It was late 2012, when the residents of Maryland confirmed their vote to expand table games and that is exactly what they are getting. The Maryland Live! Casino had detailed plans to open up and offer both residents and visitors the chance to visit and play a number of popular games. Situated in Hanover, The Maryland Live! Casino is around an hour’s drive from Washington D.C. and Baltimore.
The Casino recently confirmed that it has plans to open its two story poker playing area, which is spread across 14,800 square-foot towards the end of August, just in time for Labor day.
With this new launch, Maryland Live! Casino will now have one of the largest poker rooms in the Mid-Atlantic. This large space will comfortably hold 52 tables and will host a variety of games, limits as well as high-profile tournaments. With the new space and tables, the casino will now have 174 table games and will be able to service a higher number of players.
In a statement, Robert J. Norton, President and General Manager said
The addition of Poker only enhances the excitement that 24-hour gaming and live table games have created at Maryland Live! Casino. Now we have a complete range of entertainment offerings for our guests that includes incredible dining options from nationally-recognized brands, such as The Cheesecake Factory; Bobby’s Burger Palace, from chef Bobby Flay; Phillips Seafood, and the top Zagat-rated steakhouse, The Prime Rib. Add in a live show at Rams Head Center Stage and you can enjoy a world-class gaming and entertainment experience right here in Maryland.
Most of the Maryland community will be happy with the launch of the new poker room. The most obvious reason is because it gives poker fans more opportunity to play and enjoy themselves. However, the second reason which cannot be ignored, is that the new poker room also needs employees to manage the tables and this means it creates more jobs in Maryland, which is always a good thing.
The Maryland Live! Casino is looking to hire employees and is reportedly going to hire another 250 employees who will fill roles of poker dealers, room personnel and security. Once the hiring of these 250 employees is over, the total workforce in the casino will be close to 2,800. The Casino is looking to hire these employees before the launch of its new poker room.
