Has anyone been to the Atlantic Club since it transitioned away from being the Hilton? I'll be in AC between Xmas and New Year's and it looks like they have at least a couple promotions that might make it worth stopping in. I heard the mins were really low for AC ($5 blackjack, $3 craps, $10 mini baccarat), and they had a lot of penny slots. If it's a dump, I'll just stay to collect my free slot play. I wonder if they still have that "hidden" second floor casino with all the Asian table games....

They did a pretty good job with the place. It doesn't look very different from before, but it's clean and reasonably busy, considering.

Been there several times since the transfer from Hilton, some thoughts:

Pros:
Low Table Minimums
Free Parking
Good Locals Casino
Players club card is good for discounts/comps at some local non-casino establishments.

Cons:
Way at the south end of the boardwalk. I'd drive not walk, unless you are as far down as the trop. already.
Small Casino, it's clean and remodeled but still not fancy..it's just plain. Same layout as before.

Summary: It's not worth a special trip. Unless low limits are your primary concern, and then it is probably your best bet in AC. Hidden 2nd floor casino was closed last time I was there. Looked like they were remodeling. Might be open now.

Thanks, I'm staying @ the Trop (comp nights), so I figured it's worth a look at least. Figured I might as well check out Revel too, I've heard their table mins are $10 or so, really low considering it's the newest (and presumably one of the nicest) places there.

If you are staying at the Trop. then yeah it's worth a look, and close by. Just FYI the Trop usually has a party pit Thurs-Sat nights with $5 minimums, so that might work for you too.

The Revel is worth a trip(but far from the trop), it's a really spectacular property. Just a crappily run casino. Most tables are $25 in the evenings. You might have some luck with $10-$15 tables during the day.

Good Luck..Enjoy.

Yeah, I might just swing through Revel to check it out...do they give away any free play to new members? I had heard minimums were mostly $10 and they couldn't even fill tables at those rates.

I have to hand it to the Trop for treating players right, though. Between frequent free play, generous free rooms, reasonable table mins, and a decent poker room with nicely-priced tourneys, they're my favorite in AC. Now, if they could just get the table games area renovated and out of 1983 they'd be doing great, haha.

Revel DID have a promo that they Match Your Tier and give you a set amount of Free Play based on the level($25 for Level 2, $50 for Level 3,etc.)

But I don't think they have it any more, could be wrong though. Definitely worth going to just to check it out and try your luck. Table Lowest mins are $15 on Fri. & Sat. and $10 weekdays and early Sunday. But the layout is VERY tough to navigate and there are several pits that can confuse you during your first visit. So if you have time to kill, then Revel is the place.

As for Atlantic Club, it is definitely the "Old Timers" casino with low mins($5 even on Weekend nights) and everything in the same general area. Despite the re-model, it is still the same place and they have promos for "Inactive Members" where they give you $25 slot dollars if you haven't played there in 11 months. Then another $25 on your next visit after 72 hours. The catch is, you have to play $25 cash first before they give you the free slot money. I think they also have the Match Your Tier promo going.

Best bet, check both Casino's websites and look in the promotions link. Print out the page and bring it with you in case they try and weasel out.

But either way, it's worth a visit and should make your trip more interesting for next time!

Thanks for the information. Looks like Revel is definitely worth a visit, especially since it's 100% smoke free. If the limits are $10 midweek, which is when I'll be there, I'd definitely play some.

Personally, I like my gaming fun and unpretentious, so I tend to like casinos like Atlantic Club and Tropicana (the last few times I was @ Trop, they were throwing $5 craps games on Friday nights). Honestly, Caesars AC and Trump Taj might be my least favorite casinos in AC, simply because they charge Borgata-like limits but they're not Borgata-quality. Then again, Caesars LV charges higher limits than Bellagio across the street, and it's not nearly as nice IMHO as Bellagio.....

I've been there a few times since it became ACH. It's small but nice.

Played at Revel on Pearl Harbor Day and the next day. Minimums were $5 through suppertime. Then except for one reserved table at $200, $10 through 11:30 p.m., when the young nightclub crowd showed up and all the tables went up to $15. The $200 went to $500. Didn't matter because the two bettors were $700 or so each of their two or three numbers. Surprisingly no barriers for a spectator, except extremely discreet security.

The next morning all the tables ran at $10. Friendly crews. Some bettors are still pushing for 5X instead of 3, 4, 5.
