The degree of success achieved by Atlantic City's nine casinos in regaining the level of business they enjoyed before the pandemic will go a great way toward deciding the nature of the year 2023 for the NJ resort town.
A long-awaited water park that will be open all year round right adjacent to the Showboat hotel is one of the major new projects that are scheduled to debut this year. Plans also include substantial entertainment, lodging, and dining projects at a number of the city's casinos.
There are still significant concerns hanging over the city, such as the possibility of competing development plans for the land formerly occupied by Bader Field Airport. There is also the question of whether or not the state government would pass a measure to prohibit smoking in Atlantic City casinos. It is still unclear how these plans will affect NJ online casinos.
Bob McDevitt, president of Local 54 of the Unite Here union, which is the city's primary casino employees union, said, "I'm looking forward to the new year; we're past covid now." "Our industry has survived that, and with that kind of momentum growing, it could be a good year for the residents of the city and for the casinos."
