Bids Being Accepted for Prince George’s County Casino

The race to win Prince George’s County casino contest is officially underway.

Maryland’s Video Lottery Facility Location Commission released a 110-page request for proposals (RFP) on Feb. 6 for construction and operation of a high-end Las Vegas-style casino.

Proposals are due to the commission by May 10, with a pre-proposal conference for potential bidders scheduled for Feb. 27.

The RFP was distributed to 200 individuals, organizations and businesses. However, a Maryland Lottery official said that list includes construction companies, lobbyists, anyone who expressed “any sort of interest” in the project.

An official with MGM Resorts International, which last year joined forces with National Harbor developer The Peterson Companies to develop a destination resort casino at National Harbor, said they have been doing their homework for months.
