The Atlantic City Alliance, a group of casino executives and city tourism officials, has been working to broaden the appeal of the New Jersey shore city as a tourist attraction by offering nongaming amenities such as restaurants and clubs. Meanwhile, others are seeing online wagering and sports betting as options to revitalize the city as it continues to recover from Hurricane Sandy. "Sports wagering could be a game-changer for Atlantic City. You look at the population surrounding us in the Northeast, and legal sports wagering could become a huge attraction," said Kevin Ortzman, Caesars Atlantic City's general manager.
