Who Says You Can't Win in the Casino?
ATLANTIC CITY - Blackjack whiz Don Johnson scorched Tropicana Casino and Resort for $2 million in October, adding to the $15 million he had previously won in Atlantic City during an incredible streak of good luck.

Johnson was not the only gambler who scored big last month. Figures released Thursday by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement showed that casino table games revenue plunged nearly 17 percent industrywide in October, while slot machines were down 4 percent.

Overall, the 11 casino hotels posted $261.7 million in revenue, a decline of 8 percent compared with $284 million in October 2010. Atlantic City's wobbly gaming industry has suffered 38 straight months of revenue declines.

October's figures were remarkable for the casinos' awful luck at the table games. In other words, gamblers beat the house this time around.

Johnson disclosed that he won $2 million at Tropicana's blackjack tables. His story was confirmed by Tropicana Chief Executive Officer Tony Rodio after Johnson spoke to The Press of Atlantic City.

"I went back in and did very well," Johnson, of Bensalem, Pa., said of his haul.

Johnson, now an international celebrity dubbed the "Beast of Blackjack," became famous after he beat three Atlantic City casinos out of a total of $15.1 million from last December to April. His April winnings included $5.8 million during a 12-hour gambling spree at Tropicana. He hit it big again at Tropicana in October. His exploits were the main reason Tropicana's table games revenue plummeted 57 percent for the month. Rodio said another Tropicana table games player won close to $1 million in October. The gambler's name was not revealed.
