Hard Rock, Ocean Resort Casinos Give Atlantic City Financial Boost

Last Edited:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -


Atlantic City's two newest casinos have been doing pretty well for themselves in their respective first 100 days of operation.

Since their grand openings on Wednesday, June 27th, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and the Ocean Resort Casino have given a boost to Atlantic City.

Both casinos are being closely watched to see if the recently right-sized Atlantic City market can handle the new supply of gambling and hotel rooms.

The Hard Rock has won more from gamblers, at $68 million, while Ocean Resort has won nearly $41 million.

However, a Stockton University analyst says the two new casinos took less business from existing competitors in August than they did in July.
