Ocean Casino Resort Announces a New Gaming and Sportsbook Venue
Ocean Casino Resort has given details of its new sportsbook and gaming area, to be called The Gallery Bar. This new venue, situated in Atlantic City, is the final part of an ongoing expansion that was announced last October. Then the press release stated there would be a $75m investment and a $25m redevelopment of the existing casino floor.
The Gallery, which will cost around $5m, is a sportsbook area of around 12,000 square feet. This will comprise a lounge and two bars, as well as casino gaming tables, slot machines, and six betting windows. The Gallery Bar will seat around 60 people and is set to open in the summer this year.
“Ocean is dedicated to being the premier gaming destination in the Atlantic City market,” said Bill Callahan, General Manager. He further added.
This new venue will enhance the guest experience by providing an unbeatable atmosphere right in the heart of the casino floor.
Last year the ownership structure of Ocean changed when Ilitch Holdings acquired a 50% stake in the casino for $175m. The costs for the current redevelopment have been met jointly by the partners.
Ocean has partnered with USBookmaking, which will provide the betting services for the six betting windows at the new Gallery Bar. Elys Game Technology, the parent of USBookmaking, was recently granted a six-month license to run the sportsbook at the new Gallery.
Set the stage for social gaming, big game nights, and an unforgettable after-hours experience.
