Showboat Gets OK to Close at End of the Month

Atlantic City’s first of three late summer casino closings will take place on August 31st at 4 p.m. After Showboat, Revel and Trump Plaza are next.

New Jersey gambling regulators have given approval to the Showboat Atlantic City casino’s closing on August 31st at 4 p.m. The casino first opened in 1987 and underwent a heavy renovation in 1995.

On the Showboat Facebook page, some reviews say service has declined in recent years, citing the management of Caesars. Then known as Harrah’s, the company purchased Showboat in 1998.

Two other casinos will close this year. Revel, Atlantic City’s newest casino, will shut its doors on September 2nd. Trump Plaza will close September 16th.
