Here’s what you need to know!

More Atlantic City Casino Jobs are Becoming Available Right Now

Atlantic City has been one of the country’s top casino destinations for decades. In 2020, this city was badly affected by the mass casino shutdowns and subsequent drop in tourism. Things have improved throughout 2021, however, and many of the casino operators are seeing major surges in revenue.

It now appears that several of the most popular casino-resorts are now looking for more employees. That includes the Borgata and Hard Rock Casino Atlantic City. These two properties recently held job fairs in the hope of attracting qualified employees. Hard Rock Casino President Joe Lupo spoke about this situation to the media this week.

“We’ve been looking for people all summer long,” Lupo said. “We’re looking at a strong fall ahead with some conventions and live entertainment coming back, so we’re looking to continue providing some jobs to the local community. A lot of the college kids have gone back to school, so it’s not uncommon here in the Atlantic City market for the fall to take a different approach without the seasonal help.”

More Atlantic City casino jobs are becoming available every week. Both the Borgata and Hard Rock Casino seem determined to bring in more employees. It’s not easy right now, particularly as cases of Covid-19 begin to increase around the country.

Casinos have seen solid earnings throughout the year. What do the next four months have in store for this industry?

US Casino Revenue May Begin to Decline Over the Fall Months

The events that began to unfold in 2020 proved that the US casino industry is a fragile one. Intense health regulations can essentially cripple casino companies. Some are fearful that a new wave of these types of regulations could be around the corner.

Rates of Covid-19 have been declining throughout much of 2021. Unfortunately, new variants have caused yet another spike in many areas of the country. Various health officials are now once again recommending similar health measures to the ones seen last year.

This is causing concern amongst US casino operators. Some analysts are beginning to predict a decrease in casino revenue over the fall months. This is almost a guarantee if casino hubs such as Las Vegas begin ordering capacity limits and more specific health rules for guests inside casinos.

It’s a difficult situation. Various state officials need to weigh public safety while attempting to keep businesses that cater to large groups of people operational. For now, tourism rates into major casino destinations appear to be holding steady.

Not all gambling companies are anticipating revenue declines over the next few months.

Sports Betting Revenue is Expected to Surge Soon

The entire US gaming industry has been posting impressive figures this year. Certain casinos have hit all-time revenue records this year. Sports betting companies have also seen huge surges in their monthly revenue figures.

July proved to be a poor month for the US sports betting industry. Several states with large sports gambling industries reported large decreases in their revenue figures. Most analysts expect to see things turn around over the next few months.

Much of this is due to the start of the 2021/2022 NFL season. The American Gaming Association anticipates 45 million Americans to bet on the season at least once. Sports betting revenue is expected to surpass $12 billion thanks to football betting.

This football season is now officially underway. We’ll be sure to continue reporting on sports betting revenue figures around the US.

Judge Orders Ex-Borgata Executive to Return Mobile Phone

Borgata Hotel-Casino
Borgata Casino got a shot in the arm from Lady Justice last Thursday as a federal judge in Nevada ordered a former Borgata casino executive, among others, to return a company-issued mobile phone which contained valuable information on Borgata’s top players and highest rollers.

Aside from instructing the former Borgata exec to return the cell phone, U.S. judge Gloria Navarro also issued a temporary restraining order preventing the two former executives who left Borgata this summer to work for the Ocean Casino Resort from contacting any past, present, or prospective clients of the Borgata Casino. Navarro also ordered the two former Borgata executives not to share trade secrets or confidential information to their new employers.

Poaching Accusation

However, the judge did not order the two executives removed from their jobs at Ocean Casino despite violating unfair competition laws and agreements. In not terminating the two, Navarro reasoned that the plaintiff did not present evidence that proved Ocean knew that the two were using Borgata trade secrets in their current employment.

Last month, Borgata Casino accused Ocean Casino of “poaching” six former executives in what it called an “attempt to cripple “ it by using trade secrets and sensitive information about its top clients. Borgata proceeded to filing a lawsuit after it asserted that the hiring of their former officers violated New Jersey’s unfair competition laws.

Attempt To Cripple Borgata

The case centered on William Callahan and Kelly Ashman Burke, who worked with Borgata’s top clients, and who were recently hired by Ocean Casino. Borgata took exception of Callahan for his failure to return a company-issued cell phone which was said to contain top secret information regarding Borgata’s high-rollers. Borgata claimed that Callahan refused to return the phone even after he had resigned from his post at their casino.

Callahan worked with Borgata’s highest-level customers who spent around $1.5M-$4M per visit. Borgata claimed that these clients were worth a collective $25M per year and Ocean was “crippling” their business using the information that Callahan took from Borgata using his cell phone. The case was filed in Nevada because MGM Resorts International, Borgata’s parent company, is located there.

Borgata Casino Files Lawsuit Against Ocean Casino

Borgata Hotel-Casino

Atlantic City’s top casino has filed a lawsuit against one of its competitors, claiming that the rival hired half-a-dozen of its former Marketing Executives in an effort to steal trade secrets.

The case was filed on Thursday by MGM Resort International’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa against Ocean Casino after the latter allegedly poached former Borgata executives in an attempt “to cripple” it by using details of its most profitable customers. According to Borgata, Ocean Casino violated unfair competition laws and agreements that prohibit at least two of the highest ranking executives from working for a competitor for a year after leaving.

High-Roller Customer Data

At the center of the complaint is former Borgata exec William Callahan who now works for Ocean Casino. It is alleged that Callahan has retained his Borgata-issued phone which contains valuable information about Borgata costumers. The lawsuit states that Callahan has refused to return the phone as recently as Monday this week.

Callahan was in charge of Borgata’s high-roller customers. These were patrons who spent $1.5M to $4M per visit and who would be flown in and out of the casino’s events using Borgata’s private jet. According to Borgata, these individuals were worth at least $25M per year to the company.

Aside from Callahan, Borgata also mentioned the name of former executive Kelly Ashman Burke in the document. The plaintiff also said that four other ex-marketing personnel have been hired by Ocean Casino in an attempt to “cripple” Borgata’s casino operations in Atlantic City.

Direct and Primary Competitor

The Borgata leads the nine-casino market in the area but in the lawsuit, it asserts that Ocean City is a direct and primary competitor for high-level customers in Atlantic City. Interestingly, Ocean Casino ranks just sixth among the nine Atlantic City casinos in terms of total revenues, making just one-thirds of what Borgata has raked in over the period.

The Ocean City Casino is the former Revel Casino which was shut down in 2014. The Revel operated for over two years and never came close to making a profit. But the casino reopened in 2018 under a new name and ownership and it has improved its ranking in the market.

Last month , Ocean Casino ranked second in Atlantic City casino win with its revenue of $23.6M a 23.1% increase against its July 2019 figures. Ocean saw nine straight months of slot pay growth before the coronavirus pandemic hit last March. Borgata was closed for the most part of July but in terms of income, it still makes three times more than any of its competitor.
