The casino was empty during a press preview in May. Expect heavy crowds instead the opening week.
Maryland's largest casino will officially open tonight in Anne Arundel County. Maryland Live! is located next to the Arundel Mills Mall in Hanover. If you're thinking of seeing if you can make luck your lady tonight, you are not alone.
The State Highway Administration is advising drivers to expect a high volume of traffic along Maryland Route 100 and Route 295 through this weekend because of the opening.
The casino will have about 3,200 slot machines on opening night, as well as five restaurants. Another 1,550 slot machines are set to be added in a second phase between July and October.
The casino is expected to employ 1,500 people and generate as much as $400 million in additional tax revenue for the state.
