New York, NY – The Red Dog Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey has announced that it has shut down after being the target of multiple threats and attacks in recent months.

“Our primary focus has been on protecting our guests and employees from further harm.
We are working to ensure the safety of our guests, employees and guests.
As we continue to make necessary adjustments, we will provide more information as we become aware of new developments.”
The casino was located at 7th Street and Madison Avenue in Atlantic Beach, New York.

“The Red Dogs, like any casino, has had a very hard time, over the past two weeks, as threats and threats of violence have been directed towards us and our staff,” the site states.
The announcement comes as a major setback to the gaming industry in New York as a flood of new casinos and resorts are opening up every week.
