Ocean Resort Casino

We're only three days away from two new Atlantic City casino openings, and the Press wanted to answer all questions for those who are looking to spend their Thursday night at either Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City and Ocean Resort Casino. 

How we got here: 

Hard Rock bought the former Trump Taj Mahal casino in March of 2017 from billionaire investor Carl Icahn. 

On Jan. 4, Glenn Straub sold Revel to AC OCEAN WALK, a group led by Colorado-based investor Bruce Deifik, for $200 million.

Entertainment: 

Artists Carrie Underwood and Pitbull will perform during Hard Rock’s opening weekend. Underwood will perform Friday and Pitbull will perform Saturday. Hard Rock will also feature stand up comedy with Howie Mandel's Comedy Club. Finally, the casino announced its 365 Live promotion where performers will take stages each day of its opening year. Jerry Blavat will be performing on the Boardwalk stage on Thursday. 

Grammy award-winning DJ Diplo will perform Ocean Resort Casino on Friday. Other performers include Kaskade and Jermaine Dupri on June 30 and Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano on July 1.

Games: 

Hard Rock has more than 2,100 slot machines and 120 table games spread out over 167,000-square-feet of gaming space.

Ocean Resort has nearly 2,000 slots and just about 100 table games on 131,000-square-feet of casino floor.
