First slot machines arrive at Atlantic City’s Revel Casino

    Things are moving right along at Revel, Atlantic City’s new casino.

    More than 300 slot machines arrived this morning at the facility, which is still under construction, as the Associated Press reports. The blank machines were carried into the building where they’ll later be tagged with all the necessary branding.

    Revel is set to open May 15, employ 5,500 people and have 1,100 hotel rooms. Building costs are estimated at $2.4 billion.
