Three groups are vying for the chance to open a casino in Prince George's County. Penn National Gaming and Greenwood Racing both submitted proposals before Friday's deadline with the state.

A subsidiary of MGM Resorts International submitted its own proposal last week for an $800 million casino at National Harbor. Penn National is proposing building a $700 million casino at the company's Rosecroft Raceway in Prince George's County, while Maryland Casino LLC, a subsidiary of Greenwood Racing, is proposing to build its own $800 million casino in Ft. Washington.

Last year Maryland lawmakers and voters approved the creation of one casino location in Prince George's County, bringing the total number of gaming sites to six in the state.
