    New MD Casinos: Caesars Horseshoe Baltimore and MGM National Harbor

    Caesars Horseshoe Baltimore

    Horseshoe is expected to open in 2014 as an urban two-story casino, and will be the second largest casino in Maryland with a 122,000 sq. ft. gaming floor. The multi-million development will feature VLTs, table games, and a World Series of Poker room. A 20,000 sq. ft. "Baltimore Marketplace" featuring authentic Charm City food outlets, three premier restaurants, and several bars and lounges will round out the food and beverage offerings.

    The $400 million development will be located along Russell Street on Baltimore's south side. As an urban casino, it will be designed to maximize connectivity with existing hospitality operators, neighboring professional sports venues M&T Stadium (NFL-Ravens) and Camden Yards (MLB-Orioles), and the city's famed Inner Harbor.

    MGM National Harbor casino would boast 4,000 slot machines and 250 table games. The complex would also include numerous restaurants, live entertainment venues and a luxury hotel.

    The design of their is inspired by Pierre L'Enfant's original plan for the layout of what came to be Washington, D.C. The entire complex would be perched on top of a 1,600-foot-long pedestal overlooking the water. The entire complex would also be connected by an enormous roof that would connect the hotel to an outdoor terrace

    In the image above, the left is I-495 which leads to the Woodrow Wilson Bridge to Northern Virginia going west (Alexandria). Also on the left (out of frame) going North, there's I-295 going to DC. This casino would be in the perfect convergence spot for the Washington Metro Area. You can bet there will be shuttles from the heart of National Harbor to MGM especially since there's the Gaylord Convention Center there.

    Pretty slick that you can get a fountain view, river view, or both.

    I don't live far from there (about 8 miles)....but far enough that I won't be in the thick of traffic when I leave out my door.

    The 2 other players for the PG County license are

    Greenwood Racing, which is trying to build a Parx Casino in Fort Washington and Penn National Gaming, which owns Rosecroft Raceway.

    Penn National was the one funding the "Vote No On Question 7" ads when this was up for a referendum here. They own Hollywood Casinos in WV and Perryville, MD and would lose a ton if the Baltimore and PG County casinos are built.

    Question 7 also authorized table games which have already been underway at all MD casinos. Maryland Live opened their poker rooms recently.

    Parx would be wayyyy too close to my house and in a location that bottleneck traffic worse than MGM National Harbor.

    Most residents are against that one above all else.

    Rosecroft already has the land and tons of parking because they race horses there.
