Default Report: Tropicana given 21 warnings

Report: Tropicana given 21 warnings

JOHN ZIOMEK/Courier-Post file
Columbia-Sussex Corp. took over the Tropicana at the beginning of the year.

Tuesday, November 27, 2007

By WILLIAM H. SOKOLIC
Courier-Post Staff
ATLANTIC CITY

The Division of Gaming Enforcement issued 21 warning letters to the Tropicana between Jan. 9 and Oct. 16, about a quarter of the total number of letters sent throughout the industry.

The number of alleged violations is indicative of the way Columbia-Sussex Corp., Tropicana's parent company, has operated since it took over the casino at the beginning of the year, the DGE said in a scathing report prepared for a relicensing hearing before the Casino Control Commission. The hearings began last week and are expected to wrap up by Friday, the day the casino's current license expires.

Rule bending, rule breaking and cost-cutting practices are at the heart of the case before the commission, which will decide if Tropicana is worthy of licensure and whether Columbia-Sussex and CEO William Yung are suitable to run a casino in Atlantic City.

"Tropicana and its new ownership have demonstrated a measurable resistance against compliance with regulations and have provided information on proposed staff reductions which has been misleading or contradictory," Acting DGE Director Yvonne G. Maher wrote in the report.

Good, maybe they will fail in their renewal bid and lose their gaming license.

This should fatten up the poker scene at other places. Also they would have to rent their rooms at a cheaper rate.

I played poker at this casino one for like 3 hours before we noticed we were playing with (2) 7d's, and obviously missing one other card.

joke, plus the rooms are about the same price as staying at flamingo which is better location and better quality.

cliffnotes: tropicana sux anyways.

I think we're talking about The Trop in AC. But I agree, the Trop in Vegas sucks too.

At least we can give them high marks for brand consistency.

Yeah, but the AC joint is a mega casino, which a responsible operation can turn out some nice coin.
