ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

Revel is the second of three Atlantic City casinos closing over the next two weeks, leaving thousands of people jobless.

The Showboat shut its doors on Sunday. Trump Plaza will do so Sept. 16.

Meanwhile, what's next for Revel is anyone's guess. The casino has been unable to find anyone willing to buy the property and keep it open.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley is live in Atlantic City all morning long reporting on the casino's last call, how it crumbled to financial defeat and what might come next. He's also getting reaction from employees affected by the closure.
