Each time you visit Best Overall Casino, you will notice a new feature in our Washington DC entertainment calendar. Each month, we celebrate one of the great pioneers of American casino history, Frank Capra. Frank Capra was born in Washington and later became a U.S. Senator and the first Treasury secretary under Presidents Hoover and Coolidge. As a result of his important role as advisor to President Roosevelt on matters of public concern, Frank Capra was made a district judge for D.C. The first casinos he managed were the now-defunct Casinos Steamsmith and the former Bingo Palace.
In keeping with traditional Maryland style casinos, there are three different gaming floors for residents, tourists, and authorized games only. For residents, the main casino is located in the same building as the Bell-in-hand Hotel and the Uptown Casino. Tourists will find the Bell-in-hand and the Uptown Casinos inside the Capital Beltway at the intersections of I Street and New York Avenue. Our Maryland hotels are located in convenient spots near these three amazing casinos.
In addition to the three main casinos, Washington DC also offers four recognized Maryland casinos: the Bell-in-hand Hotel, the Bell-in-hand Casino, the Baltimore Bell, and the Ritz Carlton Hotel and Casino. The Maryland Gaming Commission has approved the opening of seven additional casinos in the state, bringing the total number of permitted gambling establishments in the state to ten. These new casinos include the Baltimore Knickerbocker casino, the Baltimore Marriott Hotel and Casino, the Chesapeake Bay Casino, the Regent Park Casino, the Sterling Silver Casino, and the Washington Park Casino.
This expansion is expected to create more than four hundred thousand jobs in Maryland. More casino employment opportunities will be created in the Maryland localities of Rockville, Waldorf, Howard County, and Anne Arundel County. This new venture will bring the additional employment opportunities in addition to an increased flow of tourists to the state capital. More people from surrounding states will likely come to the District to visit the major sporting events and other entertainment events at Verizon Center, home of the Washington Caps. The added employment opportunities and more tourists mean that Maryland will experience a positive economic boost.
The Maryland Stadium Authority Board approved a plan that will allow professional sports betting in the state capital. The authority board will work with the state’s six counties and three cities – downtown Washington, Baltimore, and Annapolis. It has been reported that the first sportsbook to locate in the new venue will be the New Jersey-based Atlantic City-based team operating under the name of “DC Sports” which is owned by the late Senator Ted Sarandon. This casino will be located in a building that is to be constructed at the site of the future Maryland Stadium.
The General Gaming Commission has also approved a plan that will allow professional sports betting in the state of Maryland. This new regulation has been strongly opposed by several Maryland politicians and residents, who claim it is a violation of the First Amendment. However, the Maryland Stadium Authority Board has made a recommendation to the Maryland General Assembly that would allow the state to tax gambling revenue generated at the new venue. The tax is estimated to generate over three hundred million dollars in the first year alone. This tax will not affect local governments that traditionally rely on revenues generated from tourism and license fees.
The Maryland Governor has also indicated that he expects the new state sites to attract new business to the state from the surrounding area and neighboring states. In addition to the two major Maryland tribes, there are several Native American tribes that have established gambling and sports book facilities within their reservation lands. This indicates that gaming compacts are effective means of promoting tourism and the development of local economies. Maryland is home to one of the five professional football teams in the United States. The other Maryland professional sports team is the Baltimore Orioles, who plays at the famous Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Gambling is legalized in the state and over twenty different tribes have established gambling facilities including the Wicomaw Indians and Pamper Mountain Pines tribes.
