The resort that brought gaming to Atlantic City in 1978, Resorts Casino Hotel, a Mohegan Property, is a world-class casino offering action and relaxation that keeps the focus on fun. Making history as the first American casino outside of Nevada, Resorts Casino Hotel will soon celebrate its 45th Anniversary in May of 2023. Resorts Casino Hotel is a consistent winner of gaming awards in both Casino Player Magazine and Strictly Slots Magazine. 2013 saw the completion of $130 million in upgrades to Resorts Casino Hotel, including the brand-new, cutting-edge Resorts Conference Center, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Landshark Grill Complex, and the opening of the only full-service bar and restaurant open all year long on the sand side of the Boardwalk Landshark Bar and Grill. In 2018, Resorts also welcomed DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts, a popular on-property sportsbook offering guests live, in-game and general sports betting around the world.

Mohegan assumed management of Resorts Casino Hotel in 2012, a move that has set the stage for its return as the most exciting gaming destination in Atlantic City. Boasting a prime location spanning 21 acres at the northern end of the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk, the resort features 942 guest rooms and suites in two hotel towers, an 80,000 square-foot casino, two theaters, 10 restaurants, a food court featuring six eateries, two VIP slot and table player lounges, a casino bar, indoor-outdoor swimming pool, health club and spa, salon, and retail shops.
