New addition brings exciting gaming with more dining and entertainment options to shoppers
HANOVER, MD (May 16, 2012) – Arundel Mills, the largest outlet, value retail and entertainment destination in Maryland, announced that the opening date for Maryland Live! Casino, the new $500 million gaming and entertainment destination being developed by renown Baltimore-based real estate developers and casino operators, The Cordish Companies, will be June 6, 2012, at 10:00 p.m. (pending approval from the Maryland State Lottery Agency).
“This exciting new development will only strengthen Arundel Mills’ popularity as it continues to welcome millions of shoppers each year,” said Gene Condon, general manager of Arundel Mills. “Maryland Live! Casino will provide the ideal setting for those seeking dynamic gaming entertainment with the convenience of world-class retail, entertainment and dining experiences, all at one location.”
In advance of the opening celebration, Maryland Live! Casino launched the gaming industry’s first play-for-fun online casino, www.myliveonlinecasino.com, a free website that allows gaming enthusiasts to play their favorite slots games, win virtual credits, compete in online tournaments, and sign-up early for the Live! Rewards players card. For the first time ever, this play-for-fun online gaming environment will be branded and integrated with the existing gaming property’s casino management system, providing a world-class gaming experience at home and at the actual casino; thereby, creating opportunities to offer rewards based on the player’s total gaming experience, both live and virtual.
Maryland Live! Casino will open with approximately 3,200 Las Vegas-style slot machines and electronic table games, including Blackjack, Roulette, Mini-Baccarat, and Pai Gow Poker. Slot offerings will include a mix of the latest games and classic favorites, such as Monopoly, Sex and the City, Wizard of Oz, Hot Shots and a full line of Quick Hits and Progressives.
A lineup of nationally-acclaimed restaurant brands, such as Bobby’s Burger Palace, from celebrated chef Bobby Flay, The Cheesecake Factory® and Baltimore-based Phillips® Seafood will join the Live! Market Buffet and Noodles, an Asian wok and noodle bar, to offer a variety of irresistible dining options. And guests can place their bets, while placing their drink orders, at the R Bar, a unique, interactive bar inspired by the game of Roulette, where the bartenders serve double-duty as “dealers” calling the game.
Between July and October, Maryland Live! will also open Rams Head Center Stage, another regional favorite, featuring live entertainment nightly; and The Prime Rib®, the legendary, Zagat-award winning steakhouse, also based in Maryland. The Shop Live! retail store and an additional 1,550 slots and electronic table games will complete the Live! experience.
