And it will continue to decline with the addition of other casinos opening in Maryland. There goes the beneficial revenue for allowing gambling in Maryland…….
Keep building those big gambling parlors. They look tasteful, help build communities by adding useful ideas and demonstrate how to live by wholesome values. They’re just great.

I wouldn’t spend a nickle in one of these casinos. It is amazing, the people in work I hear complaining about money problems, are the same ones buying lottery tickets, dropping $ into the sports big game pools, and going to Atlantic City for the weekend. No wonder they’re broke!

The reason that Hollywood is down because the machines don’t hit EVER. I have been to Hollywood Casion at least 15 times in the last 4 months and have always LOST. Hollywood Casino has set those machines tighter than a frog’s a$$. The other problem is they (Hollywood) do not give you enough comps to make it worth a trip up there. Who cares about $10 in slot play when you have already dropped $1,000 up there – you must be kidding me. At MD Live, they had a promo a few weeks ago that if you went there 3 Saturdays in a row, you received $30 on the first Saturday, $60 on the 2nd Saturday and $90 on the 3rd Saturday. Those are the kinds of comps that get people playing and returning. At least a MD Live you can break even or win a few dollars on occasion. At Hollywood, you might as well toss your money out the window when you cross the bridge at 95. On that topic, how about the now $6 toll to cross I95 to get there – O’Malley, you can kiss my a$$ on that one. I live in Bel Air and you think I am going to give the Peoples Republic of Maryland $6 to go 20 minutes up the road to gamble…….. not so says I.
I will goto Delaware park via Rt 1 north and keep my $6 in tolls and I won’t put another doller in the pirate leprechaun O’Malley’s hands.
