Eldorado Resorts Wants Permanent License for Tropicana

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

New Jersey land casino Tropicana Atlantic City operator Eldorado Resorts is seeking a permanent gaming license for the property, and has filed a request that's set to be reviewed by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission.

The group paid $1.85 billion to purchase the Tropicana, and they've been operating the casino using an interim license. The company is now looking to be a permanent fixture on the boardwalk. The casino was founded in 1981 and has gone through many different owners. The resort features a full casino, IMAX movie theater, shopping area, spa, restaurants, and 2,400 room hotel.

It's extremely likely that Eldorado will be granted a license, as they've been working without event since they got the interim license. Still, it'll be good to see a hard stake in the ground along the boardwalk, which has seen properties close (and a few re-open) in recent years.
