"It is a privilege to be a part of the creation of gaming in Atlantic City, taking it from a small gambling town in 1978 to what it is today - a multi-faceted industry providing countless visitors with first-class retail, dining and entertainment experiences.

As a Mohegan Sun property, Resorts Casino Hotel has been under the successful management of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment since 2012, establishing a strategic partnership with Resorts owner Morris Bailey and one of the top casino operators in the country. Since its inception, this partnership continues to position the brand as a leader in Atlantic City today.
Over the past five years, Resorts has completed more than $100 million in renovations to reposition and transform the property into a vibrant destination with offerings beyond casino gaming. Major expansion milestones include:
The $35 million Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville and Landshark Bar & Grill Entertainment Complex, which opened in May 2013
The July 2014 opening of Quickbites Food Court
A first-of-its-kind iGaming Lounge solely dedicated to the online gaming experience, which launched in April 2015
A completely remodeled casino floor adding over 800 new slot machines
A $5 million Conference Center, which opened in August 2015, adding 12,000-square-feet of meeting and event space to Resorts, featuring state-of-the-art technology with 90" LED 1080P monitors in every conference room and the ability for up to 500 meeting attendees to wirelessly connect simultaneously
Additionally, this spring, Resorts Casino Hotel will complete the final phase of its $25 million room renovation featuring a completely revamped Ocean Tower with new bathrooms, furniture, windows and beautiful decor throughout. These latest enhancements contribute to the brand's emergence as a frontrunner in Atlantic City and continue providing visitors near and far with best-in-class accommodations with every visit.
