The luxurious Borgata casino is the last casino to resume operations in Atlantic City after four months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
US.- The Borgata casino, one of the largest venues in Atlantic City, has announced its reopening after four months of closure.
The company will return with a private, invitation-only “soft opening” on July 23, before opening to the general public from July 26.
The venue, owned by MGM Resorts, is the only casino in Atlantic City that did not immediately reopen on July 2 when New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy allowed casinos to resume operations.
Melonie Johnson, Borgata’s president and chief operating officer, had said then: “Following the Governor’s directive to postpone indoor dining, we took a step back to reassess our reopening date to ensure we could give our guests the world-class experience they expect from us, safely.”
The casino will now reopen, initially with limited facilities due to ongoing restrictions imposed by local authorities. The usual health and sanitation precautions will be taken throughout the property, and extra protocols introduced by the firm.
The Borgata has over 100,000 square feet of event space and 2,000 rooms, with 161,000 square feet of gaming, 189 table games, just under 3,000 slots and a 75-plus table poker room, plus racing and sportsbook.
