Atlantic City Casino Hands Out $10 Million In Employee Bonuses

Hard Rock Pays Staff As Part Of Company Town Hall Event


Dealers and staff at the Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City received some good news this week. The property continued a six-year trend of paying out bonuses to thousands of union and non-union employees.

Staff members will now each receive a share of more than $10 million. The announcement was made during the casino’s annual town hall event to offer updates on the property and the company.

Team members also had the opportunity to win their share of $100,000 in cash and prizes.

“The bonuses and prizes served as a thank you to team members for their ongoing commitment to customer service and the success of the resort,” the casino noted in a statement.

For seven straight years, Hard Rock International has been recognized by Forbes as one of the country’s best large employers and has worked to reward employees.

Rewarding Employees

Casino work can involve long hours dealing at the gaming tables, walking the floor serving guests, cleaning hotel rooms, or keeping other parts of the gaming and hospitality operations running smoothly.

In 2022, the company announced an investment of $100 million to substantially raise the salaries of its U.S. workforce. The wage increases impacted 95 job classifications, including many in Atlantic City.

“Hard Rock Atlantic City team members are the key to our success in the market, and we are honored to recognize them and their hard work,” Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen said.

“We witness our team members’ unwavering dedication to providing superior service every day, and it is truly inspiring," Hard Rock Atlantic City President George Goldhoff said. “Our team strives to live up to our ‘Love All – Serve All’ motto each day to make a difference both for our guests and within our community.”

In other recent Atlantic City gaming news, two casinos won a recent lawsuit alleging that the properties allowed a problem gambler to continue betting. A judge ruled that casinos don’t have an obligation to stop compulsive gamblers. The state is also still seeing efforts to completely ban smoking in casinos.
