Dismantling the Atlantic Club

The dismantling of the former Atlantic Club Casino Hotel got underway on Thursday, with slot machines, table games and even potted plants being uprooted and carted out the front door.

Workers from Tropicana Entertainment began disconnecting the machines, wrapping them in plastic and wheeling them out to a tractor-trailer. A plant service removed plants that were in the best condition and tossed ones that had wilted or were dying into trash bins.
