Revel will be closing down on Sept. 10. What a shame to have to close down a beautiful property..

Adios AC. That city is the new Detroit. Ghosts buildings in every block.

I bid one dollar, Bob.

I never went there but when I was told the casino wasn't located on the street level but on the second-floor, I immediately thought that would be a problem!

FWIW, here's my review of Revel.

Having been to the Revel, I thought it was a beautfiul property that was doomed from the start - It was a gorgeous property, but many people were confused that it was a casino when it opened, due to the lack of signage on the boardwalk.

I certainly hope that as we approach slow season that we don't end with a death spiral - things close due to the new casino closures, which drives down business on the boardwalk, which in turn could lead to more closures. Because the marina casinos are removed from the boardwalk, I think they have a chance to thrive as a cluster of their own, but I truly wonder what will happen to the remaining ones on the boardwalk.

Yeah AC gaming revenue down another 7 pct in July as compared to July 2013. Revel second from the bottom in front of only Trump Plaza. Yeah, you do have to wonder how many folks even realized it was a casino. What a shame for a great property. So in mid-September we could be down to five places on the Boardwalk.....Trop, Caesars, Ballys, Resorts (don't even see how this place stays around), and the Taj. Mind boggling.

Closing earlier now. Hotel shutters on morning of 1 September, casino on afternoon of 2 September. Between Revel and Showboat, Labor Day is gonna be a bummer for AC.

Revel apparently lost $20k off the top of an armored truck. Never a good sign.

I hope it fell off the truck and into the hands of some rank-and-file casino workers.
