I thought I would mention that November 2012 was the first time that Pennsylvania ($55m) made more money on table games than New Jersey ($50m). Now New Jersey casinos were closed the first two days of the month, but the effect of the storm reached into the days when they first re-opened.

During the two preceding gaming weeks ended November 9, 2012 ( which includes the days the casinos were closed for Hurricane Sandy and a second severe
storm which impacted New Jersey and the mid-Atlantic region on November 7 ) casino win was down approximately 63% compared to the same two weeks of 2011.

If anyone is betting, don't bet against Trump Plaza. They have laid off most staff and you cannot get food or a beer after 11PM at a bar or restaurant. Even the $1 BJ table is not full. Rooms are priced like Fremont during the week.

The answer is Trump Plaza... As of very recent, the word in town is that it was purchased by the former CEO of Trump promperties and most recently an executive with Wynne, Mark Brown along with a financial backer.

I trust that he will know how to open a new casino in town... unlike the folks at Revel. Keep it sexy and simple. Cater to the players. Hot waitresses and staff. Brand it. Have cool bars to attract the right crowd. Killer poker room. Dont overpay executives that your buddies with and then bankrupt the joint like Donald Trump... 3 x that is.

Between this and the Atlantic Club takeover by PokerStars it looks like a close race to the finish.

Has the Trump Plaza's player's club card always been good at the Taj or is this something new? I ask because every time I walked by the Taj last weekend it was blaring from their loudspeakers.

Yeah the Trump One card had always been good at all 3 Trump properties....oh wait they sold the Marina to the GN. So now both the Taj and the Plaza. Oh wait the Plaza is going out of business any day. So just the Taj. But yes it's good at both properties. Just wanted to take a shot at the Donald. Even though he hasn't been directly involved with the properties for a while now.

You can use and accumulate points at both properties (I'm 100% sure comp dollars, almost positive tier points). On the other hand, your offers such as for rooms and match play are unique to each casino.

I have never played at Taj, but was able to get dinner there.

Yeah that's correct, I should have been more specific. I stay and play at the Taj often and get room/meals/freeplay. I never play at the Plaza. So no offers from there.
I could however use my comp dollars earned at the Taj at the Plaza.

Always? No. But they have been linked for at least 5 years now.

On a related note, I get email offers from Golden Nugget sent to the address tied to my original Trump Taj card. I had never been to the Trump Plaza.

Icahn stymies Trump Plaza purchase, saying the $20 million price was too cheap.
"The California development company that sought to buy Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino for $20 million announced Friday night that the sale has been delayed, creating even more uncertainty for Atlantic City痴 poorest-performing property.

展e are disappointed to announce that our acquisition of the Trump Plaza cannot be completed as planned at this time because Trump Entertainment has been unable to obtain a release of the mortgage held by their senior secured lender, the Meruelo Group said in a statement.

Trump痴 senior lender is billionaire investor Carl Icahn, who holds the mortgage on Trump Plaza even though he lost a highly publicized bankruptcy battle in 2010 for control of the Trump casinos. The bankruptcy judge ruled in favor of corporate bondholders supported by Donald Trump." acpress
