2014 was a difficult year for the Atlantic City casino industry.
Four of the city's 12 casinos shut down this year, laying off around 8,000 workers.
In total, the city's assessed property value was almost cut in half over the past few years, dropping from $20.5 billion in 2010 to $11.3 billion in 2014.
