Updated on October 27, 2018

Don’t think for one minute that Halloween is for kids only. Not if you can get to Atlantic City where every casino in town is all geared up to give you and your companions a howling good time. But Tropicana is one place you can always count on year after year to go the extra mile to make Halloween and the days leading up to it spooktacular.

However, this year lucky you can start celebrating extra early. In fact, since Halloween falls midweek, this Saturday night is when all the big parties take place instead.

Otherwise, is Halloweek at the Trop going to be any different or less over the top than in previous years? Check it out for yourself. Between spooky looking food and drink specials galore and the Jamie Lee Curtis film “Halloween” playing at the IMAX Theater all week long, the answer is obvious. Not a ghost of a chance!

Stop at the William Hill Sportsbook

As you can see, if celebrating Halloween is your thing, the Tropicana Atlantic City offers something for everyone. But if you’re a sports fan, too, here’s the news you’ve been waiting for. The Tropicana had been announcing for a long time that a sportsbook was in the works, but the opening date was mystery. Well, that day is here. The William Hill Sportsbook made its debut in the Tropicana North Tower on Thursday, Oct. 25.

I will be visiting the new sportsbook next week to see how it compares with the William Hill Sportsbook at Ocean Resort Casino and other Atlantic City sportsbooks. So look for my detailed review right here on NJ Gambling Websites soon. Meanwhile, check out Atlantic City’s newest sportsbook for yourself.
