Atlantic City's Showboat Casino to Close in August
The Showboat Casino Hotel, left, and Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, center, shown here on March 7, 2012, are among the nine casinos lining the shoreline in Atlantic City, N.J.
The parent company of Atlantic City's Showboat Casino Hotel says the casino will shut down on Aug. 31.
Caesars Entertainment told The Associated Press Friday morning the company will shutter the poorest-performing of its four Atlantic City casinos.
It will be the second casino to close this year in the nation's third-largest gambling market.
The Atlantic Club closed in January. Revel Casino Hotel has warned it might shut down if a buyer can't be found in bankruptcy court.
