When the Covid 19 lockdown began in March, Steve Callender had oversight of just one Atlantic City property, the Tropicana. When it was over in July he had added three others—Caesars, Harrah’s and Bally’s—as a result of the closing of the purchase of Caesars Entertainment by Eldorado. Callender, a longtime Atlantic City executive, explains how he navigated the lockdown given the certainty of the merger and how they plan to slowly reopen to full capacity. This interview will be part of feature in the September edition of Gaming Law Review, where a panel of AC leaders discusses the lockdown and its impact. Callender spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his Atlantic City offices in August.
