Investors in failed Mob Experience: Jay Bloom ‘has given us a shot at making our money back’

Jay Bloom, managing partner of the Las Vegas Mob Experience, poses in a prison bus at the Tropicana Tuesday, March 1, 2011. The $25 million Mob Experience will officially open March 29. The bus was originally to provide transportation to the experience but will instead be converted into a ticket booth, Bloom said.

Jay Bloom could have left Las Vegas and never looked back. He was sued multiple times by investors, lenders and contractors involved with the Las Vegas Mob Experience, the museum he founded and briefly operated at the Tropicana in 2011. The attraction went bankrupt, was sold for cents on the dollar and closed. But Bloom didn't cut and run. He fought the lawsuits, and today, he not only has put his legal problems to rest but is vowing to repay his investors, even though he's not legally obligated to do so.
