POLL: How Often Have You Visited Maryland Live!?

The casino at Arundel Mills has been open for about two months. Are you a repeat visitor?

The Maryland Live! casino at Arundel Mills has been open for a little more than two months.

The facility has pulled in $63 million during that time, making it easily the highest revenue-generating casino in the state. It's also the largest, after the operators added more than 500 slot machines in addition to the 3,000 already installed.

Lawmakers are in Prince George's County.

There was a lot of excitement when Maryland Live! opened on June 6. But have you been back since it opened?

We want to know how often area residents have visited the new casino.

Vote in the poll and feel free to leave a comment below.

I haven’t been to Maryland Live, don’t expect to go there, and in addition, I’m going to try to convince others not to go there. In addition to all the promises (that he didn’t keep) and actions Cordish did to get his casino built at Arundel Mills Mall, he has now submitted a bill which will enable him to operate his casino 24 hours/day. That means he has no interest in anyone who lives in the vicinity of Arundel Mills Mall.

I've been once, because I had to pee. It would have been faster to go into the mall, oddly enough, but I was also curious about the place. Haters are gonna hate, but that place was PACKED! Either people are driving in from all over to play slots, or people who comment here are in the minority (or both). This isn't me defending the casino, because I'm neutral on the whole thing for the most part. I'd say the only problem I have is that if you're building a casino, just go all out already and throw in real card tables with real people dealing, free booze at the tables, and a venue or two for shows. I'm disappointed because it's not the full deal, and I have little interest in this since it's basically Dave and Busters with a chance that I might win some money. Also, better food. Of course, not only do I believe in casinos being, well, casinos, I also believe in little things like grocery stores selling booze. Clearly, I'm a deviant by Mid-Atlantic standards.

Can you elaborate on promises not kept? Thanks!

Hey Elizabeth!! I would be glad to do so. 1) Cordish mentioned at the beginning there would be no slots parlor at Arundel MIlls Mall (I read that in the Baltimore Sun back in 2008 before his announced his proposed slots parlor after the 2008 referendum was passed). I don’t like that he did that but a lot of developers do that. 2) He mentioned to us (with authority at a meeting before the recent slots referendum was passed) that there would not be one car that would drive on Arundel Mils Blvd to his slots parlor. What did he do? Fund the majority of the re-design of the interchange at Arundel Mills Blvd. and the B/W Parkway. This is important because it is harder for us to get out of our neighborhoods to merge onto Arundel Mills Blvd. due to the increase of traffic. 3) He mentioned and agreed with us after the recent slots referendum was to not have his slots parlor operate 24 hours/day. What did he do? Create a bill based on the negative effects of the proposed National Harbor Casino on his casino to have casinos operate 24 hours/day. This was important since his casino is in the middle of a residential neighborhood. The above are ones off the top of my head. There are others which enabled him to get his slots parlor approved By AA County Voters. by the way, I voted to not have slots in Maryland back in 2008 and I voted agsinst have a slots parlor at Arundel Mills mall.
