US’ third largest casino to open in June | News | Casino | InterGame
Maryland Live!, a new $500m gaming and entertainment destination being developed by the Cordish Companies in the US, is to open on June 6.
The casino is located at the Arundel Mills Mall in Hanover, Maryland, and will open with approximately 3,200 slots and electronic table games. These will include blackjack, roulette, baccarat and poker, as well as the latest slot games from major manufacturers such as IGT, Bally Technologies and WMS.
Between July and October, a further 1,500 slots and gaming machines will be introduced.
“Maryland Live! Casino is a world-class facility that will bring a new level of entertainment to the gaming industry,” said Joe Weinberg, managing partner of the Cordish Companies. “In the first phase alone, Maryland Live! will be more than twice as large as any existing property in Maryland and one of the largest casinos in the country. Upon completion, the full facility will represent the third largest commercial casino in the United States.”
In advance of the launch, the casino is launching a play-for-fun online casino – Myliveonlinecasino.com – designed to allow people to play their favourite slot games and win virtual credits.
“We’re proud to be a pioneer in the evolution of play-for-fun online gaming,” said Weinberg. “Myliveonlinecasino.com will generate a lot of excitement in advance of our opening.”
