ONCE LITTLE Ashley and Jared are snug in bed, Resorts Casino Hotel rolls out "Cirque Risque," which is being billed as the show taking casino entertainment to a new, sexier level. Because Resorts Casino-Hotel head honcho Dennis Gomes is the closest thing to legendary steel pier impresarios George Hamid Sr. and George Hamid Jr. that Atlantic City has seen during the legal gaming era, he can be forgiven for portraying "Cirque Risqué" as something other than what it is - or, as they say, for selling the sizzle instead of the steak.

A New Jersey court will allow celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred to represent nine cocktail servers who are suing Resorts Casino Hotel, alleging they were fired in favor of younger servers who look better in the skimpy costumes the casino requires them to wear. The casino had sought to bar Allred from the case, arguing that she isn't licensed to practice in New Jersey. But Superior Court Judge Joseph Marczyk, in a decision made public Tuesday, allowed Allred and her partner Nathan Goldberg to participate in the case, which is being handled by another lawyer licensed to practice in New Jersey.

Caesars Entertainment Corp., which owns four casinos in Atlantic City, on Wednesday received permits from New Jersey casino regulators to participate in the "soft" launch of Internet gaming Thursday. The permits cover all four of Caesars' Atlantic City properties, but, to start, the Las Vegas company is only using Bally's Atlantic City and Caesars Atlantic City, Caesars spokesman Seth Palansky said. "We appreciate the licensing today by the Casino Control Commission and are excited to launch CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com and WSOP.com to those inside New Jersey's borders," Palansky said.

ATLANTIC CITY - Atlantic City's casinos still aren't playing "Back In Black" over their loudspeakers, but the decline in their revenue slowed significantly in May. The city's casinos won more than $253.1 million last month, down 3.8 percent compared with a year ago. The figure is far less than the double-digit declines the casinos registered in the first four months of this year. It was indisputably the best month of the year for the casinos. January saw a 13.7 percent decline, followed by plunges of 12.5 percent in February, 10.5 percent in March and 12.1 percent in April.

An Atlantic County man pleaded guilty to manslaughter Wednesday for the fatal beating of his 64-year-old mother two days after being released from prison for a previous slaying, prosecutors said. Steven Pratt, 47, will serve at least 21 years and three months in prison - at least 85 percent of his 25-year sentence - for killing Gwendolyn Pratt on Oct. 12, 2014. She had picked him up from Bayside State Prison and threw him a welcome-home party at their house in the 1800 block of McKinley Avenue in Atlantic City.

ATLANTIC CITY - When the Revel mega-casino opens in May, many of its dealers, beverage servers and other customer service workers will be young, attractive and sexy. And a policy the casino is implementing will probably keep it that way. Applicants are being told they will have jobs for perhaps only four years at a time, after which they will have to reapply. That means competing with younger, fresher faces - a requirement that has never been made before in the 33-year history of casino gambling in Atlantic City.

ATLANTIC CITY - Perhaps you've wondered whether there really were diving horses on the old Steel Pier or what the difference was between a rumrunner and a bootlegger. Let Enoch "Nucky" Johnson, the 1920s political boss who is fast becoming to this seaside gambling town what Mickey Mouse is to Disney, be your guide to revealing those secrets and more about this fabled resort. Atlantic City has been Nucky mad since the 2010 debut of HBO's Boardwalk Empire . The series, which will return in September, follows one Nucky Thompson and was inspired by a book by Superior Court Judge Nelson Johnson, of Hammonton, about the exploits of the real-life racketeer.

When the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel closes next month, under a bankruptcy sale approved Monday, it will be the first victim of a slump that has seen Atlantic City's gambling revenue fall to an expected total of less than $3 billion this year from $5.2 billion in 2006. Will others follow the Atlantic Club out of business, as Atlantic City continues losing gamblers to the spread of casinos throughout the Northeastern United States? "Everybody speculates that," said Frank Fantini, publisher of Fantini's Gaming Report.

Given Atlantic City's ongoing fiscal crisis and other negatives making news, some might think the town's casinos have given up on innovation and improvement. Investments in new attractions have decreased, but six of the town's eight gambling dens have added amenities as we head into the summer of 2016. Nowhere is that more evident than in the realm of dance clubs. By the middle of June, there will be two new state-of-the-art danceterias under casino roofs, Premier Nightclub at Borgata and Kiss Kiss A Go-Go at Tropicana, as well as Wav at Philly developer Bart Blatstein's ocean-straddling entertainment complex, the Playground.

MAYS LANDING, N.J. - Tears rolled down Steven Pratt's face in an empty courtroom Tuesday and guilt spilled from his mouth. Pratt, 45, stood alone without an attorney, his hulking frame hunched over as he sobbed, and he seemed eager to skip the proceedings and head back to the place he's called home for 30 years - prison. Pratt is accused of beating his mother, Gwendolyn Pratt, to death on Sunday, less than two days after she picked him up from Bayside State Prison and threw him a welcome-home party at their house in Atlantic City.

WHEN Steven L. Pratt walked out of prison Friday morning after 30 years, his mom was there waiting and took him to get pancakes. Gwendolyn Pratt, 64, helped her son get a driver's permit, a cellphone and a bank account after breakfast at IHOP, along with the help of his brother, a relative said, and his first day beyond the bars of Bayside State Prison ended with a welcome-home party back at their house in Atlantic City. Steven Pratt's uncle Darryl Pratt said he was nervous but hopeful that Steven, jailed since he was 15 for shooting a neighbor in the head in 1984, could assemble a new life from nothing, somehow, at age 45. "He was saying all the right things.

Atlantic City has become a place where hedge-fund managers go to lose their shirts. Three of the four Atlantic City casinos that closed this year (or four of five, if Taj Mahal closes in November) were controlled by hedge funds that suffered deep - but difficult to measure - losses. By contrast, operators with deep experience with casinos bought Resorts and the former Trump Marina (now Golden Nugget) in 2010 and 2011. Both casinos are showing signs of turning the corner - although the Atlantic City market overall remains far from settled.

ATLANTIC CITY - In retail, it's a numbers game, so whenever Rachel Lewis heard or read that another casino was closing here, she'd get knots in her stomach. The thought racing through her mind: Fewer casinos means fewer hotels, which equates to fewer tourists at her stores. "Every Shore town under and above Atlantic City relies on tourism," said Lewis, 24, district manager at Making Waves, an upscale women's apparel chain only at the Shore, with four shops within a two-hour drive of Atlantic City - in Stone Harbor, Ocean City, Long Beach Island, and one in Cape May that is open year-round.
