    Will new AC casinos survive the wnter?

    Now that the summer and beach crowd have left, will Ocean and HR survive the winter?
    PA has already drawn business from AC. NYC gamblers (a large group) face the loss of Academy Bus and other buses to AC, leaving Greyhound; GH has reduced service and scheduled return trips often don't run.

    I don't have an answer but I sure hope All the AC casinos survive!
    Obviously being located in a summer resort area has it's advantages & disadvantages...
    Good Luck to Atlantic City! .. May the doors remain open!
    Here with You! since 9/29/09

    Hard Rock was busy yesterday (Friday) morning. Borgata needs to watch carefully. That place has a chance to take their #1 spot.

    Wahlburgers opened this week at Ocean. When we walked past at 1pm Friday all the tables were full. There won't be enough tables during summer months.
    Ocean at least has tenants who are doing well; all the eateries seem to be busy enough (even in this off-season).

    Honestly get less and less impressed every time I go down to AC and as someone who doesn't drive, I doubt I will be going there much anymore with the buses stopping.

    There's a bus to Rivers in Schenectady but it's meh and despite gambling a decent amount I have received no offers.

    Jan DGE revenue reports show Bally SERIOUSLY struggling. $12M in B&M revenue, which is what Ocean brought in; but what would have been Ballys' salvation -internet gambling and sports betting- are dismal. No one in charge is even trying.

    Here we are, a year later, going into the second winter season. @Weezie and I were in AC yesterday for a half day (had non-casino thing to do too) and it was pretty hopping. We went to Ocean, Hard Rock, and Borgata only. All had gambling customers, and the eateries had customers too. Ocean randomly upgraded me to Black... no real reason; I've barely gambled there and haven't been there since Sept.
    So with that, I get a special area for free parking (spaces closer to the elevators) or free valet parking; comped rooms with resort fees waived; FP (I was given 75 yesterday); food credit (yesterday I was given 50), access to lounge(s) with no fee and IDK what else, I probably missed something.

    Revenue reports from NJ DGE for Nov (Dec will be up on Jan 15th) show people are still showing up this winter. Ocean brought in $20M which is a great turnaround for them (they still need to invest time and marketing in their OL casino as they lag FAR behind their peers and could vastly improve their revenue there but they have been bringing in $2M a month with Sports Betting). HR brought in $23M (and another $2.1M from internet and $500K Sports Betting). Compare Borgata's Sports Betting revenue for the month of $1.3M.
