Ocean Casino Resort

500 Boardwalk, Atlantic City, NJ | 609-783-8000 | Casino Website


Ocean Casino Resort is on the far north end of the Atlantic City Boardwalk. It opened as Revel in April 2012. Revel closed two years later. In 2018, Ocean Resort opened in the same building, which is the newest of all Atlantic City casinos.

There are nearly 1,400 hotel rooms at Ocean Resort in Atlantic City. There are nearly 2,000 slot machines and about 100 table games. 

Ocean Casino Resort

The design of Ocean Resort is unique. Guests that enter from the Boardwalk take a long escalator to the casino floor. Slots are the first gaming guests arriving from that direction will see. Table games are towards the rear of the casino.

There are several pits of table games at Ocean Resort in Atlantic City. The limits were surprisingly low during our visit.

Ocean Casino table games

Eight-deck blackjack was $10. The game hits soft 17, permits double down before and after splitting, late surrender and re-split aces one time. Ocean Resort was the first Atlantic City casino with both re-split aces and surrender at blackjack. At $25, the game stands on all 17’s and uses six decks. For $100, it may be played in the high limit salon. Spanish 21 stands on all 17’s and is dealt for $10 or $15. 

Craps starts at $10. It has 3-4-5 times odds. Double zero roulette was also $10 during our visit. 

Poker table games start at $5. The options are Criss Cross Poker, Four Card Poker, Heads Up Hold’em, High Card Flush, Let it Ride, Mississippi Stud, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em. Baccarat, Face Up Pai Gow Poker and pai gow tiles were $15 during our visit. 

There are two versions of video double zero roulette. Heads up machines start at the nickel denomination and go up to dollar. The multiplayer version starts at $3. 

Ocean Resort video poker

Most video poker at Ocean Resort is in the high limit slots room or in a bank on the Boardwalk side of the casino. There is a large variety. 

Our top pick for video poker at Ocean Resort in Atlantic City is 9/6 Double Double Bonus Poker. We found it on many video poker machines in the casino. We also found 15/9 Deuces Wild for those that prefer wild card games. Other games on these $1, $2 and $5 denomination machines are 8/6 Jacks or Better, 8/6 Bonus Poker Deluxe and 30/8/5 Bonus Poker. The quarter and half-dollar games have lower payouts. 

Most video poker variants offer nickel, dime and quarter denominations. The quarter denomination generally offered a better pay table than nickel and dime. However, we did not find any great pay tables among these machines. The options are Ultimate X, Ultimate X Bonus Streak, 3/5/10 play, Spin Poker, Super Times Pay, Double Super Times Pay, Triple Super Draw, Six Card Poker, Powerhouse Poker, Deal Draw and Dream Card.
