Atlantic Club casino seeks bankruptcy protection

11-7-13

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Another Atlantic City casino has filed for bankruptcy protection.

The Atlantic Club Casino Hotel says it will remain open as it seeks a buyer in bankruptcy court.

It filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection late Wednesday.

Formerly known as the Atlantic City Hilton, the casino has struggled in the city’s cutthroat casino market. A deal to sell it to the world’s largest poker website fell through earlier this year.

Atlantic Club COO Michael Frawley says the casino’s strategy of offering low-priced gambling, food and entertainment has been working, but the market has not rebounded as fast as he hoped.

It joins Revel, the Tropicana and the Trump casinos among those who have sought bankruptcy protection in recent years.
