Atlantic City in 32-month revenue slump

    Atlantic City’s casino revenue is in a nearly three-year slump. Numbers released today from April show the 32nd consecutive month of a decline in table games and slot winning, the Press of Atlantic City reports.

    The 11 casinos took in $289.4 million for the month, which is 7 percent less than last year. Monthly numbers began waning in fall 2008 when the economy took a turn, and the city continues to struggle to compete with other gambling destinations.
