A $2.4 billion casino in Atlantic City that has been closed since the fall of 2014 is going to re-open in June, its owner said this week.

He said that dining and hotel rooms will be available, adding that he plans to have a gaming floor, though his license from the state Division of Gaming Enforcement is still pending.
