Lawmakers Continue Prince George's County Slots Discussion

Maryland lawmakers are holding a hearing in Annapolis on several bills regarding the expansion of gambling in the state. One of the bills being discussed today would add a sixth slots casino license for a facility to be built in Prince George's County.

A spokesman for the sole applicant hoping to put a slots parlor in downtown Baltimore says they'll support the bill even though they don't like the idea of a sixth casino.

Caesars Entertainment believes a Prince George's County casino would draw from their potential customer base, but they feel other elements of the bill would create a more stable marketplace for gaming, including the addition of table games like Blackjack and Roulette at Maryland casinos.
