About Trans World Corporation

American-style gambling is a global bread winner for Trans World. The company, which focuses on small and midsized casinos and gaming parlors, owns and operates four niche casinos that feature slot machines and gaming tables in the Czech Republic. The casinos operate under the name American Chance Casinos and feature themes from different eras of US history (Chicago in the Roaring 1920s, Miami Beach in the 1950s, New Orleans in the 1920s, and the Pacific South Seas). The company also operates a casino in Croatia near a resort city on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Trans World is in the process of adding hotels to its operations. An investment group led by director Timothy Ewing owns nearly 40% of the company.

In order to complement its casino business, Trans World is entering the hospitality industry with the construction of hotels on or near three of its casinos (Route 55, Route 59, and Ceska). In 2009 the company opened the first of such developments, the Hotel Savannah, adjacent to the Route 59 Casino near Vienna.  Trans World is also considering acquisitions, conversions, management contracts, and future development. Through this strategy, it intends to offer more small to midsized four-star boutique hotels in Europe.

The company was founded in 1993 to develop and manage casinos that primarily featured video poker machines, most of which were located in Louisiana.  In 1998, it shifted its focus to the casino market in Europe. While Trans World's corporate headquarters remain in New York, the company has no operating presence in the US. The majority of its casino clientele travel from German and Austrian border regions.
