Revel Casino Crappin’ Out - My9 New Jersey

Revel Casino Crappin’ Out

Posted: Updated:
Atlantic City, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Two-years ago politicians said the $2.4 billion Revel Casino would save Atlantic City, but now they're filing their second bankruptcy and issued a letter to employees saying that if they can't find a buyer by the end of the summer thousands could be fired.

While employees of the casino are hesitant to speak on the topic, some guests like Rebecca say that business as usual for the hotel/casino is actually part of the problem.

“We were here two summers ago and it was fabulous, I think it was pretty new at the time and great. This year, definitely not up to speed for sure. It’s very very empty, not as clean as it used to be and just a little disappointed,” she shared.

Councilman Mo Delgado commented on whether or not the government should step in with more Revel aid to save the jobs and he said enough is enough.

“This company is a private entity they have tons of financial backers in the background that should have seen all this going on so for us to constantly bail this out it’d be a disservice to our communities who pay the taxes,” he said.

A spokeswoman for the Revel said that the letter warning employees of possible firing is just part of the bankruptcy sale process and Revel would continue as usual while looking for a buyer.

So after barely two-years and several hundred million dollars in tax credits, the Revel as well as Atlantic City tourism is dying.

Now the question becomes, whose job is it to save Atlantic City?

NJ Now host Jim McQueeny chimed in on this ongoing problem down-the-shore.

“The reality is that the private sector found their patsies it’s called government, if they had to invest by themselves with all their money, they wouldn’t have done it in recent years because of the competition, but they had government on their side either to protect votes or jobs and look good. They through the money in as a co-down payment and we’re not left to have to pick up the rest,” he said.
