ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — When the sun comes up Monday morning, Atlantic City will have one more casino.
Revel, the city's 12th casino, will open with a sunrise champagne toast on a deck facing the ocean.
The $2.4 billion resort is being counted on to help revive the sagging fortunes of the nation's second-largest gambling market.
Revel had to overcome numerous obstacles in order to reach Monday's opening. Three key executives working on the project died in a plane crash, the project ran out of money during the recession, and it only got completed with the help of state tax incentives.
It is Atlantic City's only non-smoking casino resort and the only one to fully embrace the ocean, with floor-to-ceiling views of the coast that are considered a no-no in other gambling halls.
