GLOBAL GAMING BUSINESS PODCAST: Terry Glebocki, CEO, Ocean Casino Resort

It was almost four months that Atlantic City casinos closed their doors, enduring the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. When they reopened in early July, there were strict guidelines on what they could and could not offer—inside dining being the most crucial. Terry Glebocki had only been CEO of Ocean Casino Resort since late last year when the shutdown order was given in mid-March. She explains how they closed down, how they stayed in touch with customers and employees during the shutdown, and how the reopening has performed. Players are flocking to Ocean with incentives provided by the casino and a pent up desire to gamble. Glebocki spoke the Roger Gros in July for an Atlantic City leaders roundtable to be published in the September issue of Gaming Law Review.
