Ocean Resort Casino Officially Announces Opening DateLast Edited:
Officials with Atlantic City's Ocean Resort Casino have officially announced a grand opening date for the property.
The former Revel Casino will be ready for guests on Thursday, June 28th, which is the same day the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City is expected to open its doors.
Ocean Resort officials say they choose the same date because it will be a special day for the city as it marks the beginning of a revitalization in the resort town.
The two casinos will combine to restore about 6,500 of the 11,000 jobs that were lost since 2014 due to casino shutdowns.
