Due to factors like rising hotel prices and no-smoking policies, Atlantic City has been seeing a significant drop in gaming revenue. However, for those looking for a cleaner gambling environment around more affluent gamblers, this might be the perfect time to head there.
Atlantic City has released its gambling results for September revealing a 6.3% decline in casino revenue to $276 million, compared with $295 million for the same month last year. Overall, Atlantic City’s 12 casinos saw slots revenue fall by 3.2% to $198.4 million, while table games were down by 13.6% to $77.6 million during the month.
Worryingly, in September only the Golden Nugget, which underwent a $150 million renovation last year, saw its revenue rise, on this occasion by 8% to $11.5 million.
