To reinforce the company core-motto “All Is One” Jim Allen emphasized the leadership’s commitment to property reinvestment, Atlantic City and team members, announcing over $2 million in bonuses, starting at $250 per person, which will be awarded to all union and non-union full-time team members.

This is the first time in over a decade that any casino in Atlantic City has allocated bonuses to all full-time team members, union included. In addition to the bonus announcement, leadership presented $40,000 in cash along with six all-expenses paid travel experiences to the new Guitar Hotel™ at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.

“We could not be more proud of our team members and their hard work during the last 18 months Hard Rock Atlantic City has been open,” said Chairman of Hard Rock International and CEO of Seminole Gaming Jim Allen. “Today is about you. We are committed to the future of this property and we hope that together we can continue to work hard in providing the best possible service for guests visiting our resort destination.”
