Revel to close in SeptemberRevel se va inchide in Septembrie

miercuri, 13 august 2014

The Revel Casino Hotel is to close on September 10th with the loss of 3,100 jobs. The casino resort which only opened for business two years ago with a cost of $2.4 billion has never once turned a profit.

It was hoped that a delay in bankruptcy court hearings last week by company officials looking into a buyer for the casino hotel would uncover a suitor, but sadly the Revel’s board met on Monday 11th August, with the decision to close down the iconic glass-covered casino which is located at the north end of the Boardwalk.

In 2012 the Revel opened to much fan fair as it was the first casino to open on the famous boardwalk since the Borgata opened there in 2003 and many hoped it would boost the economy.

Since 2006 revenues in Atlantic City have plunged from an all time high of $5.2 billion to $2.86 billion in 2013.

The closure of Revel will be the second of four Atlantic City casinos to shut down this year as Atlantic City fortunes decline even further. Twelve casinos were once adorning the boardwalk now with The Showboat closing on Aug. 31, and Trump Plaza closing Sept. 16.Revel Casino Hotel se va inchide pe data de 10 Septembrie, astfel pierzandu-se si 3.100 locuri de munca. Casino-resortul deschis in urma cu doi ani a costat nu mai putin de $2,4 miliarde si nu a reusit niciodata sa iasa pe profit.

S-a sperat ca intarzierea audierilor de la tribunal in cea ce priveste falimentul, va oferi ragaz oficialilor companiei in incercarea de a gasii un cumparator pentru casino-resort. Din pacate membrii board-ului Revel s-au intalnit Luni 11 August si au decis inchiderea faimosului cazinou acoperit cu sticla situat in partea nordica a Boardwalk-ului.

In 2012 Revel a deschis cu mult fast primul cazinou de pe Boardwalk, dupa inaugurarea din 2003 a celor de la Borgata, sperandu-se ca odata cu aceasta inaugurare sa existe si o revigorare a economiei.

Din 2006 veniturile din Atlantic City au suferit o cadere de la un maxim de $5,2 miliarde la numai $2,86 miliarde in 2013.

Revel este cel de-al doilea cazinou dintr-un total de patru care se vor inchide anul acesta in Atlantic City. Doisprezece cazinouri dominau la un moment dat peisajul din Atlantic City, pe data de 31 August urmeaza a se inchide The Showboat care va fi urmat de Trump Plaza care isi va inchide luminile pe 16 Septembrie.
