Last Edited:

The new Ocean Resort Casino held its own grand opening celebration Thursday afternoon.

On Thursday, June 28th, Ocean Resort officials held a ribbon cutting to officially reopen the doors of the former Revel Casino.

During the ceremony, officials said they are honored to play a part in helping to bring Atlantic City back to all its shining glory.

"I really have felt that there's a renaissance that's been happening over the last two and a half, three years, people maybe weren't paying attention to it," said Bruce Deifik, owner of the Ocean Resort Casino. "And I'm very excited for Atlantic City because I see it transforming in front of my eyes."

To help celebrate the Ocean Resort Casino's grand opening, actor/musician Mark Wahlberg stopped by to place the first sports bet at the casino.

Throughout the weekend, Ocean Resort will offer food, live entertainment, and gaming.
