We have seen that, in recent years, Atlantic City and its casinos have evolved a lot. We must admit that these establishments have come a long way, especially since the terrible crisis of 2008 which particularly caused damage in this sector. A nasty period during which many leaders were forced to make concessions; by closing for example five of the twelve casinos on site. And, as a sign of regained good health, two of them have just reopened their doors just a few days ago. Under new management, the Hard Rock Atlantic City and the Ocean Resort Casino are rising from their ashes. An opportunity for Roulette.be to see if this would not mark here a revival for Atlantic City…
Things are moving in Atlantic City
In any case, we can certainly say that there is indeed something new in Atlantic City. This city, which for a long time was a leading gambling destination in the United States and which is located a few kilometers from New York, has in fact allowed its twelve main casinos to rake in very good and big profits. But that was before the 2000s. Currently, there are only seven casinos in operation. This is also one of the reasons why investors are cautious and rather hesitant to take risks. It is indeed difficult for them to come and bring their capital to these establishments which, however, are no longer really experiencing the crisis.
But if investors are more on the reserve, there is one who has not really hesitated for long, seeing in the former Trump Taj Mahal as an interesting potential to exploit. The firm Hard Rock Entertainment has therefore effectively bought the property in bankruptcy, not afraid to spend millions, just to bring it up to date and especially to its taste and style.
New casinos already open
More surprisingly, and seeing himself rather rarely usually in this universe; the Hard Rock Casino finally opened a day early. This gaming establishment has therefore been accessible since last week. History to stand out and make noise, he plans to offer his visitors several festivities, including the upcoming arrival of rapper Pitbull and Carrie Underwood, singer-songwriter and American actress whose musical universe is close. country and pop. An establishment then remained closed for 4 years, from 2014 to this year.
But the Ocean Resort has made it known since its opening that it does not really intend to focus solely on casino games. He intends to rub shoulders with sports betting. It therefore stands out from its new rival Hard Rock Atlantic City, taking advantage of the fact that the latter does not have a bookmaker. An opportunity for him to stand out and reach an additional clientele by offering something really new and profitable through a space dedicated to sport within his structure and on no less than 700m² of surface. On this occasion, new visitors who came to attend the opening of the establishment were able, for example, to linger at the William Hill stand, which was entitled to its temporary location for the opening day. Our little finger tells us that William Hill plc,
Casinos are still popular
The casino world is now in perfect growth and Atlantic City seems to intend to recreate the affluence in the city and to revive its rating with these two new openings. But these kind of casinos are not the only ones to win the hearts of players. American tribal casinos also still have the odds on their side, as the results of their form in 2017 prove so well, signing here a seventh year of growth …
American tribal casinos are indeed showing constant growth. We have seen that they always generate more money each year and it is not the figures for 2017 that will say the opposite, revealing to us this week that the whole industry generated no less than $ 32.4 billion in turnover. A very good figure which represents a growth rate of 3.9% over the previous year. If that doesn’t mean much to you, just imagine that this rate is above the results of Macau casinos in 2016!
