We always knew that there is something super special about Atlantic City and now we have proof.

The Golden Nugget Atlantic City is very close to making history!

According to PressOfAtlanticCity.com, the South Jersey hotspot, "could be the first ever land-based casino in the country whose internet gaming revenue matches or exceeds earnings from tables and slots." 

Experts are predicting that eventually, online gaming revenue will completely surpass revenue made from casinos themselves. Could you imagine?

“It would surprise me if it happened during the busier summer months, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see online revenue surpass retail revenue as soon as October,” said Steve Ruddock, lead online gambling analyst for PlayNJ.com.

Kind of crazy to imagine that the world of gambling could drastically change within the next few years.

Should Atlantic City residents be worried about overall business if former visitors can scratch their gambling itch online? Something to think about.
