming Enforcement to move three blackjack tables to its outdoor deck.
According to Tom Pohlman, the casino’s executive vice president and general manager, the outdoor games debuted just before Labor Day and were more popular than expected. He said that “It’s the only place in Atlantic City where you can play blackjack, listen to live entertainment, look out at the beautiful Atlantic City skyline and look out over the water.”
As casinos continue to battle with competition they have begun expanding gambling into new areas, for instance it is not possible to gamble at bars, pools and shopping areas. The Tropicana Casino and Resort was the first to do this when it moved some slot machines into the retail shopping centre opposite the casino.
The Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort has put table games, such as blackjack, into its Ego Bar & Lounge while the Harrah Resort Atlantic City has moved tables into its swimming pool area.
