Atlantic City To Seek Developers For 4 New Casinos At Former Airport Property

Feather News

Four new casinos could be on the drawing board at Atlantic City's former Bader Field airport property if the city goes ahead with its plan to begin soliciting bids from developers.

The 150-acre airport property was thought to be a prime location for possible casinos as soon as the airport was closed in 2006.

Officials from the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority once said that if casinos were approved at the airport property, they would not be interested in bidding on the purchase of the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, however it is believed that MTGA decided not to bid for the Tropicana for other reasons.
