Think back two years ago and say that you had this favorite uncle who asks you what you would like for Christmas and since he already knows full well that you are a gambler, he already has the most fun casino ready to roll out with you in mind - even before you answered. That man is Mr. Dennis Gomes and his gift for us, is the new Resorts Casino in Atlantic City. Thanks to his friend, Uncle Bailey, they bought a classic junker for not much more than a song and turned her into the Casino of the Year 2011. He starts by polishing clean the Art Deco gaming floor. He then hands us the out-sized bus package which is a generous $41 in slot play plus a voucher for a free buffet that opens all seven days serving unlimited crab legs. He provides us with the hottest cocktail waitresses and dressed them in the scandalous fashion of roaring Twenties. And along with the easy money, the easy boozing, and the Naked Circus; he offers us a couple full-pay JOBs, and many more full-pay Bonus Pokers on IGT Game King 25 cent coin machines. Yes, he did it all for us in a time when Uncle Trump left behind only his name on the wall and when Uncle Wynn has long since left town vowing never to return. Gomes saves these full-pay video poker games in a world where 8-5 becomes the new standard payout on 25 cents JOB. For all you've done - thanks for the fun filled year, Uncle Gomes. And oh how I miss that smoking hot hostess on Beat the Chick tic-tac-toe game...
This place improves every year
A fun, old school casino on Fremont Street. The video poker has the best selection of quarter and up for me and nickel and down for the wife. The real gem for me is the full pay DDB with progressives on all of the four of a kinds. I can sit at the bar for hours, playing the game, enjoying a nice cigar and drinking some fine micro brews. Hugo's Cellar is a classic, fine dining restaurant where everything is prepared to perfection. The rooms are a bit small and dated, but they are clean. Honestly, we just use the room to sleep so a three bedroom, two story suite with a butler is wasted on us.
Played at the Borgata full pay (9/6) Jacks or Better and the paybacks were awesome. For me it was about 110%. Played for hours on two machines. Walked away with $655.00 . Plus the Hotel is the best. Customer service is better than any other hotel I've stayed at in AC !
