Atlantic City casinos take another dive in July
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - August 10, 2012 (WPVI) -- Atlantic City's newest casino has been making gains, but despite an improved July there was not nearly enough to keep the city's gambling industry as a whole from taking another hit.
New Jersey's Division of Gaming Enforcement announced Friday that the city's casinos won $308 million in July.
That's down 9.5 percent from July 2011 - a month that had an extra Friday and Saturday.
Some of the city's hopes for a turnaround have been pinned on the new Revel casino, which opened in April more slowly than many expected.
The new casino's gambling revenue grew to $17.5 million in July, an increase from $14.9 million from June. But the casino's revenue still ranks 8th in the city.
