Baltimore - Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino today signed the operations license allowing Maryland Live! Casino to open to the public. The casino, owned by the Baltimore-based Cordish Co., allows the facility to open its first phase at 10 p.m. Wednesday evening, June 6.
"The Maryland Lottery has reviewed thoroughly the operations of Maryland Live!, the training and quality of its staff, and their adherence to internal controls and policies," Martino said. "We believe that the casino has done an outstanding job preparing itself to open to the public and believe no significant issues remain to be addressed.
"The public can go to Maryland Live! with confidence that the facility is safe and secure and the gaming is being conducted fairly."
Maryland Live! conducted a successful controlled demonstration of the casino on Saturday, June 2. The goal of the demonstration, which was attended by more than 7,500, was to test and assess the facility's more than 3,100 slot machines; food and beverage services; internal controls; employee training; surveillance and security; and technical systems. Maryland Live! will donate its portion of the proceeds from the event to the Anne Arundel Medical Center Foundation, Baltimore Washington Medical Center Foundation, Anne Arundel Community College Foundation and the Baltimore Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
Located at the Arundel Mills Mall in Anne Arundel County, the $500 million Maryland Live! Casino will be one of the largest gaming, retail and entertainment destinations in the country with 4,750 slot machines and electronic table games when fully opened, with a state-of-the-art, live entertainment venue and nationally acclaimed restaurants, such as Bobby's Burger Palace from celebrated chef Bobby Flay, The Cheesecake Factory®, Phillips® Seafood and The Prime Rib®. The casino and its ancillary developments will employ 1,500 upon completion.
This is the third casino to open in Maryland. The other two: Hollywood Casino Perryville, opened in September 2010, and Casino at Ocean Downs, opened in January 2011. To date, the casinos have generated $227.6 million in total gaming revenue with more than $110 million going to Maryland's Education Trust Fund.
The Maryland Lottery will hold a community forum tonight from 7 to 8 p.m. at Dave and Buster's in Arundel Mills Mall. Martino and other Lottery officials will discuss the Lottery's role as regulators of the state's casinos and responsible gambling efforts.
