Governor Christie Announces Reopening of Atlantic City Casinos 
Trenton, NJ – This morning, Governor Christie announced that he is rescinding 
an order that closed Atlantic City casinos in preparation for Hurricane Sandy, 
while also lifting the mandatory evacuation order for Atlantic City residents. 
The Governor was notified by Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David 
Rebuck that the order reinstating certificates of operation for the twelve 
casinos was signed within minutes of the Governor’s lifting of the mandatory 
evacuation order for the residents of Atlantic City, originally issued on 
October 27, 2012.  
The order grants the casinos permission to recommence casino gaming and 
wagering activities on Friday, November 2, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. Division 
investigators and personnel have been assigned to each property to ensure 
compliance with internal control procedures and to complete a final 
authorization to commence operations.  
“The Director has indicated that a complete review and assessment of the status 
and condition of each casino property, including the casino floors, its 
equipment, surveillance, security and gaming related computer systems have been 
completed,” said Governor Christie. “I have extreme confidence in Division of 
Gaming Enforcement staff as they begin the re-opening process of gaming 
operations in Atlantic City.”  
“This has been an extremely difficult time for the City of Atlantic City and 
the State of New Jersey," said Division Director Rebuck. “The cooperation of 
Governor Christie, state and local officials and the casino executives has been 
outstanding and we commend all those who have responded and worked with our 
staff throughout the events of Hurricane Sandy.”  
“Maintaining the integrity of casino operations is paramount. We will continue 
ongoing dialogue with the properties to ensure a smooth and cohesive re-opening 
as quickly as possible," said Rebuck. 
A copy of the order is attached to the release.
