Maryland Live! at Arundel Mills Mall will now be open 24 hours a day.

Maryland's largest casino unlocked its doors for the last time Thursday morning.

Maryland residents voted for expanded gambling and that's what they're getting, with more table games and expanded casino operating hours. Maryland Live! at Arundel Mills Mall will now be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Until now, Maryland casinos were open from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday-Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Next month, construction teams at Maryland Live! will add more than 150 table games to the casino floor, including blackjack and roulette.
