4:45 pm
university. he was the ceo of a river boat gaming company, the first in the midwest. the market is said to be oversaturated in atlantic city. is that one of the reasons revel had so much trouble from the beginning? >> it's one of the reasons but not the only reason. it was the wrong casino for that market. atlantic city is a day tripper market. a lot of small bets. that sort of thing. revel was too over built. it was too much of a luxury property. it was a hotel trying to support a casino rather than a casino supporting a hotel. some of the things, for example, there was initially no smoking. gamblers want to smoke. there was no buffet. it was on the third floor, which is an imped iment to people getting there. in some ways revel was the wrong property for that market. >> so far, of course, as you know, four casinos have announced plans to close more. could more casinos follow suit in atlantic city in. >> anything is possible.
4:46 pm
i think as painful as it is for all of those workers and all of the people who are going to be affected, it's probably the only thing that's going to give atlantic city a chance to prevent another casino closing. because the market is contracting. the existing casinos hopefully should be able to absorb that amount of business. it's possible but this actually may help the situation. >> in the past few years atlantic city has seen increased competition from casinos in pennsylvania, delaware and maryland. is it likely those casinos will survive? >> it's highly likely they will survive. pennsylvania is a very different model than some of the other states. there's a limited number of licenses. there will be one more granted in the philadelphia area. that will have affect on existing casinos. could you see layoffs? i don't think so. think there's enough business in philadelphia in this market so that this should not happen there. delaware is going to face
4:47 pm
increasing pressure from maryland. that could create maybe a little less business. but i don't foresee that casino closing. >> there's reason for hope. sounds like revel was the wrong fit. thanks so much for coming in and talking to us, gaming professor at temple university. >> thank you. >> stay with nbc 10 for continuing coverage of the casino crisis. our live team coverage continues in just 15 minutes. don't forget to check out our special section on nbc10.com filled with updates on the casino clapgs in atlantic city. some of us are seeing heavy rain this afternoon. here is a live look at the arra d rad radar. it has been sitting in new
