Bright Light for Atlantic City’s Waning Economy

Written By Janice Doughtrey

As the economic downfall continues to beat negative consequences for the local gambling market, Atlantic City prepares for a new era of gaming. Casinos in the gambling destination have recently launched their mobile betting applications, which is hoped to increase revenue after the city saw a slide in profits from last year.

According to recent reports, Atlantic City revenue continues to decline. Recent reports show that the gambling destination has raked in 6.3% less in profits than it had in the previous year. The results are unfortunate, as Atlantic City struggles to get back on its feet after the economic downturn threatened business.

However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. New Jersey has recently passed a legislation allowed handheld gambling devices to be used in Atlantic City casinos. This week, they were introduced to the gaming floor, and casino operators believe that they will bear positive consequences for their businesses.

The devices allow players to gamble from anywhere in the casino. From bars to restaurants and even hotel rooms, patrons can gamble on the go and experience the benefits of mobile casino games and betting activities.
