MGM Resorts International has won a license for a new casino near the nation's capital in Maryland.
MGM proposed building a $925 million resort near the Potomac River at National Harbor with a 300-suite hotel, casino and seven restaurants. The casino plan includes 3,600 slot machines and 140 table games like blackjack and roulette.
Prince George's Racing Ventures LLC, a subsidiary of Penn National, and Maryland Casino LLC, a subsidiary of Greenwood Racing, also proposed building a casino in Prince George's County, not far from Washington.
Maryland voters approved a casino in the county last year after lawmakers agreed to expand gambling in a special session.
