In less than a week, the public will get a sneak preview of the highly anticipated opening of the $2.4 billion Revel Resort and Casino in Atlantic City.  Tomorrow, Governor Chris Christie gets a tour.

The mega-resort has created nearly 5,000 jobs and is the first casino to open in Atlantic City in nearly a decade,  following the opening of the Borgata in 2003.

The property will feature 14 restaurants, 55,000 square feet of retail space and 10 pools.   The casino floor will spread out over 130,000 square feet, with 2,400 slot machines and 160 table games, with a poker room one floor higher featuring 37 tables.

Revel’s soft-opening on April 2nd,  is the start of an eight-week preview period.  A grand opening celebration takes place Memorial Day weekend, where Beyonce will be the scheduled performer.
