That one's supposed to be "upscale" and "luxury," like all those ads for resorts in Vegas and Atlantic City.
Now Penn National Gaming wants in on the Maryland action. It is proposing a $700 million Hollywood Casino Resort at Rosecroft Raceway.
Meanwhile, the owner of a Pennsylvania casino wants to build an $800 million Parx Casino Hotel & Spa nearby in Fort Washington.
So who will win?
As Atlantic City demonstrates so vividly, it won't be the residents of Prince George's County. It will be the casinos themselves, which are raking in record revenues in Maryland.
The promise that gambling will help Maryland schools has turned out to be illusory.
Since the state's voters approved slot machines in 2008 and an Educational Trust Fund was set up to snag all that coinage, little has improved for schools.
"What about the money from the slot machines? It did go to public schools, as advertised," wrote the Maryland Budget and Tax Policy Institute in an analysis on the gambling debate last year.
"But an equivalent amount of tax money went away to help balance the state budget. The Education Trust Fund turns out to be a shell game."
When the 2008 referendum was passed, it projected that Maryland schools would get $660 million this fiscal year.
Guess what? Now the best estimates say only $260 million will go into that fund, according to the institute. A mere $400 million miscalculation.
Uh-huh. Talk about a bait and switch.
I was glad to leave Atlantic City in the rearview mirror Sunday afternoon after redeeming the experience with a few seashells and some sandy toes on the beach.
But it made me even more depressed about the empty promises in store for Maryland.
