New gaming casino opens in Maryland June 6

A new $500 million gaming and entertainment casino located at the Arundel Mills Mall in Hanover, Md. will open June 6 at 10 p.m. EDT.

Located in Anne Arundel County, the first phase of Maryland Live! Casino will open with approximately 3,200 Las Vegas-style slot machines and electronic table games, including Blackjack, Roulette, Mini-Baccarat, and Pai Gow Poker.

In advance of the opening celebration, Maryland Live! Casino has a play-for-fun online casino, Myliveonlinecasino.com, a free website that allows gaming enthusiasts to play their favorite slots games, win virtual credits, compete in online tournaments, and sign-up early for the Live! Rewards players card.

A lineup of nationally-acclaimed restaurant brands, such as Bobby's Burger Palace, from celebrated chef Bobby Flay, The Cheesecake Factory and Baltimore-based Phillips Seafood will join Market Buffet and Noodles, an Asian wok and noodle bar, to offer a variety of irresistible dining options.

Upon completion, the full facility will represent the third largest commercial casino in the United States.

The project broke ground in January 2011. Upon completion, the property will employ approximately 1,500 employees; generate $400 million in tax revenue per year to support local schools, making it the single largest annual and ongoing source of revenue for Maryland's children; and generate $60 million in annual spending on goods and services, all benefiting the local economy.

The casino will be open Sunday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m.; and Friday and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 a.m. Casino guests must be 21 years of age.
