MGM plans to build 800 MUSD casino outside Washington DC, Innovate Gaming | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

MGM Resorts is planning to develop a $800m casino resort at the National Harbor waterfront complex near the nation’s capital. To go ahead, MGM requires that lawmakers allow both slots and tables, plus cut the high gambling tax in the state. The changes are subject to legislation approved by Maryland General Assembly, which would pave the way for a referendum by Maryland voters. The proposed project would create 4,000 permanent jobs and heighten competition in surrounding states Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
