HANOVER, Md. - The Maryland Live! Casino parking lot may never be empty again.
You may never see the lot empty again because the casino will now be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It opened at 8 a.m. Thursday.
The casino has 4,700 slot machines, and will add 150 tablet games in the spring.
Maryland Live! Casino is now the only casino open 24 hours a day. It's a move that those representing Maryland Live! Casino hope will translate into a bigger impact for what is the third largest commercial casino in the country.
"From our employees to our customers, everyone at Maryland Live! is very excited that 24-hour gaming in Maryland is about to become a reality," said Robert J. Norton, president and general manager. "We're also hard at work making preparations for the arrival of approximately 150 live table games and hiring more than 1,200 new employees, including 800 dealers."
On January 7, Maryland Live! Casino, in association with Anne Arundel Community College, will launch a free dealer school specifically designed to educate and train future dealers.
Applications are being accepted online through the end of the year at www.marylandlivecasino.com .
