Memorial Day Weekend Casino Celebrations


The big Memorial Day weekend is here, and at least two Atlantic City casinos–Resorts and Tropicana–have planned big celebrations for your enjoyment. Here are the special activities taking place at each of these locations this weekend.

Resorts Casino Hotel

Last year was an especially big one for Resorts as May 26, 2018 marked this hotel and casino’s 40th anniversary. But that spectacular accomplishment isn’t stopping Atlantic City’s first casino from celebrating its anniversary again in a big way this year.

Of course, you can be part of the fun and excitement. All you have to do is show up!

Friday, May 24

Resorts is kicking off Memorial Day weekend on Friday with live music, contests, and games on the Boardwalk and strolling entertainers throughout the property and giveaways galore all day long.

Also, Bar One is serving up drink specials, while a DJ entertains you

But the highlight of the day comes at 5 p.m. when it’s time for the casino’s 6th annual Beach Ball Drop. The sight of 5,000 beach balls dropping on the Atlantic City Boardwalk is not to be missed!

After the ball drop, you can keep the party going at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville or LandShark Bar & Grill. There’s no better way to usher in summer than with a frozen drink on the Boardwalk with the ocean right beside you.

Sunday, May 26

Iconic singing sensation Tony Orlando will perform at the SuperStar Theater starting at 8 p.m. This is your chance to hear and sing along to familiar favorites like “Tie a Yellow Ribbon,” “Sweet Gypsy Rose,” “Knock Three Times,” Candida,” and more. Tickets are $45, $55, and $65.

Daily Chances to Win up to $1,000,000 and Other Great Prizes

In addition, May 24 is day 1 of a brand new prize offering that will continue all summer long through September 2. The object is to correctly pick whether the next card drawn will be higher or lower than the card that was just flipped. If you answer correctly, you will move on to the next level. And if you make it all the way to level 10, you win $1 million!

You can play once each day for free. Or if you earn 5 points in the casino, you can play a second time.

In addition, each time you play, you earn one entry for the End of Summer $50,000 sweepstakes taking place on September 21!
