Well Maryland, you asked for it, you voted for it, now place your bets. The wait is finally over.  While it won’t replace that feeling of driving on the Atlantic City Expressway with your black card in your wallet, booked room at the Water Club, 7:00 dinner reservations at Old Homestead, and 9:00 reservations at the craps tables; the casinos of Maryland are a lot more convenient and the usual empty pocket drive home will be much shorter.

In the November election Question 7  was passed, allowing casinos in Maryland to offer table games. No longer will we have to trek it over state lines for some live action. We all know the feeling.  Hot hand at the craps table, busting black jack dealers, and rolled up aces over kings.  Here’s a quick look at our in state options.

Hollywood Casino in Perryville was the first in Maryland to offer table games. Located off of exit 93 on I95, Hollywood Casino offers Black Jack, Roulette, Craps, 3 and 4 card poker, and a poker room with Texas Hold’em, Omaha, and 7 card stud. With 20 tables total, 12 will be used for table games and 8 for poker. Minimum bets will be decided based on daily demand.

Maryland Live , located at Arundel Mills, is set to debut table games at midnight on April 11. With 122 table games Maryland Live will be the largest casino in the state and offer Black Jack, Roulette, Craps, Baccarat, 3 and 4 Card Poker, Mississippi stud, Texas Hold’em ( the table game), Pia Gow Poker, and Big 6. Poker players will have to continue to play at their local Teddy PGB back room games until the end of summer. A 50 plus table poker room is set to open in a few months. mdli

Caesars  is planning to build a casino in Baltimore City that should be open by the middle of 2014. The two-story Horseshoe casino will be located on Russell Street and offer slots, table games, and poker.

So if you’re looking for some action, remember to always split aces and never splash the pot. Wipe the dust off of your Counting Cards for Dummies, turn off the World Series of poker reruns, and head to your local casino. PIA GOW!
