An Overview of Resorts Casino Hotel
Posted On May 12, 2020
When the Resorts Casino Hotel opened on 26 May 1978, it was the first US casino outside of Nevada State to do so legally, in the wake of then-recent changes to national gaming law. Resorts Casino Hotel is also the oldest operational casino hotel in Atlantic City.
What started out as two wooden three-storey Quaker homes, The Chalfonte House and The Haddon House, now dominates the AC Boardwalk as the two imposing skyscrapers of the Resorts Casino Hotel – Rendezvous Tower and Ocean Tower.
