ATLANTIC CITY An Atlantic City casino paid $5.3 million to a gambler weeks after another high roller won $5.8 million at the same casino.

Tropicana Casino and Resort CEO Tony Rodio told The Press of Atlantic City the unidentified gambler won most of the cash during a six-hour streak playing craps Wednesday. He also won at blackjack and mini-baccarat.

Rodio says the player left a $150,000-plus tip, which was divided up among the Tropicana table games dealers.

Rodio declined to name the player. However, Rodio says it was not Don Johnson. The Bensalem, Pa., resident won nearly $6 million during a hot streak at the Trop in March and April.

Rodio told the newspaper Johnson and the winning craps player will be invited back for more high-stakes gambling.
