So I’ve got a few days off, and a complimentary room at MGM National Harbor so how about a trip report? MGM NH sits adjacent to the National Harbor planned development (which is relatively new) at the confluence on Maryland, DC, and Virginia on the Potomac River in Prince George’s County, MD. I grew up about 15 minutes from here and currently live about 20 minutes the other direction. While definitely appointing itself as a luxury property with decidedly “not the best” odds for gamers I’m proud of the investment made in PG County. The National Harbor development along with MGM has made it a world-class place to visit, and brought tons and tons of jobs. Plus, there’s no shortage of money in DC and the surround suburbs. Enough backstory. The real purpose of this visit is an audition of sorts for casino spending dollar. I am not a rich lobbyist so I don’t necessarily like throwing money down the toilet but I do like to gamble. I am taking what should be sufficient bankroll to put $10,000 coin-in on slots for 3 days. If I can’t at least take an 80-85 percent win from that coin-in I’ll stop playing here for the foreseeable future. I’m not opposed to table games but I prefer lower minimums and a more relaxed pace. If they fail the test I’ll have no problem limiting my casino spend to places I have to travel for. #WishMeLuck and I’ll update as much as possible!
