Much has changed in one year at Hard Rock, Ocean casinos

From ownership changes and restaurant closings to added gaming amenities and capital improvements, neither Hard Rock Hotel & Casino nor Ocean Casino Resort is the same today as when they opened June 27, 2018. For Ocean, the biggest change has been one in philosophy, said Mike Donovan, chief marketing officer and senior vice president. The property changed ownership in January when Luxor Capital Group, a New York-based hedge fund that had been one of the principal investors, assumed control.
