Maryland is one step closer to opening its second slots casino as Ocean Downs, located just a few miles from Ocean City, has received final approval for a lottery license.

Ocean Downs casino has been granted the business license from the Maryland State Lottery Commission to operate 700 slot machines at the newly renovated 34,000-square-foot casino here in Worcester County.

Hundreds of people have been hired to work at the $45 million casino, and they are poised to host lottery officials and more than a thousand members of the American Legion, who will test the facility during the scheduled soft opening on Dec. 29.

The official grand opening for the public is slated for Jan. 4, as Ocean Downs will join the Hollywood Casino in Perryville as the only two slots parlors to open since voters legalized slots in 2008.
