YEAR TO FORGET: REVENUE TOTALS DROP 9.6 PERCENT IN ATLANTIC CITY

The final gaming numbers for Atlantic City’s casinos for 2010 are out, and they are not good.  New figures released Monday afternoon by the Casino Control Commission show that the 11 casinos in Atlantic City have lost one third of their total business over the past four years.  In 2006, the casinos took in $5.2 billion; in 2010, that number dropped to just $3.6 billion.  Gaming experts blame both increased competition in other states and the recession.  Resorts was the big loser in 2010, dropping 19 percent of its total revenue.
