More slot casinos in Maryland?
With casinos in Cecil County and on the Eastern Shore up and running, investors are lining up for a chance at potentially lucrative slots licenses in Baltimore and beyond, The Baltimore Sun reports.
At least two groups, one from Canada and another headed by a local attorney, have hired Annapolis lobbyists in preparation for the state reissuing bids for the parlor planned near Baltimore's sports stadiums, a review of state records shows. With an authorized 4,750 slots terminals, the casino would be one of the state's two largest, the paper reports.
Meanwhile, the operators of Laurel Park and two groups that have bid on the bankrupt Rosecroft Raceway in Prince George's County have their own well-established lobbyists in place to try to persuade state lawmakers and Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) to add new gambling sites to the five locations approved for slot machines in 2008.
