Tropicana Casino and Resort has promised its new expansion project will deliver an experience unlike anything Atlantic City has offered in the past.

However, the $225 million project has been pushed back a year until 2004 to allow time to pass following the opening of Boyd Gaming Corp's billion-dollar Borgata casino.

Borgata is slated to open in the summer of 2003. The centerpiece of the Tropicana expansion is The Quarter, a 200,000 square foot, three-story shopping village.
