Trump casinos bid on the table

The Trump casinos in Atlantic City have received their first bid.

Former Atlantic City casino executive Dennis Gomes and New York-based JEMB Realty Corp., have put in a bid to buy Trump Entertainment Resorts in its entirety. Executives for the real estate company have confirmed the bid but declined comments on the specifics.

Gomes, who left the Aztar Corp. in 2005, is looking forward to work back in Atlantic City. Among the many gambling jobs he has held through his 35-year career was a president of the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Gomes was also an investigator for the Nevada Gaming Control Board, and his investigation of the Stardust Casino organized crime skimming operation in Las Vegas formed the basis for the Martin Scorsese film "Casino."

In May, Trump announced it received indications of interest for an acquisition, a couple of months after the company hired Merrill Lynch & Co. to explore "strategic options."
