The state’s largest casino will announce on Wednesday its plan to implement table games following voters’ approval of Question 7 last week.
Maryland Live Casino is expected to remove about 10 percent of its 4,750 slot machines to make room for table games, and Hollywood Casino Perryville asked to remove up to 500 of its machines in August.
Fewer slots and more table games may mean less money for the state than originally projected, according to the state’s top fiscal analyst.
