"We regret the impact this decision has on our Revel employees who have worked so hard to maximize the potential of the property," Revel said in a statement Tuesday. "We thank them for their professionalism and dedication; however we are faced with several unavoidable circumstances.

Revel said it still hopes to find a buyer through the bankruptcy process. But it acknowledged that if that happened, it would be after the facility had already shut down.
Since 2006, when the first Pennsylvania casino opened, Atlantic City's casino revenue has fallen from $5.2 billion to $2.86 billion last year.
The company said its situation was compounded by a "considerable non controllable expense structure" that financially burdened the property. It said it had no choice but "an orderly wind down of the business at this time."
Matthew Levinson, chairman of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, called the closing "enormously disappointing," but held out hope for a future sale.

Revel's most recent Chapter 11 filing listed assets of $486.9 million and liabilities of $476.1 million.
"I sincerely hope that possibility materializes, especially for the employees who face the loss of their jobs," he said.
In addition to putting 3,100 people out of jobs and hurting state and local budgets, Revel's demise shows just how cutthroat the East Coast casino market has become, and how difficult it is for even the newest and nicest gambling halls to survive in an oversaturated market.

Revel Entertainment said the casino and its 1,399 hotel rooms will close on Sept. 10, never having turned a profit.
Revel opened in April 2012 as the first new casino in Atlantic City since the Borgata opened nine years earlier, and carried great hopes for many that it would be the catalyst to jolt what had been the nation's second largest gambling market back to life. Atlantic City has since slipped to third place behind Nevada and Pennsylvania, whose casinos touched off the New Jersey resort town's revenue and employment plunge in 2007.
But despite some improvement, Revel's finances never recovered enough, and it filed for bankruptcy a second time in June.
Its original owners envisioned it as a luxury resort that just happened to have a casino, and eschewed many staples of casino culture, including a buffet and bus trips for day trippers.
