Revel Casino, Atlantic City’s latest mega-resort, may open its doors a few weeks early. Scheduled for a grand opening in mid-May 2012, the revived .4 billion project has seen a flurry of construction activity that could move its opening up to sometime in March, according to rumors spreading through the local media. Revel Casino is seen by many industry professionals and analysts as a catalyst to rejuvenate the struggling Atlantic City gaming market. The property’s focus on non-gaming revenues is considered a key element to the development of Atlantic City as a regional destination resort.
A beefed-up sales staff is conducting tours with prospective clients that would use the meeting and convention space for dates prior to the official grand opening.
