November 5, 2012
Trenton, NJ - With the re-opening of the Atlantic Club Casino
Hotel this morning, Governor Chris Christie and Division of
Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck announced that all
hotel operations and gaming activity at the twelve Atlantic City
casinos are back in operation.
“This has been an extremely difficult time for Atlantic City and
the State of New Jersey. With the re-opening of the casinos, the
employees and the residents can now move forward to welcome
visitors back to Atlantic City,” said Governor Christie.
On Friday, November 2, Governor Christie lifted the mandatory
evacuation order signed October 27, 2012 for Atlantic City.
Director Rebuck then signed an order allowing the casinos to
reopen at 10 a.m. Division investigators and State Police
personnel were on site at each property to ensure that the
gaming floors opened as soon as they were able to do so.
“I commend the casinos for working cooperatively with the
Division of Gaming Enforcement during this time of extreme
emergency,” said Director Rebuck. “As recovery efforts continue
in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, this reopening is another
important step and symbol in our state’s recovery and return to
normalcy for New Jersey residents.”
