The Loft

Ocean Casino Resort wants to be a destination for Atlantic City’s high rollers.
The luxury casino unveiled its newest amenity geared toward gamblers with deep pockets this week: The Loft.


The private 2,000-square-foot luxury high-limit table games suite is located on the 44th floor of the casino hotel. Talk about high-stakes gambling with a view. The room features floor-to-ceiling views of the Atlantic Ocean.

“Our ability to devote coveted hotel real estate to gaming, raises the bar for high-limit action in Atlantic City,” said Terry Glebocki, CEO of Ocean. “The Loft at Ocean presents a premier casino option for guests seeking an exclusive experience on the East Coast.”

Need to know about The Loft

Entry into The Loft is by invitation only. Guests of The Loft will receive private butler service, personal security detail, and a tailored bar with top-shelf offerings.

The high-limit room has four Blackjack tables, but can be configured for other games such as Roulette or Baccarat.

Ocean said The Loft is designed “with COVID-19 health and safety protocols top-of-mind.” This includes undergoing a deep cleaning after every use, “ensuring players can focus on their game of choice with confidence.”

From The Cove to The Loft

The Loft is the second addition at Ocean in recent months aimed at the upper echelon of casino players.

And the other just opened in December.

The Cove is an all-new $2 million high-limit slot room.

The Cove features:

  • 7,450-square-feet of high-end gaming space
  • Dedicated cocktail service
  • Enhanced beverage selection
  • Private restrooms
  • An exclusive casino cage

Ocean turning the tide in AC

Ocean continues to be one of Atlantic City’s bright spots throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

While all nine of the city’s gambling parlors suffered in 2020 because of COVID-19 and business restrictions, Ocean and Boardwalk-neighbor Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City fared better than their competitors.

Ocean closed out 2020 with the smallest percentage drop (-10.1%) in overall gaming revenue and casino win (-14.9%).

Meanwhile, Hard Rock has reported four straight months (Oct. 2020 – Jan. 2021) of year-over-year increases in monthly land-based revenue.

For February, with gambling floors operating at 35% capacity for the majority of the month, Ocean reported $21.8 million in total gaming revenue. That’s good enough for a 2.4% year-over-year increase. Remember, February 2020 predates the global pandemic shutdown.

Now, with two new high-limit rooms and capacity restrictions increasing to 50% starting on March 19,  Ocean is ready to achieve lofty expectations.
