2 reopened Atlantic City casinos reshape market in 1st year

June 27, 2018, was a day this seaside gambling resort had long waited for. Two of the five casinos that had shut down over the past four years were reopening. The former Trump Taj Mahal was reborn as the Hard Rock, and the former Revel became the Ocean Resort Casino. Together they restored more than 6,000 of the 11,000 casino jobs that had been lost in the most brutal stretch Atlantic City’s casino industry had ever endured, though some have since been cut.
