I would assume most AC casinos are playing with "scared money". A good time to take advantage and win some money there.



IMO you are betting off getting them when they are desperate for big action, not when they are scared of it.

Yes, Bob, it's got everything to do with being non-smoking, and nothing to do with:

-- ridiculous mismanagement

-- No buses

-- Terrible loyalty program

-- Stingy room/comp offers at opening

-- OH AND DOZENS OF CASINOS OPENING IN EVERY STATE SURROUNDING NJ

Revel was only non-smoking for a little while. They didn't do any better once they allowed smoking. And not even close to "half" of AC casino patrons smoke.





And telling players they are "flagged in the system for disputing payouts"

The non smoking showed they were incompetent
and not connected to what it took to run a casino
in AC. It was the tip of the iceberg.

This doesn't matter. Two people, three people, maybe four people in a group, will go where the smoker can smoke. Heard this the other day from some old man talking about me as if I wasn't there whining to his wife, "there are more of us than them". I turned my head to the left and blew smoke his way and he was gone in 5 seconds.

I started carrying this little battery operated fan. If a smoker sits next to me and blows smoke my way I turn it on and blow it back. I have pissed off 7 people in 9 days. I only do it to the really obnoxious people who actually blow it in my direction or put the ashtray right next to my machine where the smoke had no where else to go. My next move is to get some kind of spray that smells like horrible b.o. and spray that as well.

Think it's the other way around. No qualified bidders just means nobody dumber than them. They still think they're sitting on gold after everything.

Yeah, it seems like many can't comprehend , especially when they see the limited # of rooms Revel ever finished "sold out"on summer weekends, they are bleeding $ each day , & the well is dry - as far as finding anyone stupid enuf to lend them more $ to remain open day to day .

It would makes sense to close the doors asap, & stop the bleeding, if no real buyer came forward by now.

It's easy for us to say they should try to stay open, but it's not our $ being flushed down the toilet every day.

Is anyone surprised by this?

Maybe a few "savvy" AC "destination experts" who mocked warnings , such as this, & claimed they possessed superior casino finance aptitude

WOW....I really thought the reason CET was closing Showboat was to bid on REVEL. They were basically going to trade an aging casino for a shiny new one. Made sense to me. I can't believe there wasn't one qualified bid. Wonder what a "qualified" bid would be. When I was there only a couple of weeks ago the employees seemed very optimistic that a buyer was going to emerge. Word on the street was either CET or Hard Rock.
