By Greg Peppers

The first slot machines could be coming to Maryland before the end of the month.

Officials says Maryland's first slots casino is on track to open by September 30th in Cecil County. A spokesman for Penn National Gaming says the company is working to open 15-hundred slots at Hollywood Casino in Perryville.

The gaming company had said that it might push back the opening as state regulators examine whether it inappropriately interfered with another company's efforts to build a casino in Anne Arundel County.

But, slots commission Chairman Donald Fry says the Cecil casino is on track to open next week. He also says plans are set for a coin test and a trial casino night for charity is scheduled for this weekend.
