Christie: Former Revel Casino Will Not Reopen...Yet

Last Edited:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

Despite the rumors, it looks like the former Revel is not set to reopen under the new name of TEN anytime soon.

In a radio interview on April 20th, N.J. Governor Chris Christie revealed how he hopes the owner of the casino will sell the property if he is unwilling to show financial documents and get the required licensing to open the casino hotel.

Christie added that as long as he remains in office, the current owner, Glenn Straub, will not be able to open until those things are done.

Straub bought the $2.4 billion seaside property for $82 million two years ago and has been battling with regulators over when and how they should reopen the casino under the new name, TEN, for several months.
