US – Ocean Resort to open June 28 in Atlantic CityBy Phil - 8 May 2018
AC Ocean Walk, the owners of the 1,399-room Ocean Resort Casino, gathered the extensive team already hired to date by the new resort this afternoon to formally announce that the $3bn, landmark property will open its doors to guests on Thursday, June 28, 2018.
“We are thrilled to share this exciting news with you and would like to thank each and every one of you for being a part of the Ocean Resort Casino extended family and our debut in Atlantic City,” said Bruce Deifik, the Chairman of AC Ocean Walk. “It was important for us to share this news with you directly, as the team here at Ocean, both as part of our family and as a part of the wonderful community that is Atlantic City that will continue to play an integral role in our future success. For that, we are extremely grateful to each of you.”
The 6.4msquare-foot Ocean Resort Casino has been undergoing a property refresh overall, as well as targeted updates or modifications to specific items in order to prepare additional spaces to house the expanded offering the property will provide when it opens this Summer. Further, the launch of the property as Ocean Resort Casino will include setting forth new policies, procedures, and ease of access features related to the guest experience, many of which were created with consideration of the items noted by the previous clientele of the property to be detractions to the overall experience being a prime focus to address. Since it was purchased in January, these projects have created 300 construction jobs and related positions at over 90 local companies. It is anticipated that by the time of opening, Ocean Resort Casino will have created 3,200 full time jobs.

“We look forward to June 28 as the culmination of all of our planning and know that this will be a special day for Atlantic City as it turns the page on a new chapter of revitalization,” said Frank Leone, CEO of Ocean Resort Casino. “Everyone has been so incredibly positive and supportive of the changes that have been discussed relative to the property and our team is committed to providing a tremendous customer experience for all of our guests. We cannot wait to reveal what we have been working on for them.”
At opening, Ocean Resort Casino will feature a 138,000-square-foot casino,
