Revel tops $20M mark in August; AC up 12.6 percentSeptember 10, 2012 at 2:18 pmWayne Parry, Associated PressATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) – Revel broke the $20 million mark in casino revenues in August, and Atlantic City’s 12 casinos collectively saw their monthly revenue increase by 12.6 percent compared with a year ago. But no one was popping champagne corks just yet in the struggling seaside gambling resort: The comparison was to August 2011 when Hurricane Irene forced the casinos to close for three days. Revel, the city’s newest casino, increased its revenues to more than $20 million in August, up more than 14 percent from July. It has been off to a slow start since opening in April, and has remained stuck in eighth place each month in terms of casino revenues. Atlantic City’s casinos won nearly $314 million last month.Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
