One More Poker Room Added in Maryland

The state of Maryland has steadily moved along in the area of gambling after live dealer games were authorized last year. Players have had the opportunity to enjoy a variety of table games thanks to the amendment last year and now another new poker room is in the mix. The Rocky Gap Casino Resort has opened a new poker room that is now open for business.

Many other casinos in the state have opened poker rooms and have been busy launching table gaming options. The Rocky Gap poke room has three poker tables and has no limit hold’em and limit hold’em. This may not seem like a lot compared to New Jersey or Nevada, but the state of Maryland has went from zero table games to many options over a few months’ time frame. Residents are definitely happy to have the options and visitors now have added destinations to add to their list.

The Rocky Gap gaming facility also has over 550 slot machines and ten table games. The casino was just recently allowed to add a poker room after Stephen Martino, the Lottery and Gaming Control Agency Director signed for the operation license. The casino just opened in May of this year and already has a nice selection of gaming options to choose from.

A fifth casino is also in the works currently in the state of Maryland so eventually there will be even more gaming options. The new casino will be owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp and will be home to a WSOP branded poker room, most likely, but not yet confirmed. As of right now, the largest poker room in the state is at Maryland Live! But the new casino is sure to give them a run for their money!
