    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!

    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.
