Showboat joins the list of Atlantic City properties to announce its big plans for the summer season. The property owner, Bart Blatstein, made an unusual appearance at a press conference with a giant yellow snake hanging from his shoulders.
While that would raise a few eyebrows, the cameo appearance by the reptile does represent a part of the big news. The property is looking towards the May 15 opening of the Lucky snake at Showboat which will be New Jersey’s largest arcade measuring over 100,000 square feet.
Bart Blatstein received license approval last week for the arcade which is said to feature a 25,000-square-foot sports bar with an e-sports gaming area, and even more entertaining, a boxing ring.
The Lucky Snake will take over the former Showboat Casino which shut its doors in 2014.
