The highly-anticipated Ocean Resort Casino opened its doors along the Atlantic City Boardwalk Thursday afternoon, becoming one of two new luxury resorts promising to pump life back into the struggling city.

Ocean Resort's new owners, who set to work on transforming the shuttered $2.6 billion Revel in January, celebrated the transformation of Atlantic City's tallest building and looked forward to a revitalization of the city's boardwalk.

"Atlantic city is truly back in the game," said Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam, speaking at the second of two casino grand openings Thursday. "This is truly a collaboration of folks, realizing that (this) is an important part of not only Atlantic City history, but world history."

A soft opening took place Wednesday night, but the official festivities kicked off Thursday afternoon sprawling complex.

Ocean Resort Casino owner Bruce Deifik said his team is prepared to start anew and overcome the customer-unfriendly criticism that plauged the former Revel, which actually had a now-removed wall between the resort and the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk.

"Everybody, all 3,280 full-time team members, we're all ambassadors." Deifik said. "On the Boardwalk, were going to be doing the same thing."
