It’s a truly a sad day in the South Jersey gaming community, as Resorts Atlantic City has confirmed that casino co-owner and CEO Dennis Gomes has died at age 67.  No cause of death was immediately given and more information is pending from Resorts.

Through his 30 year career in the gaming industry, Gomes was known for creating and running successful… casino operations and helping to eradicate organized crime in the gaming industry.  He managed 14 separate hotel/casino resorts during his career and served as the Nevada Gaming Control Board Chief, responsible for instituting tougher regulations on the gaming industry in Nevada.

But, it was here in Atlantic City where Gomes has really left his mark.

As the president of the Tropicana Resort and Casino, Dennis Gomes is credited with the conception and implementation of the Havana themed retail and entertainment complex “The Quarter at the Tropicana”.

After leaving the Trop, Gomes was part of the ownership team that purchased Resorts International in 2010 and was working to re-image the casino with a roaring 20’s flapper theme.

He was very well-liked and respected by those who worked with him in gaming industry over the years and his family is known for their help with many local South Jersey charities.

Dennis Gomes will be sorely missed in  Atlantic City.
