“It’s a whole new ball game starting tomorrow,” State Senator Chris Brown said on the eve of the official openings of Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and Ocean Resort Casino. “Thanks to defeating North Jersey casinos, Hard Rock and Ocean Resorts have invested in Atlantic City.”

Starting with Hard Rock’s guitar smash ceremony at 11 AM followed by Ocean Resort’s ribbon cutting at 1 PM, Atlantic City’s newest casinos represent a remarkable turnaround for the resort.
“Hard Rock and Ocean Resort bring fresh energy to Atlantic City by offering world class entertainment and restaurants which will attract more visitors. Just as importantly, they are creating 6,000 new jobs for our local families,” said Brown.
Both casinos have a full day of events, including fireworks, to celebrate their openings.
“This is something you don’t want to miss. If people want to play hooky from work to join the fun, I won’t tell,” said Brown.
“With our famous beach and boardwalk, nine world class casinos, classic local eateries, beach concerts, and now with sports betting, Atlantic City is a destination resort that has something to offer everyone,” said Brown. “The future of Atlantic City is very bright.”
