There are always going to be risks attached with buying a derelict casino, ripping out its heart and then completely remodelling it.
You only have to look at the SLS Casino in Las Vegas to see that such business plans do not always work, and that has been proven by the fact that the SLS owners are throwing even more money at that casino to make it appealing to players who seem to be avoiding the place.
However, over in Atlantic City the once bustling Trump Taj Mahal casino did shut down and stood empty for a short amount of time, until it was brought back to life as the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
A fortune has been invested in that property to bring it back to life and that is something that has bore fruit for its new owners, and looking at just how busy the casino now is, it is fair to say the new Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City is popular with players now, more than it ever was as the Trump Taj Mahal.
It was no easy task however revamping that casino, for not only did the gaming floor which is huge have to be completely remodelled but each of the 2000 plus hotel rooms also had to be completely revamped too.
Wandering into the casino itself, anybody who did visit the Trump Taj Mahal casino in the days gone by will not recognise the place, and will be in awe at its fresh and some would say stunning new look, and with plenty of gaming machines and more table games than you could ever sit down and play at in one single session, it is a place worth visiting if you want to gamble.
