Looking Back at Ocean Casino Resort's 2022

Published: December 2022

In 2022, visitors came to Ocean Casino Resort from near and far to stay in our luxurious rooms, try their luck in our thrilling casino, indulge their appetites in our restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, and be captivated by our sensational views of Atlantic City’s historic skyline and the regal expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.

But no matter why they came, they all stayed for the same reason: The convenience of having the most electrifying experiences in Atlantic City within steps of their hotel room. And we’re happy to say, we didn’t disappoint. 

As the year draws to a close, we’re looking back on everything that made 2022 such an unforgettable year for Ocean Casino Resort. From securing top awards to improving our hotel, here’s what we’re most proud of. 

Awards & Recognitions

In 2022, we worked hard to prove our status as the best resorts casino hotel Atlantic City NJ has to offer. We focused on booking the most in-demand entertainers, serving the tastiest craft cocktails, curating the trendiest atmospheres, and bringing the hottest Atlantic City experiences right to the hotel, all in an effort to exceed our guests’ expectations at every turn. 

But in the process, we managed to win a spate of prestigious awards that speak to the excellence of every inch of our hotel. From our incredible rooms to the casino floor, plus all the restaurants, stages, and luxury amenities in between, we collected accolades from guests and critics alike that affirm our commitment to creating the best Atlantic City vacation you can book.

Here are some of the biggest prizes we took home this year. 

Strictly Slots Players Choice Awards 

The gaming industry is the beating heart of Atlantic City and Ocean Casino Resort. And in 2022, we went the extra mile to ensure that every guest at Ocean Casino Resort had access to the best casino experience in town. And it worked. 

We hit the jackpot in Strictly Slots magazine’s annual Player’s Choice Awards, taking home 19 awards, including first-place wins for:


  • Best Variety of Slots
  • Best Video Slots
  • Best Progressive Slots
  • Best 50-cent Slots
  • Best $5+ Slots
  • Best High-end Slot Area
  • Best Slot Club
  • Best Players’ Club Lounge
  • Best VIP Service

Strictly Slots’ readers also recognized our achievements in areas like customer service, quarter slots, and overall casino. They also named us one of the top Atlantic City casinos “where you feel luckiest.” And it tracks: in 2022, we paid out over $156 million in jackpots. 

Just another reason to try your luck at Ocean Casino Resort.

USA Today Readers’ Choice Awards 

USA Today reaches over 600,000 readers each week, and they all agree that in 2022, Ocean Casino Resort AC raised the bar when it comes to gaming, dining, Atlantic City events, and more. 

Across the country, readers cast their votes for the USA Today Readers’ Choice Awards, and we’re thrilled to announce that they named Ocean Casino Resort the Best Casino Hotel in the United States, the Best Casino Outside of Las Vegas, and Best Players Club. 

But it isn’t just our glamorous gaming tables, slot machines, and luxurious accommodations that wowed USA Today voters this year. Readers were also in love with our world-class restaurants, high-end amenities, and live entertainment. To prove it, they awarded Ocean Casino Resort with the following recognitions:


  • Best Hotel Spa 
  • Best Casino Restaurant 
  • Best Casino Show in the U.S. 

Casino Player Magazine Best of Dining & Nightlife Awards

We take gaming very seriously at Ocean Casino Resort AC, but we don’t stop there when it comes to providing the hottest Atlantic City experience. 

We work hard to make sure our restaurants, bars, and nightclubs are just as exciting as the casino, offering the best way for our guests to let loose in Atlantic City. So we’re understandably over the moon for the recognitions we received from Casino Player magazine’s Best of Dining & Nightlife awards. 

From breakfast to dinner and cuisine to cocktails, Casino Player lavished the praise on the bars and restaurants at Ocean Casino Resort this year. They even went so far as to honor the spectacular sightlines from Dolce Mare, our casino-adjacent Italian restaurant, which snagged the distinction of Best Views for its awe-inspiring ocean vistas. 

But that’s not all. Casino Player recognized many of our restaurants and bars, including: 


  • American Cut – 2022 marks the second consecutive year that our on-site steakhouse, American Cut, took home the award for Best Steakhouse. Featuring delicious steaks, succulent seafood, a lively atmosphere, and hot happy hour specials, Casino Player agrees that American Cut is a cut above the rest. 


  • Distrito – Chef Juan Garces’s Distrito is our on-site, authentic Mexican food truck where you can score delicious breakfast burritos and the best tacos in town. Now, it’s Casino Player’s choice for Best Mexican Cuisine.


  • Harper’s – Nothing completes an Atlantic City morning like a scrumptious breakfast just steps from your hotel room. Harper’s is 2022’s Best Breakfast winner, making it the best way to fuel up for a day of Atlantic City fun. 

And when it comes to nightlife, we’re proud to say that Casino Player considers our very own Nola’s Bar & Lounge to be the Best Lounge around, and Villain & Saint is where you’ll find Atlantic City’s Best Bartenders. 

Building a Better Ocean Casino Resort 

At Ocean Casino Resort we’re very proud of the many awards and recognitions we received in 2022. They stand as a testament to the work we’re doing to make sure ours is the best oceanfront resort in Atlantic City. 

But those awards only tell half the story.

In 2022, we continued going above and beyond to make our resort the best it can be. We poured over $85 million into improving our property, ensuring that our guests wake up in first-rate rooms, win big in the best casinos, and dine, drink, and party in the hottest restaurants and bars in Atlantic City.   

Ocean Casino Resort—Come For the Win

Staying at Ocean Casino Resort is the safest bet you can place in Atlantic City. We offer the best rooms, restaurants, and of course, the best casino in town—and we have the awards to prove it.
