Gaming analysts and experts offer strategies for Atlantic City to have a successful 2013

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTIC CITY – Experts say that the town once known only for gaming needs to broaden its strategies in the New Year.

Doctors Israel Posner and Brian Tyrrell of Stockton College have been conducting a long-term study of non-gaming revenue, and said that Atlantic City is going through something Las Vegas has already experienced, a serious increase in non gaming options and revenue. Already, 20% of revenue comes from non-gaming, and that's expected to increase.

In terms of gambling, NBC 40 spoke with Roger Gros, a gaming analyst who says that Atlantic City needs to take advantage of lower taxes than its out of state competition and raise payouts to make gaming in Atlantic City more attractive to gamblers.

Overall, all the experts we talked to say that Atlantic City needs a multi-pronged approach to establish itself as a complete resort destination, and ensure that 2013 will be a successful year.
