Video: Taj Mahal Takes Further Action to Shut Down EarlyPosted:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Casino owner Carl Ichan has taken even further action to prove he's serious about shutting down the Taj Mahal.
Ichan's management team is asking New Jersey Gambling Regulators for permission to shut down the property next month. Ichan says the casino is losing millions of dollars a month, while the city's main casino workers' union carries out a strike against it.
In addition for permission to close down the property, his team has filed a formal petition with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to approve plans to wind down table games, disconnect slot machines, store unused liquor and destroy cards, dice, and gambling chips.
The Taj Mahal plans to close Monday morning at 6 a.m. on October 10th, but is expected to wind down some of the table games starting September 26th.
