Isn't there some famous quote about the Ides of March? Something about the death of Caesar?
I wonder how this will compare to the Icandy show at Bally's.
Seems in a bit of a rush to get open,Probally because revenues are up 24% statewide in Pa, Casinos!!!
The rush to open is more likely the millions they are paying in monthly taxes and expenses with no income coming in.
Moneywho, do you have a source for that 24% statewide increase in Pennsylvania? I read that statewide revenues were up by almost 14% year to date last month (mostly because of great weather and the addition of table games, which had not been approved in December of 2010). Where did you get the extra ten per cent? Overall for 2011, BTW, PA casino revenue rose just 6%, not 24%. And almost all of that is because of the addition of table games. LOL @ Rship1. "Beware the Ides of March."
My host left a couple weeks ago to take a job at Revel. I can't imagine them ramping up those jobs unless they expect to have customers coming in soon.
Slot machines are already arriving at the Revel.
Rship....great thought! It's possible!
They anticipate opening the casino a few weeks earlier than the original May 15th scheduled opening date according to sources.
As far as a March opening, that is probably for the talent because they have to start working on the choreography to be ready for opening night.
According to the article rehearsal starts Feb 3 and the show opens March 15. I guess they could be doing a soft opening with some parts of the resort being open and the casino opening later. I have no direct knowledge other then what was in the article.
