Revel Reveals Smoke-Free Casino Opening NBC Philadelphia/Ted Greenberg

Atlantic City's newest casino will give guests a taste of things to come before it opens at the start of the Memorial Day weekend.

Revel says it will begin welcoming guests on April 2 for an eight-week preview during which gaming opportunities, restaurants, entertainment venues and other amenities will open on a progressive schedule.

Revel says the $2.4 billion, 100-percent smoke-free resort will officially become Atlantic City's 12th casino on May 25.

The hotel will begin accepting reservations for the preview on March 2.

Revel will have 1,900 hotel rooms and employ about 5,500 people. It will become the first casino to open in Atlantic City since the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in 2003.
