While the casino hasn’t reached the best results since its reopening, the facility’s owner is content with the progress.
US.- The formerly called Revel casino’s ownership has suffered several changes in the last few years, until Colorado developer Bruce Deifik decided to invest in the facility. The facility reopened its doors in June, and while it still needs work to be a force in Atlantic City, the city has enjoyed good results ever since.
“I’m very, very pleased so far because people didn’t give Revel a chance in hell of ever reopening its doors and being successful,” Deifik said, as Press of Atlantic City reported. “For the first time in its history, it has positive cash flow, I’m paying all my bills, and I have 3,380 full-time workers on my payroll. We are on a good path now.”
The facility’s sports book totalled almost US$1.75 million in August, only behind Borgata and Resorts among casino sports books in the city. Ocean Resort is still in the process of developing its retail sector, as it is currently rolling out restaurants and 600 more hotel rooms to its inventory of 2000, which is the highest offer in the city.
