Atlantic City topped itself for all the wrong reasons yesterday, and posted a monthly revenue decrease that outdid its record 19.2 percent drop in February compared with the same month a year ago.
The seaside resort's 11 casinos reported a 19.4 percent decrease in March, the largest year-over-year decline in Atlantic City gambling's 31-year history, according to the New Jersey Casino Control Commission.
The casinos took in $318.4 million in March, compared with $395 million a year earlier.
