After Maryland Live! Casino just opened a casino near Baltimore/Washington International airport, MGM Resorts International said it wants to catch up with a hotel-casino complex at National Harbor on the Potomac near Washington D.C.
"We believe this ideal location will not only attract residents from Virginia and D.C., but will also serve as a new amenity for the more than 40 million domestic and international visitors who travel to the Nation´s Capital each year," MGM says.
The proposed casino and resort would include 4,000 slot machines and 250 tables with dealers. However, MGM said it could only be built if Maryland lowers the tax rate on gambling revenue and allows table games.
