Betting on disposable income

Resorts Casino Hotel recently opened Prohibition, the first gay nightclub in an Atlantic City casino. Investors are betting on the marketing claim that gays have more disposable income than straights. Prohibition is located on the 13th floor of the casino and decorated in a Roaring ’20s theme. “People think gays don’t gamble. That’s not true. They gamble. They drink. They like to travel. And they have that extra income,” said former gay bar owner John Schultz, who lobbied for the nightclub at Resorts.
