Most Atlantic City Casinos will reopen today, July 2nd after being closed for over 3 months due to the Corona Virus COVID 19. The reopening of casinos is not without restrictions however, and one casino, Borgota, has decided to wait until more favorable conditions are available before reopening their doors.
Beginning today July 2nd, all casino except the Borgate, Caesars, Bally’s and Harrah’s will reopen, with Caesars, Bally’s and Harrah’s opening tomorrow July 3rd. The Borgata at the tine of this article has not announced when it will reopen, only stating they will wait for better conditions and when restrictions are lifted before opening their doors once again. So what restrictions are keeping Borgata from opening?
Believe it or not, gamblers visiting the Atlantic City Casinos will not be able to smoke or drink while on the casino floor and occupancy is limited to 25%. Some gamblers may in fact like the no smoking policy, but Atlantic City tried such a ban a few years ago which only lasted for 20 days as visitors stayed away resulting in the smoking ban to be lifted. The no drinking policy will affect most visitors as it is not only alcohol being banned, but all drinks as casino visitors must keep their masks on at all times.
We ourselves will not be visiting Atlantic City even though we do miss the town, especially now in the summer months. Instead we will continue to play online at live dealer casinos which give you a close experience to actually playing at a land based casino in person. Live dealer online casinos allow you to play at a brick and mortar casino online being connected by a live streaming feed. Play popular games like blackjack, baccarat, roulette, super 6 and casino holdem with a real live person as the dealer.

We look forward to the day when we can visit Atlantic City again and enjoy a drink and a smoke while sitting at the tables, but until then we will choose to continue to play online where we are safe from the Corona Virus and can smoke and drink at our pleasure.
