Spending your days connected to the latest video game could start paying off.

The idea is aimed at the generation of people who have been raised on Xbox, PlayStation and apps. Gaming experts say these people don't get much of a thrill sitting at a slot machine or blackjack table.

Atlantic City is losing revenue; and it's fighting back by losing clothes.

Over the past few years the city by the shore has been losing money to casinos in nearby states. It used to pull in about $5.2 billion a year; now that number is down to just over three billion. So to boost the bottom line Atlantic City is opening a strip club inside a casino for the first time since gambling became legal in 1976.

Next month scores; a famous New York strip club becomes part of the Trump Taj Mahal. The $25 million club will feature five VIP rooms, 11 stripper poles and an ultra-VIP room for celebrities and high rollers. The cover charge ranges from $10 to $30 and no cash necessary. Scores will offer diamond dollars which can be charged to credit cards at a 20% mark up.  read more »

Atlantic City is hoping to score some more customers and they’re gambling with the idea that sex really does sell.

Gambling in Atlantic City started to take off in 1978. Since then the city has been town over marketing themselves as family friendly or the sin city of the east coast. But lately it seems a direction has been chosen and it’s scantily clad. Blackjack dealers in the casinos are now wearing lingerie, there’s a new million dollar “gentlemen’s club” and soon visitors can enjoy the naked circus.  read more »
