Not too many people have been collecting $200 in Atlantic City these days, and the trend appears to be continuing.
The classic board game Monopoly turns 80 years old this year, but people are forgetting where it all started.
NJ.com reports that game owner Hasbro is releasing a new version of Monopoly in the fall, with 20 cities to be included as property spaces to be determined by a public vote.
Sixty cities are included in the voting. Atlantic City ranks 51st.
Atlantic City is included in the district represented by U.S. Rep Frank LoBiondo. Lobiondo posted on Twitter, according to NJ.com, “Identity of Monopoly game is #AtlanticCity. Countless fans recognize famous streets as tourists visiting celebrate world-renowned boardwalk.”
Ventnor Avenue and Park Place are included in Monopoly, and the city with the most votes gets the “Boardwalk” space, according to The Press of Atlantic City. Voting ends on March 4, and you can vote here.
