Horseshoe Casino Baltimore Moves Toward Opening

25-Table Poker Room Has All Its Tables In As Aug. 26 Opening Nears


Everything appears to be on schedule for the Horseshoe Casino Baltimore to open on the night of Aug. 26. It will be the fifth casino in the state of Maryland.

“It’s exciting. It’s exciting for our team, but this construction team has put in a lot of time and effort as well, and for them to see there’s light at the end of the tunnel, it is exciting,” the casino’s general manager, Chad Barnhill, told WBAL News.

Construction on the casino actually moved ahead of schedule.

Thanks to 122,000 square feet of gaming floor space, the casino will have 100 table games, 2,500 slots and a 25-table poker room, in addition to the Las Vegas-style amenities.

The price tag was $440 million for the casino-hotel.

Here’s a look at the World Series of Poker-branded poker room, in which the last table was recently put in, according to the poker room’s manager, Anthony Chester.
