How to Celebrate New Years at Atlantic City and Philly Area Casinos
The last night of the year has historically been a major profit accelerator for casinos, as their most opulent annual bacchanals have typically been the New Years holidays for what are commonly referred to as the “big players”.
But the hoi-polloi are never ignored: non-players (and those with modest budgets) have always enjoyed headlining parties and / or performances. And while last year’s festivities were torpedoed by COVID-19, this December 31 will see a return to the old ways.
