Atlantic City, NJ (January 18, 2022) – Ocean Casino Resort will begin construction in March of a new venue that will blend an entertaining bar, lounge, and gaming experience with sports wagering. Following last year’s $15 million casino floor redesign, today’s announcement confirms Ocean’s position as the East Coast’s premier gaming destination. The $4 million concept is scheduled to make its debut this summer with trading management services provided in partnership with USBookmaking, a subsidiary of Elys Game Technology, Corp, pending regulatory approval from New Jersey’s gaming regulators.
“As Ocean continues to strengthen its position within Atlantic City, we are steadfastly dedicated to property growth and development,” said Bill Callahan, Interim Chief Executive Officer for Ocean Casino Resort. “We are excited by the new venue’s central location and the ability to advance our product with an innovative experience for our guests to enjoy. Partnering with USBookmaking allows us to capitalize on their expertise to bolster our land-based wagering product.”
More information, including timeline, concept, and design details, will be announced later this year. Ocean previously announced a resort reinvestment of more than $75 million over this year, featuring the highly anticipated addition of more than 460 guest rooms and suites. This comes on the heels of Ocean’s 2021 property improvements.
