Judge to rule this week on stay of decision striking casino PILOT amendments

The state has filed an appeal in the case challenging the August decision striking down changes to a law that would give the city's casinos millions of dollars in tax breaks. The judge will rule by Friday on the state's request for a stay of his August ruling. The amendments removed internet gaming and online sports betting revenues from calculations of gross gaming revenue. They also protected smaller casinos like Bally's Atlantic City, Golden Nugget Atlantic and Resorts Casino Hotel from closure. Some analysts believe the casinos could have survived without the additional tax break. It is not possible to do the analysis in time for Nov. 1 tax payments to be made.

Last-minute deal averts casino strike in Atlantic City

The main union for Atlantic City casino workers reached agreements on new contracts with four casinos on Thursday. The deals avoid a possible strike on the Fourth of July weekend. A Sunday strike deadline remains against the Hard Rock casino. Union president calls it the best contract they've ever had. It's not yet clear what the exact amount is. The settlements come at a crucial time for the casino industry. They have won $1.8 billion over the first five months of this year. That's up more than 49% from the same period in 2019. In 2016, the union rejected a proposal by billionaire Carl Icahn to operate without health care and pension benefits at the Trump Taj Mahal casino, which was later sold to Hard Rommate International.

GUEST COLUMN: It's time to dissolve the casino PILOT bill, not make changes

It's time to dissolve the Casino PILOT bill, not make changes. Online gambling needs to support the constitutional goal of redeveloping Atlantic City. In-person gambling revenues are down.

Trump Plaza Hotel And Casino To Be Impoded Wednesday At 9 A.M.

Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City will be destroyed Wednesday at 9 a.m. The hotel was once owned by Donald Trump. It will meet its inglorious end after a series of events. The mayor of Atlantic city disparaged Trump, which led to a charitable auction that would have had the winner literally press the button to blow up the casino. Billionaire developer Carl Icahn's lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to the auction house, and Ichan himself donated $175,000 to Atlantic County Boys & Girls Club. Bette Midler tweeted that she was going to pay for the viewing rights of the implosion.
