Revel casino revenue disappoints for June

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Revel remains stuck in eighth place among Atlantic City’s 12 casinos in terms of gambling revenue.

    Data out Tuesday shows New Jersey’s newest casino took in $14.9 million in June, its third month of operation. It won $13.4 million from gamblers in April, and nudged up only slightly in May to $13.9 million.

    The $2.4 billion casino resort is being counted on to help rejuvenate the struggling gambling market in Atlantic City, but has gotten off to a decidedly slow start.

    Atlantic City’s 12 casinos collectively posted a revenue decline of less than 1 percent in June, winning nearly $275 million.

    Borgata remained tops in revenue, with nearly $54 million in June.
