Atlantic City-based casino The Borgata is planning to reopen this month, becoming the last land casino in the city to reopen their doors after the Covid-19 pandemic shut down the industry earlier this year.
The Borgata is owned by MGM Resorts International, and is the most successful land casino in Atlantic City, which itself is the second-largest gambling market in the United States. The casino said that they plan to open on July 26th with limited access initially, but with wider access likely to come later on. There are nearly 2,000 hotel rooms at The Borgata as well as 106,000 square feet of gaming and event space, so it’ll be necessary for staff to work around the clock to keep the facilities clean.
Commenting on the decision Borgata COO Melonie Johnson said, “Following the Governor’s directive to postpone indoor dining, we took a step back to reassess our reopening date to ensure we could give our guests the world-class experience they expect from us, safely.
“When we reopen, Borgata will introduce new outdoor dining experiences, as well as a convenient takeout programme from several of our fine and casual dining outlets. We appreciate our guests’ and employees’ patience and understanding and look forward to welcoming them back.”
