Atlantic City's Ocean Resort Casino Officially Announces June 28th Grand Opening

Hard Rock Chairman Jim Allen testifies before the NJ Casino Control Commission Alexis Johnson | NJ Advance Media for

Global casino developer Hard Rock Resorts has been awarded a casino licence in New Jersey by regulators, in a move which will enable it to reopen the former Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.

It will transform the 4.2 million square feet of defunct casino hotel space into a state-of-the-art casino, hotel, retail, dining and entertainment facility, aiming to increase employment opportunities, strengthening the faltering Atlantic City resort and by virtue the economy of New Jersey. "For that, we are extremely grateful to each of you". Since it was purchased in January, these projects have created 300 construction jobs and related positions at over 90 local companies. It was supposed to be a challenger to the Borgata in the ultra-glitzy casino category in Atlantic City, but it failed spectacularly (it didn't help that Atlantic City was struggling mightily at the time) and closed in September 2014. Go to HardRockHotelAtlanticCity.com for more information. "We are the only brand that works to bring people together through music".

The new resort casino, which is taking the place of the former Revel Casino, is set to open on June 28th.

"We could have re-carpeted and put some memorabilia up and that would have been fine but we made a commitment to making sure Atlantic City grows so it was important to make sure guests got to come see something completely new and re-done", Allen reportedly told the New Jersey Casino Control Commission.
