Ocean Resort Casino to open same day as Hard Rock
Atlantic City's Ocean Resort Casino says it will open the same day as the Hard Rock casino.
Bruce Deifik, who owns the former Revel casino, says the Ocean Resort will be ready for guests on June 28.
Revel closed back in September 2014 and was one of five Atlantic City casinos to go out of business since 2014.
The group also included the former Trump Taj Mahal, which closed in October 2016 and is reopening as the Hard Rock.
According to Ocean Resort CEO Frank Leone, June 28 will be a special day for Atlantic City, as it marks the beginning of a revitalization.
The two casinos will combine to restore about 6,500 of the 11,000 casino jobs lost since 2014 due to shutdowns.
