Online gambling in New Jersey has skyrocketed profits for local Atlantic City casinos. Will this new change affect the hotel resorts profit? Well, it appears that the legalization of online sports betting has made online casinos in New Jersey even more profitable. Also, the European online gambling operator Bet365 appears to have made some strong moves to enter the United States Internet gambling market. The old Hard Rock casino president in Atlantic City was Matt Harkness, who will replace him?
Who Is The New President At Atlantic City’s Hard Rock Casino ?
Indeed, the question going around the real money gambling communities has been who is going to replace Matt Harkness to be the next President of Hard Rock International. In a recent article , it appears that Hard Rock International intends to replace Matt Harkness on November 1, 2018 with Joe Lupo.
Furthermore, there was nothing said about the reason for the change. However, we can only speculate that it has to do with the new changes in the Internet gambling market, more specifically, the legal NY sports betting business.
Who Is Joe Lupo And How Can He Help Atlantic City’s Hard Rock Casino?
Well, Joe Lupo has a strong gambling background and resume. Above all, he comes from The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, where his official title is “Senior Vice President of Operations of Marina District Development Company LLC “. In January 2017, it appears that Mr. Joe Lupo changed his casino management position from Senior Vice President of Operations of Marina District Development Company LLC (Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa), to President of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (Tampa at Seminole Hard Rock International, LLC).
For over three decades, Mr. Joe Lupo has worked in the real money casino management, entertainment and betting business and software gaming industry. More specifically, Joe Lupo used to work for the Boyd Gaming. Indeed, Hard Rock International purchases the resort from The US President Donald Trump (Trump Taj Majal). Since then, Hard Rock spends approximately three hundred million dollars to renovate the resort. That said, it was reported in the “Atlantic City Press”, in the first few months of operation, the Hard Rock was the highest grossing casino in the state of New Jersey. Furthermore, this was after they announced their agreement with Bet365 after New Jersey legalizes online sports betting.
The Hard Rock casino in Atlantic City is one of the leading online casinos in New Jersey. Also, they may allow mobile sports betting out of casino resort for residents of the State of New Jersey. We are unclear if the new president will have a large effect on how the resort does. However, the rumors in the real money gambling communities are that the Hard Rock is going to be one of the biggest players in the entire United States of America gambling market.
