The Story

Atlantic City’s open secret is finally confirmed: Colorado developer Bruce Deifik has agreed to buy the shuttered Revel Casino from owner Glenn Straub for $200m.


The reinvented casino is expected to open this summer.

The property will undergo renovation immediately after being dormant since September 2014, the second time that Revel declared bankruptcy. In a statement, Deifik said it's their “mission and vision to fully serve the customer base of Atlantic City” and “will make certain there is something for everyone at the Ocean.” There are also plans to launch a new “state-of-the-art sportsbook” should the U.S. Supreme Court rule favorably on the plans to allow wagering in Atlantic City casinos and racetracks.
