    Irene caused 20 percent drop in Atlantic City casino revenues

    In a near three-year slump, the Atlantic City casinos didn’t need the blow Hurricane Irene dealt.

    The storm forced the 11 facilities to close for three days, causing a 20 percent drop in revenue, the Associated Press reports.

    August revenue numbers were down 19.8 percent, breaking the March 2009 record low of a 19.4 percent decline. Slot machine revenue fell almost 21 percent and table games revenue saw a 17 percent decline.
