Bally’s Atlantic City has named Michael Monty, formerly assistant GM, as the property’s new general manager. Nicholas Polcino, the former GM, is moving to another Bally’s Corp. property in the Northeast, not identified by the operator, as GM.
Monty, a military veteran and Yale University graduate, will oversee the day-to-day operations of Bally’s AC and its nearly 1,500 employees.
Polcino, an industry veteran whose gaming career started at Bally’s AC, successfully guided the property through the ownership change as the property was purchased from Caesars Entertainment by Bally’s Corp., formerly Twin Rivers Holdings.
Monty is a former captain in the U.S. Army. He graduated from Army Ranger School and earned a bachelor’s degree from the U.S. Military Academy. His military resume includes combat service as a platoon leader in Afghanistan.
Monty also earned an MBA from the Yale School of Management.
After working in real estate and private equity, he joined Bally’s Corp. (then TRWH) in 2018 as director of corporate finance, focusing on acquisitions and development of casino resorts, slot routes, and gaming technologies.
