ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CelebrityAccess) — Atlantic City's Revel Casino, the newest and most expensive gambling establishment in the city, commenced with its final 2-day shutdown process on Monday.
The casino and hotel, which cost $2.4 billion to build, was only open for two years, and has been at the center of financial turmoil since opening. The casino filed for bankruptcy twice over its short lifespan, and the owners of the property announced earlier this year that it would be closing after failing to find a buyer.
Revel officials declined to comment on the closing.
Revel is not the only casino to end their runs this month. The Showboat shuttered on Sunday and Trump Plaza will follow suit on Sept. 16th. More than 8,000 workers have lost their jobs in the wake of the closings.
