Atlantic City Will Soon Lose More Customers To Pittsburgh Casino
Atlantic City is known for one thing and one thing only, their casinos. That is why the city is in danger of losing the only identity it has with new casinos going up in many East Coast states.
Pittsburgh is also known for one thing and one thing only, the city's NFL franchise, the Steelers. Although Pittsburgh won themselves another Super Bowl this past season, times are also changing in the Steel City.
A new casino that has been in the works for a long time is just now finally being completed. There is a good chance that the casino will change the future for both the area in which it resides and also Atlantic City.
It was only a few short years ago when Atlantic City had a plan to return back to their glory days when people would come from all across the world to gamble in their casinos. New casinos were planned, and existing casinos were ready to renovate.
Then the credit crisis happened. The grand plans went down the tubes and many of the existing casinos are now in bankruptcy. With new luxury casinos going up, it may not be long until Atlantic City crumbles under the pressure.
One of the biggest supporters to the casino industry in Atlantic City, Donald Trump, removed himself from the Board of Directors in the company that bears his name. It is a sure sign of the direction of the Atlantic City casino industry. Trump Entertainment owns three of the eleven casinos in AC.
The Pittsburgh casino will only add to the torment. Philadelphia Park is already taking customers away from New Jersey, and other expansion in Pennsylvania only speeds up a process that many experts have been predicting for years. The end of the Atlantic City casino empire.
