Revel Casino In Atlantic City Plans Elaborate Opening With Beyonce

Atlantic City officials have been waiting for a buzz that could help revive the city's gaming industry. Over the past several years, the city has lost its clout among gamblers, with many choosing more convenient locations such as Maryland or Pennsylvania.

Enter the new Revel casino. The multi-billion dollar gaming and entertainment destination is being looked at as the savior for the AC gaming industry, and Revel has assured that at least during the weekend of its grand opening, all eyes and ears will be again on Atlantic City.

Technically, Revel will open its doors for the first time in the beginning of April, but it will be Memorial Day weekend when all the grand opening festivities will take place. Beyonce, one of the hottest musical acts in the world, will help bring customers in during the opening when she plays concerts on May 25th-27th. The concerts will serve as a way to introduce music fans to the new casino resort.

Revel will offer visitors 1,100 hotel rooms, with several dining and entertainment options for vacationers and locals alike. The casino is also responsible for adding over 5,000 employees to the New Jersey workforce. That figure is one that many New Jersey residents are glad to see.

"It's been a rough couple of years here in Atlantic City," said longtime resident Bruce Frank. "To know that the casino can help both bring people back to the Boardwalk and put others back to work, is great. This is something Atlantic City has needed after the recession, and I hope it really does work in bringing people back."

New Jersey is expected to lose their designation as the top gaming market on the East Coast by the end of this year. Pennsylvania, by many analysts' predictions, will surpass New Jersey in terms of overall gaming revenue by the end of 2012. Casino executives in Atlantic City are hopeful that Revel helps buck the trend of gamblers traveling to Pennsylvania to enjoy casinos.

Since the economic recession, many lawmakers around the US have turned to casino gambling to help revive their economy's. Atlantic City and Las Vegas have had to deal with the brunt of that expansion, losing hundreds of millions of dollars in gaming revenue to other states.
