The Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City has announced that it will reinvest $15 million in the resort, its employees, and the local North Beach community in order to build on its recent success.
The property says it will continue to “up the ante this summer” with many updates to the casino floor, following the introductions of The Cove high-limit slot experience and The Loft private luxury gaming suite.
The facility will open two new guest lounges for Ocean Rewards cardholders, as well as a brand-new high-limit table games venue and Asian gaming room. Additionally, new pathways will be built throughout the casino to allow guests to easily navigate between games, which will include over 250 new slot machines.
In addition to improving Ocean’s gaming floor, the resort will expand a number of non-gaming facilities, such as pools and cabanas, the beach, culinary hospitality, and entertainment opportunities.
Progressive direction of movement
Terry Glebocki, chief executive officer for Ocean Casino Resort said: “Ocean’s interest in our people, product, and community is a testament to the progressive direction our property is moving toward as we enter into the summer months.
“As restrictions are lifted and we begin reopening additional areas of our business, I am thrilled at the opportunity to present our guests with an evolving gaming experience that is unique to the market.”
Additionally, Ocean and Luxor Capital Group will donate $50,000 to many local causes in addition to more than $1 million in annual salary raises and bonuses to qualifying team members.
Glebocki added: “With success comes responsibility, and there is no greater responsibility than doing what’s right. Thanks to the hard work, determination, and commitment of our team, Ocean had a successful 2020, allowing us to issue wage increases, as well as give back to our local North Beach community.”
This comes after Luxor Capital Group, the venue’s primary owner, announced that a relationship with the Ilitch organisation is being pursued earlier this month.
The plan would see the Ilitch organisation own up to 50 percent of the casino establishment through a subsidiary, with Luxor owning the remainder, subject to regulatory approvals and final closing conditions.
