The competition between the Ocean Resort Casino and the Hard Rock Atlantic City as the former now has announced they will open on the same day.
All eyes have been on the state of New Jersey as of late due to two new gaming venues set to open this summer. Hard Rock International is preparing to open the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City on June 28th, with the casino being located in the former Trump Taj Mahal. AC Ocean Walk is preparing to open the Ocean Resort Casino, a venue located in the former Revel Casino property. Surprisingly, Ocean Resort has now announced they will be opening on the same day as their new competitor.
Confirmed Opening Date
Once the Hard Rock Atlantic City announced their opening date, speculation began as to when Ocean Resort Casino would open their doors. It was rumored that the casino would open at the same time as their competitor and it seems those rumors are true.
In a press release on the matter, Bruce Deifik, the AC Ocean Walk chairman stated:
The predicted opening date was first rumored due to employee contracts that were found by the Press of Atlantic City. The contracts had dates listed that showed an opening for June. Now that the property is officially going to open on the same day, Atlantic City is sure to be abuzz as players visit both venues to see what each will offer.
Ocean Resort Casino Amenities
When the Ocean Resort opens, it will be home to 1,399 guest rooms, each offering an amazing view of the ocean. Guests can spend free time away from the gaming tables enjoying a swim in one of six pools or relaxing in a poolside cabana.
The casino portion of the property will be home to 138,000 square feet of gaming space. The floor will include hundreds of gaming options along with quality loyalty programs. Players who have the funds will find the property also offers private gaming lounges where the ocean and Boardwalk can be seen from large windows.
The property will also include 16 dining areas, providing players with plenty of choices when it comes to mealtime. Such options include the Ocean Buffet, Wahlburgers and more. Along with the dining options, players will have access to entertainment. TopGolf Swing Suites will be open for business in June along with retail shopping and the Hyatt Hotel Exhale Spa.
Ocean Resort CEO Frank Leone commented on the upcoming opening date by stating that the venue is looking forward to June 28th as a culmination of the planning phases and know that the date will be a special day for Atlantic City as a page is turned on a new chapter involving the revitalization of the region.
Now that we know Ocean Resort Casino will be opening on the same day as the Hard Rock Atlantic City, all eyes will be on the region come June 28th. It will be interesting to see if one venue outperforms the other, but most likely visitors to the area will be visiting both casinos to see what each has to offer.
