There is some big news for Atlantic City’s Hard Rock Casino Hotel. The Casino received its gambling license from the state of New Jersey. Just a week ago, the 3-member team unanimously approved the gambling license. The Hard Rock took to Twitter to publicly thank the Gambling Control Commission. Indeed, they commented. “Thank you to the Casino Control Commission for approving our casino license today. See you at our grand opening, Noon, June 28th!“
The Countdown to opening day started!
As you know, The Hotel and Casino are scheduled to open on June 28th. Only a year ago work started on renovating the former Trump Taj Mahal. The renovations budget is in the neighborhood of $500 million. The casino promises to offer lots of entertainment. The fact that they got their license is reassuring for the opening day.
Games and shows!
The Hard Rock Casino will have around 2100 slot machines. In addition to 130 table games. The entertainment schedule is fantastic, of course. Furthermore, the grand opening features Country singer Carrie Underwood (June 29th). And on the following day, the Cuban-American Rapper Pitbull (June 30th) will perform. Additionally, the entertainment budget for the first year is an impressive $30 million. So you can imagine the great acts that they have lined up for us.
Good for business and good for Atlantic City!
Additionally, the Hard Rock wants to build relationships with the locals. Therefore, community building is a big part of what is vital to Hard Rock. Overall, Hard Rock believes in the importance of a thriving community and local economy. The first retail partner is a local business, Bernie Robbins Jewelers, which will open a store in the Hotel. In short, the gold letters that spell out ¨Hard Rock¨ are up, and we are counting the days until the grand opening on June 28th. Everything is right on track, and everyone is looking forward to a fantastic summer at Hard Rock.
