Published by Rizvi on

The Ocean Resort Casino of the New Jersey is undergoing into a business shift. Yeah we are going to see some other company taking over the Ocean Resort Casino working but as for the moment of time, we know nothing about the company going to take it all over.

For the approval of it’s shifting, the new Owner would get their approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement ( DGE ) which would in-turn reveal the identity of this ” mysterious entity ” who is now going to be the new owner of this casino.

It is being said that the company who is going to be the new owner of the Ocean Resort Casino is not a famous entity in the world of casino and gambling, yet all these remain guesses.

The Ocean Resort Casino was one the third of four casinos to completely shut down in New Jersey in the year of 2014.

According to the reports, the new owner of this property is going to invest $70 million for some upgrades

Bruce Deifik, the current owner of the Ocean Resort Casino announced in January 10, 2018 that he would be retaining a non-controlling ownership interest in Ocean Resort but an unidentified outside company would assume majority ownership after just six months of operation.

Although the idea of being handled to another owner just after six months of operation seems terrifying, this wasn’t the case when the district manger of Wahlburgers Cesar Cifuentes was interviewed.

“We don’t see that it’s going to affect us in a negative way,” Cifuentes said. “For us, nothing is going to change. We’ve been doing well, and I think we’re going to do better.”

While the name of the new owners continues to stay a mystery, we can have a look into the profile of the Ocean Resort Casino from the day it all started.
