Showboat Atlantic City to Close Aug. 31

The Showboat made nearly $2 million in gambling profits as of March 31, according to The Press of Atlantic City.

The Showboat Atlantic City Hotel and Casino, which generated nearly $2 million in gambling gross operating profit as of March 31, is closing at the end of the summer, The Press of Atlantic City reports.

The Showboat closes on Aug. 31 in what a local union president calls a "criminal act upon the citizens of Atlantic County," according to the report.

The closing follows the Revel's announcement last week that it would close Sept. 1 if it couldn't find a buyer, and the January closing of the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel.

Seems people want the practice of deed restrictions to stop because rumor has it they want to restrict the property to a non-casino if they sell it. People say it affects the property values and the City tax revenue in the future so it should not be allowed. Doesn't Ocean city have similar deed restrictions for alcohol sales? Maybe these proposed laws will end that?
