The state Gaming Enforcement Division gave final approval to Revel's shutdown on Sept. 1 and 2, signing the order on Tuesday night and releasing it on Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014. Showboat and Revel are due to close over Labor Day weekend, with Trump Plaza shutting down on Sept. 16. The shutdowns are part of a rapid unraveling of Atlantic City's gambling market, which began the year with 12 casinos, but will have eight before summer ends. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)
