Study: Prince George's Casino Would Boost Md. Gambling Revenue

An analysis released Tuesday challenged the claim that a National Harbor casino would undermine other Maryland facilities.

Gambling revenues would go up some $246 million statewide if Maryland were to issue a license for a casino in Prince George's County, according to a study released Tuesday.

The analysis, conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Department of Legislative Services, was presented to a group of lawmakers in Annapolis, the Washington Examiner reports.

The study also found that a plan incorporating both table games and a Prince George's casino could bolster profits by 20 percent at Arundel Mills' Maryland Live! casino and as much as 30 percent at a future slots facility in Baltimore.

Some elected officials and competing developers have charged that building a casino at National Harbor would eat into their revenue streams.
