Atlantic City casinos ready for the return of March Madness

ATLANTIC CITY -- One year after the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically changed our lives, the Casino Association of New Jersey (CANJ) announced that Atlantic City’s casinos are ready to celebrate the National College Basketball Championship throughout the month of March and safely welcome back more guests to the seaside resort destination. Atlantic City casinos have exciting offerings to enhance fans’ experience watching the unpredictable college basketball tournament.

“Atlantic City casinos are excited to safely welcome back fans to enjoy one of the biggest sporting events of the year,” said Steve Callender, President of the Casino Association of New Jersey (CANJ). “Leading up to the basketball tournament last year, Atlantic City seemed to be unstoppable. We were on a 21-month winning streak of revenue growth, our sportsbooks topped Nevada’s, and our diverse offerings were attracting new visitors. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the National College Basketball Championship was cancelled, stay at home orders were issued, and our casinos were closed for almost four months.”

“What a difference a year makes,” continued Callender. “We implemented wide-ranging safety protocols to safely welcome back guests and employees, our indoor dining capacity has increased, and curfew restrictions were lifted. We look forward to providing a sense of normalcy for our guests during this difficult time, while continuing to prioritize their health and safety through continued enforcement of mask and social distancing requirements. As the spring and summer seasons approach and the vaccine is distributed, we are optimistic about the future as we work to bring more people back to work and continue revitalizing Atlantic City’s economy.”

Governor Murphy recently announced that starting March 19, indoor dining will increase from 35 percent to 50 percent capacity, and Executive Order 230 will permit 50 percent capacity on the casino floor as well. He also signed Executive Order 219, lifting the 10:00 p.m. closing restriction. The casino floor remains open 24-hours a day, and food and beverages services can be available throughout the evening and overnight hours. Atlantic City casinos continue to implement comprehensive protocols developed in consultation with AtlantiCare to keep employees and guests safe.
