Trump Taj Mahal online
Much like Trump Plaza, the Trump Taj Mahal was among the first Atlantic City casinos to obtain an online gambling license and was initially immensely successful, securing a nearly 10% market share.
However, as the time passed the traffic decreased. February 2014 was a particularly bad month, as the revenue dropped to about $587,000 – a massive 46% decrease when compared with January. As a result, the Trump Taj Mahal was unable to challenge Borgata’s domination and ended up earning as much money as one of Caesars Entertainment’s online projects for the same market.
Trump Taj Mahal casino software
The online version of Trump Taj Mahal was available at uCasino.com and is powered by Ultimate Gaming, a subsidiary of Station Casinos that made history as the first company to offer legal online poker in the United States.
Created by specialists with over 30 years of experience under their belt, the Trump Taj Mahal Ultimate Casino gave players access to cutting-edge slots, video poker games and table games, as well as Ultimate Gaming’s unique brand of online poker.
Unfortunately, the number of titles ended up being rather rather limited, particularly when it comes to slots. On the bright side, the Ultimate Casino table games section was well developed and included all the popular casino classics like blackjack, roulette or three card poker, as well as modern titles like Let It Ride, Raise It Up or Fortune Pai Gow Poker.
Trump Taj Mahal land-based casino in Atlantic City
The Trump Taj Mahal was opened in April 1990 and is one of the two Atlantic City casino hotels owned by Trump Entertainment Resorts.
Often referred to as Taj or Tramp Taj by the locals, the casino sports a unique Indian theme and is the second-largest resort of this kind in the entire New Jersey area. The casino cost about one billion dollars to build and boasts over 167,000 square feet of gaming space. The Trump Taj Mahal remained the most popular and highest grossing casino in Atlantic City until 2003, when the Borgata became available to the general public.
The resort underwent major renovation in 2008, when the Chairman Tower was opened to new customers, bringing the total number of rooms up to 2,248. The poker room and the casino floor of Tramp Taj were featured in a cult 1998 poker movie “Rounders,” which made it even more popular among the American Texas Hold’em enthusiasts at the time.
The modern history of the Taj appears to have drawn to an end with the announcement in August 2016 that the property was set to close.
