Ocean Resorts Gets Special Hearing for Casino License

With just less than a week before the former Revel Casino reopens its doors as Ocean Resort Casino, the operator’s management is already taking the necessary steps to make sure everything goes according to plan. The casino has also been granted a June 20 hearing that if goes well will see to it that it is granted the necessary paperwork ahead of its planned June 28 launch date.

The hearing which was announced and scheduled by the New Jersey Control Commission will begin at 1 p.m. – in case there are any pending issues, the commission also allocated time for a second hearing the following morning.

“This isn’t just a technicality. Being awarded a casino license is a very major step,” said Daniel Heneghan, the New Jersey Casino Control Commission’s spokesperson. “We will hear testimony and they will discuss their plans to attempt to meet the burden of operating a casino, after which the commission will deliberate and make a decision.”

The Ocean Resort Casino management team is confident that the hearing will go well and that the launch date will be every bit as epic as recent reports and a media tour have brought us to believe. If the casino is approved for the casino license on June 20, then it will proceed to hold operation tests – this will involve the participation of a select number of guests who will get to test the different areas of the casino floor in front of the Division of Gaming Enforcement.

“It’s been a whirlwind of a year from the transaction to purchase from Glenn Straub, and this is the final capstone. It’s been a long journey, but we’re very excited to see the finish line and open the property and bring a great venue back to Atlantic City,” Jordan Deifik, the Ocean Resort Casino CEO said.

Sports Betting to Be a Major Highlight

It has been confirmed that a sportsbook is right in the middle of the Ocean Resort Casino gaming floor. This is not a usual thing but the team behind the revamped casino believe that it presents a whole new dimension that will appeal to both customers of low-income levels and the big spenders.

“Quite frankly, the energy around a sportsbook is arguably the most exciting component of any casino,” Seth Schorr, the Ocean Resort Casino advisor said. “As a person who grew up in the Las Vegas casino business, it’s often hard for me to even imagine a casino without a sportsbook. I think that Atlantic City will benefit greatly to having that added experience to all of its casino resorts.”

Ocean Resort Casino will also include a 100 table games and 2,200 slots machines on its 138,000 –square-foot gaming floor, six swimming pools, 16 different dining options, and a 160,000-square-foot indoor meeting space among many others. All this considered, there is definitely so much to look forward to.
