New Resorts owner: All ailing casino needs is love

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - December 5, 2010

But so are love and positive spiritual energy.

Gomes got approval last week to buy the struggling casino with partner Morris Bailey for the fire-sale price of $31.5 million from lenders who had taken it over a year ago.

The veteran gambling executive and regulator whose tenure as Nevada's top casino corruption-buster was part of the 1995 Martin Scorsese film "Casino" says he'll try to harness "chi," the positive life energy embodied in martial arts.

He also says love is the most powerful force in the universe, and something to be tapped for a successful business.
