The $2.4 billion Atlantic City casino formerly known as Revel reopened in late June with an eight-table poker room. On Tuesday, state officials released the latest data on the state’s poker market.

According to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, the casino now known as Ocean Resort Casino AC took in $89,000 from its poker tables last month.

The room trailed Borgata ($1.97 million), Harrah’s ($265,000), Bally’s ($252,000), Tropicana ($209,000) and Golden Nugget ($104,000) among the brick-and-mortar rooms.

Ocean Resort Casino, which closed in 2014 after about two years in business, didn’t previously have a poker room. Revel once tried to become the destination for high-stakes poker on the East Coast. However, it closed its 37-table poker room in 2013.

Denver-based Integrated Properties recently bought Revel for $200 million from a Florida-based real estate developer who had acquired it in 2016 for just $82 million.

Also reopening in late June was Hard Rock Atlantic City, formerly the Trump Taj Mahal. The Taj had a poker room, but the rebooted casino opened without one.

Atlantic City is home to nine brick-and-mortar casinos.

The gambling hub’s live poker market was worth about $2.9 million last month. The online poker rooms approved by New Jersey generated $1.84 million in July.
