While reports indicate that the number of visitors to Atlantic City may be down, experts say that based on a recent poll Atlantic City's future seems promising.
In a poll released today by the Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality and Tourism, 81% of New Jersey gamblers say they will visit Atlantic City as many times as they did last year, while 10% say they intend to visit more often. But the most promising indicator may be that the number of gamblers that intend to try online gaming is triple that of the number that have actually already used the casinos' internet gaming sites. The Director of the institute, which is located at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, says that these numbers are promising and that interest in online gambling is growing and should continue to grow. More than half of those surveyed support legalized sports betting.
