470 of Showboat casino workers get new jobs with company

Resort to close Sunday after 27 years on Atlantic City boardwalk

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - More than 470 of the 2,000-plus workers at Atlantic City's Showboat Casino Hotel have found new jobs with other casinos owned by its parent company.

The Showboat is shutting down Sunday afternoon after 27 years on the boardwalk.

Gary Loveman, CEO of Caesars Entertainment, sent a letter to company employees Friday thanking them for their service and dedication even while not knowing if they would have jobs.

Loveman said about half of the Showboat workers who applied for jobs elsewhere with the company got them, mostly at its three remaining casinos in Atlantic City: Bally's, Caesars and Harrah's.

Showboat is one of three Atlantic City casinos shutting down soon.

Revel will close Monday and Tuesday, and Trump Plaza is shutting down Sept. 16.
