The Trump World's Fair Casino Hotel was closed in October 1999. The World's Fair was reported to be awkwardly designed, with an expensive lease for walkway access and difficult to reach for customers. The 22 story property had been a $13 million drag on earnings for Trump Hotel and Casino Resorts, Inc. Mr. Trump had bought the property for $63 million in 1989 and had invested another $48 million in 1996.
The company is designing a new $750 million, 4,000 room casino to replace it. If they decide to go ahead with the new property, it will encompass three city blocks and have a 200,000 square foot casino. As of October 1999, it is still in the planning stages.
Trump World's Fair Casino Hotel, although not as large and glitzy as its larger Trump siblings, offers excellent accommodations, non-stop gaming, and three of the best restaurants down on the boards.
The 21-story Trump World's Fair Casino has been reported to be losing money for some time. It will be closed by 1 October 1999, and razed to build a new, bigger gambling hall.
Trump has plans to buy the West Hall of the Boardwalk Convention Hall which is vacant and build a new casino hotel, most likely with a partner, to the tune of $750 million. By combining the West Hall with the property of the World's Fair, the site would be approximately 7-acres. The company has agreements to buy additional parcels, also.
This could conceivably all fall into place and the new casino may be open before the arch rival Mirage opening in 2003.
General: Features 500 nicely appointed rooms. The casino is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and features a variety of slot machines and gaming tables. The various convention and meeting rooms can accommodate up to 1,600.
