State signs operations license for fourth casino

Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency Director Stephen Martino today signed the operations license allowing Rocky Gap Casino Resort to open in Western Maryland. The casino, owned by Evitts Resort, LLC, offers 558 slot machines and 10 table games.

As required by law, Rocky Gap Casino Resort conducted a controlled demonstration on Monday, May 20. The demonstration, which was open to the public, tested and assessed the facility’s slot machines and table games, internal controls, employee training, surveillance and security, and technical systems. The casino’s share of proceeds from the demonstration will go to a local charity, Volunteer Team Inc., Friends of Rocky Gap State Park.

“After a thorough review of the casino, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency is satisfied that the Rocky Gap facility is properly prepared to open to the public,” said Martino.

Located off exit 50 on Interstate 68 in Flintstone, the resort offers slot machines, table games, indoor and outdoor recreational activities, overnight accommodations and food and beverage services. The resort is the third Maryland casino to offer table games and currently employs 500 staff members. Maryland Live Casino began offering table games last month. Hollywood Casino Perryville began offering the games in March.
