The Maryland Slots Commission met Wednesday to scrutinize bid proposals made by three entities. The commission rejected the bid by Allegany Entertainment Group and Potts Gaming LLC to install 200 slot machines at Rocky Gap, due to the lack of completion of required paper work according Allegany County Commissioner Bill Valentine. This decision leaves Landow Partners LLC and Evitts Resort, LLC as two separate viable proposals.
The commission also rejected the proposal of Baltimore City Casino, LLC, because it did not put up the required $22.5 million license fee needed for 3,750 slot machines. The decision means that the city of Baltimore has one viable proposal before the commission. That has been made by CBAC Gaming LLC, a group associated with Caesars Entertainment Corp., to put 3,750 slot machines at the facility.
