Atlantic City Mega-Site Tips:
Atlantic City convention center is holding a different type of registration program.  They are basically holding a lottery three times a week.  The lottery draws are every week : Tuesdays at 3 p.m., Thursdays at 6 p.m.,  and Saturdays at 9 a.m.
Basically you go to their website just before the time of the lottery and you are placed in a virtual waiting room.  When the hour hits (actually 5 min after the hour) they randomly assign everyone in the virtual waiting room a place in the queue.  About 10 minutes after the hour, they also announce how many openings they have and you can tell right away if you are going to get a place.   To increase your odds, you can log in via multiple devices (pc, phone, tablet, etc), each device gets a place in the lottery.  The available appointments are a few weeks out.
If you get a queue # that is lower than the number of  openings, you just need to stay online and wait for your number to be called and then they allow you to then enter the registration process.  You can also enter an email address and they will send you  an email with a link to be used that day to register.
