The show is over for the Showboat Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The Mardi Gras-themed casino shut down at 4 p.m. Sunday, after 27 years on the Boardwalk. Owner Caesars Entertainment closed the still-profitable Showboat to reduce the number of casinos in Atlantic City, which has been struggling with plunging revenue and increased competition. Revel will begin a two-day shutdown Monday. Nearly 8,000 casino workers will have lost their jobs.
