Sandy Comparison Boosts Atlantic City Casino Revenue 27 Percent

Atlantic City’s casino revenue increased by more than 27 percent in November.

But the gains were only because Superstorm Sandy forced the casinos to close for nearly a week last November.

The 12 casinos won $224.7 million last month, compared to $176.6 million in November 2012 when the storm closed the casinos for most of the first week of the month. And for many weeks after they reopened, business was down severely as customers tended to their storm-damaged homes.

The storm hit on Oct. 29, 2012.

Atlantic City’s casino revenue for October of this year was up 3.6 percent.

This marks the first two-month winning streak for Atlantic City since August and September 2006, just before the first Pennsylvania casinos opened nearby.
