Atlantic City, NJ, April 16, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Atlantic City casinos and local business revenues have always skyrocketed, increasing each year, until now. Annual revenues for Atlantic City is projected to decline this year, for the first time ever. A number of factors play into this expected decline in revenues. Atlantic City currently faces increased competition from slot parlors in neighboring states, such as Delaware and Pennsylvania, as well as the closing of one of the city's casinos. It is also uncertain how much the new smoking ban will impact gaming revenues in Atlantic City.
Revenue figures released for the month of March are already down from 2006, triggering concerns that this could be the start of a trend that would carry forward through the rest of the year. If revenues do face a long-term decline, it would have negative consequences for both Atlantic City casinos and local businesses.
