Maryland’s fourth casino - the Rocky Gap Casino Resort - hopes to open its doors for gambling this week.

The casino, which held a controlled demonstration on Monday, is awaiting final approval from the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control agency.

The opening could come as soon as Wednesday or Thursday.

Located off Interstate 68 near Cumberland, it will be the state’s smallest casino. Evitts Resort, a subsidiary of Minnesota-based Lakes Entertainment, plans to operate 558 slot machines plus 10 table games at the casino. The table games will include Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Mississippi Stud Poker and Three Card Poker.
