Maryland Gaming Chief Talks Land Based Gambling
With Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware legalizing the online gambling industry earlier this year, Maryland is trying to leap ahead of its competitors by pursuing various gaming initiatives. One of the most important moves made by Maryland regulators was the introduction of live dealer table games inside land based gambling establishments. Stephen Martino, Director of the State Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, has declared that this move will help the Maryland gambling industry develop even more than it did until now, new game tables keeping casino operators busy.
Martino explained that by introducing table games to Maryland casinos, the state succeeded in reducing the unemployment rate by hiring people to work inside gambling establishments, especially live dealers who currently operate game tables. On the other hand, by adding these games to three of the four Maryland casinos, gambling establishments in the state are finally attracting consumers which used to drive to neighboring states, like Pennsylvania, Virginia or Delaware just to be able to play these casino games which weren’t available in Maryland brick-and-mortar casinos. Martino also explained that government coffers also benefit from the introduction of dealer-operated game tables, considering that they generate significant revenue which is partially directed to the state of Maryland.
