Atlantic City's newest casino is trying to address some problems that landed it in bankruptcy court less than a year after opening.

Revel will open a high-limits slots lounge and VIP club for high rollers on Friday. It's the kind of amenity to make big customers feel welcome that is common at other casinos but that has largely been missing since Revel opened 13 months ago.

The Pearl Lounge features 67 slot machines capable of accepting $300 bets at a time, plus four more bar-top video poker machines inside.

Revel's interim CEO Jeff Hartmann says the $3 million project is aimed at reconnecting with customers, as well as attracting new business.

The $2.4 billion casino resort is due to exit bankruptcy court next week.
