The news from Atlantic City just doesn't stop! First Harrahs, then The WaterClub, then The Chelsea and Prasada - and now Pinnacle Entertainment has confirmed they are building a $2 billion hotel and casino resort which will have...wait for it...a beach theme.

If you've ever rolled up into AC and wondered what all those purple and blue billboards saying, "All those other casinos - they are just practice," are for - this is it.

Pinnacle bought the former Sands Casino in 2006 and imploded it last year in Atlantic City's first-ever casino implosion. By now, the hotel was supposed to be well on its way to construction but thanks to the recent credit crisis, who knows what's going on here.

Despite that we don't know what it will look like, or how big it will be, the hotel will be huge. It will also be on the beach, and have heavy competition from the other casinos that are huge, and on the beach. However, the Pinnacle will be brand-new and let's face it, in AC, that is a big deal.

Keep your browser pointed here, as HotelChatter's own Atlantic City Bureau will keep you up-to-date on the Pinnacle in the future.
