Rocky Gap Casino
The Rocky Gap Casino near Cumberland is demonstrating its poker tables for Maryland gambling regulators.
The flashy jangle of slot machines is a far cry from the stillness of Rocky Gap State Park in western Maryland, but state and local leaders are betting that this week’s planned casino opening will transform a struggling lakeside lodge into the economic engine its planners envisioned 15 years ago.
The Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort is holding an open house where gamblers can sign up for a casino loyalty program.
Maryland regulators say the state’s fourth casino could open as early as May 22 at the Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort near Cumberland.
