ATLANTIC CITY - (AP) - If the owners of Revel Casino Hotel had their way, the $2.4 billion resort would be shut down on Monday.

Revel Entertainment had asked New Jersey casino regulators for permission to close on Aug. 18.

But the state Division of Gaming Enforcement denied the request, eventually prevailing upon Revel to remain open until Labor Day weekend.

Revel's hotel will close at 11 a.m. Sept. 1, and the casino will shut down at 5 a.m. the next morning.

The talks were revealed in a closing order for Revel issued late Friday night by the gaming enforcement division.

Revel is one of three Atlantic City casinos due to shut down in the coming weeks.

The Showboat is due to close Aug. 31 and Trump Plaza on Sept. 16.
