The Maryland Video Lottery Facility Location Commission is expected to announce it's decision today. The heavy favorite to win the license is MGM Gaming, which would build a casino at National Harbor.
The other contenders are Penn National Gaming, which would place it's casino at Rosecroft Raceway, and a subsidiary of Greenwood Racing, which is seeking to put a casino in Fort Washington at the intersection of Indian Head Highway and Old Fort Road.
