Warning signs for Maryland's slots program
If Maryland legislators are looking for a sign to tell them whether to support Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan to expand the state's gambling program to include a sixth casino, they got it this week when Penn National Gaming asked if it could give back a third of the slot machines at its Hollywood Casino in Perryville. That facility had been reeling since a new competitor,the Cordish Cos. Maryland Live, opened in June, and Penn National officials said having fewer machines would save them money and make the casino look a little less depressingly empty for those who still gamble there.
