Report: No Qualified Bids for Revel

NBC 10 reports that no qualified bidders have emerged to purchase the Revel Casino in Atlantic City. That raises the possibility the troubled casino will […]

Revel — which tried to be a casino that wasn't really a casino by banning smoking and focusing on entertainment that didn't involve slots — is for sale. While the building is certainly gorgeous, it's also been a dismal failure. It opened in 2012 and filed for bankruptcy 10 months later. If it sells, that selling price will be an indication of Atlantic City's gambling market, which right now is about as healthy as smokers chained to slot machines at Revel right now. (They dropped the non-smoking policy in 2013, natch.) The Atlantic Club, formerly the Atlantic City Hilton, sold for a paltry $23.4 million to a Caesars/Tropicana partnership (in comparison: the Sands sold for $250 million in 2006). The Atlantic Club is no longer operating, and just last week Caesars, which is the dominant casino company in Atlantic City, said it might start shutting down properties. So don't expect the Revel number to be a blockbuster.
