Tropicana Casino and Resort Hit Again by High Roller

Tropicana Casino and Resort Hit Again by High Roller

It's been a rough few weeks for the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City as it was once again cleaned out by a high stakes gambler, this time to the tune of $5.3 million. The most recent loss comes on the heels of a $5.8 million loss to high stakes blackjack player Don Johnson (no relation to the television start), who claims to have taken various Atlantic City casinos for more than $15 million in recent months.

The latest big winner wasn't identified by Tropicana officials, but they did say it wasn't Johnson and that the lucky player was betting $100,000 at a time at the craps tables, as well as playing mini-baccarat and blackjack. As part of a broader strategy to regain some of the business it has lost in recent years to neighboring casinos (both in AC and other surrounding states that have opened newer casinos) the Tropicana has upped its table limits to allow high stakes players to wager $100,000 or more per hand.

"That's just how it goes sometimes; if you bet more, you can win more," said Tony Rodio, the Tropicana's president and CEO. "We have a strategy of offering the most aggressive and highest table games limits in the Atlantic City market and we're not going to change that. If someone wants to take the shot, we'll take the action."

The unidentified winner also wasn't stingy with his good fortune, leaving a $150,000 tip that was divided among the blackjack and other table games dealers and croupiers on duty the night of his big win.
