December 2022 makes it about 45 years since the Casino Control Act got signed into law in 1977. It's also been 45 years since legalized gambling came to Atlantic City and New Jersey. The legalization of online gaming has significantly impacted NJ and Atlantic City as a whole.
In celebration of 45 years of legalized gaming, a group of top gaming officials, stakeholders, and executives held a panel discussion to discuss the impact of casino gaming in Atlantic City. It was an event held on December 8 at Stockton University's Atlantic City campus.
Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality, and Tourism (LIGHT) held the event in the Fannie Lou Hamer Event Room at the John F. Scarpa Academic Center.
