More Slot Machines Coming to Maryland?
It would seem that Maryland has answered a question that has held my suspicion for a while. Maryland is not a very large states but even for its size I thought having only five venues in the entire state that offer slot machines might be a little small. I have wondered if the state planned on expanding their gambling program and not just by approving table games. It was the way in which Penn National Gaming so aggressively started working to establish another venue to convince the state to let them operate more slot machines there. This never made any sense to me because to the best of my knowledge the state had already set a legal limit on slot machines in the state and created a law from operators being able to own more than one casino.
The fact that the Maryland legislature is no throwing in the deal the this new operator is allowed to operate more than one casino in the state leads me to believe that Maryland is planning on creating more casinos in the future. Rocky Gap is the last venue that needs an operator, so in theory there are no more casinos left to own. There certainly has not been any details on how soon and how many new slot machines will be legalized by the state. I am happy however that Maryland is finally in a place where they can officially start planning for the future. Hopefully, despite all the misfires, Maryland will eventually establish a successful gambling industry.
