State Slot Machine Panel Rejects 2 Bids
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s Slot Machine Commission has rejected one of two plans for a casino in Baltimore and one of three proposals for a small slots facility in western Maryland.
The panel on Wednesday rejected a proposal by Baltimore City Casino, LLC, because it did not put up the required $22.5 million license fee needed for 3,750 slot machines.
The decision means the city has one viable proposal before the commission. That has been made by CBAC Gaming LLC, a group associated with Caesars Entertainment Corp., to put 3,750 slot machines at the facility.
The commission also rejected a proposal by Allegany Entertainment Group and Potts Gaming LLC to put 200 slot machines at Rocky Gap State Park. That leaves Landow Partners LLC and Evitts Resort, LLC as two separate viable proposals.
