Golden Nugget Atlantic City is a hotel, casino, and marina located in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Opened in 1985 as Trump's Castle, it was renamed Trump Marina in 1997. Landry’s purchased the casino from Trump Entertainment Resorts in February 2011, and the sale was approved in late May. Landry's took control of the property on May 23, 2011.[1]

History[edit]

The casino was built by Hilton Hotels, but that company was denied a gambling license by the State of New Jersey due to alleged ties to organized crime when the building was nearly complete and they had to sell the complex to Donald Trump.[2] It opened in 1985 as "Trump's Castle". In 1988, the casino became one of the settings for the game show version of Yahtzee. In 1990, the Trump Castle became the Setting for the game show, "Trump Card". The resort was renamed "Trump Marina" in 1997, and was sold after Trump Entertainment went through bankruptcy. Landry's purchased it, renaming it the Golden Nugget Atlantic City, and has pumped $150 million into the complex, opening new restaurants and clubs, repainting the exterior of the building, and other renovations to bring the resort up to current casino standards.

Gaming[edit]

The almost 65,000-square-foot casino floor offers about 72 gaming tables, 1,500 slot machines, 10 live poker tables, and bar-top video poker at Bar 46. [3]
