Atlantic City Lawmakers Set Their Eyes on North Jersey Casinos

atlantic-city-new-jersey-shoreline-75x7521 July 2014 – During its peak year in 2006, Atlantic City had approximately 39,000 slot machines. However, when neighboring states legalized gambling, a gambling landscape was created all across the Northwest. Now since two, possibly three, casinos will close its doors in Atlantic City, the lawmakers in the state have their eyes on broadening gambling to North Jersey and are looking to expand the image of the resort city as a convention hub and vacation area. The Atlantic Club closed in January, while Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino announced that it will close in the fall. Caesars also plans to shut down its Showboat Casino by the end of August, while Revel has been put up for auction.
