As of this writing (March 2019), several casino industry sites are not recommending visitors wager via the Ocean Resort Online Casino.
According to published reports, the company is almost $23 million underwater just seven months in operation. The online casino also wasn’t meeting compliance guidelines going back to November, according to the Casino Control Commission.
The Luxor Capital Group has recently been named as the majority stakeholder of Ocean Resort Casino and is making a $70 million investment in the seaside casino hotel and, we assume, to its online product. The deal was made at the end of January 2019, and Luxor has to wait up to 120 days for interim licensing approvals.
When Ocean Resort Online Casino opened in June 2018, it carried a smaller-than-average amount of games but offered a large welcome bonus ($10,000). But even on opening day, there were cautionary tales about making sure bettors read the terms and conditions before claiming the bonus.
The site is still offering nearly 200 slots, including Big Prize Bubblegum and Flowers, with weekly leaderboard battles. They also have 10 table games and jackpot slots.
Though the casino reported $8.4 million in revenue at the end of 2018, there is no online sportsbook to play yet.
Luxor named a new management team of Terry Glebocki and Eric Matejevich, formerly officials at Tropicana Atlantic City and Atlantic Club, respectively, and outlined specific improvements to the casino but has yet to say how that will affect its online footprint.
“As we move forward with enhancements to the guest and player experience — including substantial increases in our entertainment programming and player events throughout the year, adding a world-class buffet, additional suite and rooms, incremental investments on the casino floor and other exciting projects — Terry and Eric’s expertise will be invaluable in continuing our momentum.”
