ANNAPOLIS — A Maryland lottery official said Monday he believes the state is “well on track” to receive proposals to build a casino in Baltimore by a July 28 deadline.
Robert Howells, procurement director for the Maryland State Lottery Agency, told the state’s slot machine commission that there was a very good turnout for a pre-proposal conference in Baltimore last month. Howells said there were about 50 people in attendance, representing about 35 to 40 different companies and entities.
The commission rejected an earlier proposal to build a casino by a developer. This time, however, Howells said he’s optimistic the state will receive “some good responses.”
The Baltimore casino would be Maryland’s second largest slot machine facility, with up to 3,750 machines.
