ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Competitors are already picking at the soon-to-be-closed Atlantic Club Casino Hotel, trying to lure customers and employees to their own casinos.

The Atlantic Club will close next Monday.

At least eight Atlantic City casinos are aggressively courting the Atlantic Club’s customers. They’re offering free slot play, free comp dollars, tickets to shows and parties, free buffets and parking, and other inducements.

Meanwhile, the Maryland Live! casino is in its second day of on-site recruiting at the Atlantic Club for workers to staff its casino.

The Atlantic Club was sold in a bankruptcy sale last month to Tropicana Entertainment and Caesars Entertainment. They will divvy up its assets and shut it down.
