Luxury mega-casinos to transform face of Atlantic City

The Revel Entertainment recently unveiled designs for the $2 billion casino to be built on the Atlantic City Boardwalk next to the Showboat Hotel-Casino, and said the project will debut earlier than had been planned. Five years from now, you might not even recognize Atlantic City, New Jersey.

A burst of new, luxurious mega-casino projects to be built by 2012 will transform the face of Atlantic City into a more futuristic — and crowded — gambling resort.

At least four companies are betting a combined $9 billion that the makeover will help Atlantic City catch up with Las Vegas as a place to come — and stay — for more than just gambling.

In early November, Revel Entertainment Group unveiled drawings of its new $2 billion casino-resort, to be called simply “Revel.” Due to open in the second half of 2010, at 710 feet, it will be the tallest building in Atlantic City — at least for a while.
