ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

The former Revel Casino is getting ready for its second chance at life as the new Ocean Resort Casino.

With just 16 days to go before one of Atlantic City's shuttered casinos reopens its doors, employees with the casino are busy at work making sure they're ready to greet their first guests.

Owner Bruce Deifik promises the newly improved shore resort will be more customer-friendly than it was in the past.

Revel was considered a big flop after costing nearly $2.4 billion to construct and only staying open for two years.

Ocean Resort Casino is set to open on Thursday, June 28th, along with the new Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, formerly known as the Trump Taj Mahal.
