“Eerily empty!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I had breakfast upstairs with 5 other friends. We spent $300 on eggs and coffee?? It was not worth it. The place is huge. It is non-smoking throughout which is a huge plus, but it's just empty and the staff didn't seem as friendly as other casinos. One gal actually had trouble directing me to the ladies room. Maybe they will get better with time, but I won't be back...

“Revel, what a failure.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The locals had such high expectations. Turns out, The whole concept is poor. The layout. The signage, or lack thereof, The pricing is over the top, No Smoking. Really, you alienated an entire demographic of high rollers. When they loose alot of money, they like to smoke. However, the convert venue is the only reason worth visiting.

“Tiesto NYE”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went to see Tiesto perform at Ovation Hall on NYE, and it was pretty amazing. The concert hall wasnt too large, but still big enough to not feel overly crowded. And the sound system and lighting were fantastic.

“Its just OK......”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We have been hearing great things about the Revel...I have been watching its growth over the past few years when we go to AC. So my wife and I went there on a recent trip to AC to check it out.......The outside is beautiful and inviting I think what a great start, however when you go inside its dark with heavy wood acents, so we walked around to see what they had. The average mix of games with some new slots in the mix, the place was not busy at all. I found my favorite game Sex & The City cascading reels.....I became addicted to it in LV.....so we played and won...........nothing and that trend continued for the time we were there.....we could not win a nickle......I understand that you dont win all the time however when you literally dont win a dime on any machine its not a good thing.. Dont believe the hype stay at Harrahs its much better.
