«In my opinion, atlantic city must try something new and unusual».
Celebrating competitions in atlantic city will attract millions of young fans that can become potential customers of local casinos. Gambling objects of the city want to extract the maximum benefit from this opportunity, since the profit this year was not stable, and the competition in the near future will only increase.
