15 July 2008

Gaming revenue at the 11 casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey fell to $373.6 million in June, an 11 percent drop compared to the same period last year, according to Atlantic City's Casino Control Commission.

"It's brutal," Carlos Tolosa, head of Atlantic City operations for Harrah's Entertainment, told "I believe it bodes ill for the rest of the year. I think we're in for tough times."

A smoking ban will take effect in Atlantic City casinos this fall.
