The late owner of Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City is headed to the Gaming Hall of Fame.
Dennis Gomes was a veteran casino executive and mob-busting investigator in Las Vegas. He died in February of complications from kidney dialysis.
The head of the American Gaming Association, Frank Fahrenkopf Jr., says the casino industry "lost one of its boldest and most creative owners." The casino industry's main trade organization announced its selections to the Hall of Fame on Tuesday.
The movie "Casino" was based on a mob-run theft operation that Gomes uncovered while working with the Nevada Gaming Commission.
The induction ceremony will be held Oct. 23 in Las Vegas.
