Caesars says it’s true to Baltimore

Casino company denies it’s attracted to Prince George’s site

Executives of Caesars Entertainment, the leading bidder for a slots parlor in Baltimore, gave lawmakers explicit assurances Friday that their company will not abandon the city for Prince George’s County if the General Assembly approves a casino there.

But a rival casino company described the Caesars position as “nonsensical.”

The exchange came after Baltimore lawmakers fired questions at Caesars executives during a city delegation meeting in Annapolis, with some expressing doubt about the company’s motives for supporting an expansion of gambling in Maryland.
