I hope not. This would be a huge blow to the region if so many casinos were to close in Atlantic City.

Atlantic City has to do a better job at diversifying its market place. I still believe building the Revel was a huge mistake and I blame Gov. Christie for fully supporting it and wasting billions of dollars that could've went else in South Jersey. The last thing Atlantic city needed was another casino. There is already 18 casinos in the Philadelphia-Atlantic City area. I believe it's the 2nd largest in the country, trailing only behind Las Vegas.

I guess maybe this answers the debate about whether building all those casinos in PA was going to draw away business from AC. kinda sad.

It's just not the casinos in PA. Online gambling plays a big role on whether B&M casinos will survive (especially in Atlantic city). Original online gambling was basically poker but that's not the case anymore.

I like to gamble every now and again, but as long as Margate/Longport remain nice and classy, I'll get by.

"Frantic City, Frantic City - doctor's a plumber, yabba - dabba - doo." lol!

Between the PA casinos and online gambling, AC is going to become "Frantic" and an alternative as a "Wildwood north" sought of one day imho.

But most of those 18 are old, outdated, and cater to an aging crowd. But I agree they need to do more to attract more people. What that would be I have no idea? They have the advantage of being right on the beach, but that only helps in the summer. What will they do for winter? Maybe build another convention center or another sports arena. They can host obscure college sports like hockey, or wrestling, or soccer. How about legalize prostitution or narcotics use. I dont know.

But dont people also like to go out for an activity? Gambling isnt just about gambling. It has always been a way to go out, meet people, mix and mingle. That was the allure of it too, not just making bank.

How are the Casinos in PA? Are they like the Empire city, or the Resorts World in NYC? If so, then the competition is not too stiff. Turning Stone, Foxwoods, Mohegan, are not really something to write home about either.
