Panel of senators supports gambling expansion in Maryland

March 26, 2012 9:50 AM by Staff & Wire Reports

A panel of state Senators is supporting legislation to expand gambling in Maryland.

The Budget and Taxation Committee voted 10-2 Friday afternoon to move the bill to the full Senate.

The proposal would create a sixth Maryland license for a slot machine parlor to be built in Prince George’s County and legalize table games at that location and the state’s five other slots sites.

It would also increase the share of revenue casino operators keep and relieve the state of an obligation to buy slot machines, which has proved to be an ineffective expense.

If the legislature passes the bill it will have to be ratified by a majority of Maryland voters.

Cosmopolitan could be shifting its marketing efforts

Usually when a high profile Las Vegas Strip property sends slot free-play solicitations to locals it is a sign their slot business is running a bit soft. After all, the hold percentages on the Strip are much higher than local casinos and about the only time locals play slots on the Strip is when they are at the property for other reasons, dinner, show or entertaining friends.
