Maryland’s biggest casino officially debuted a $48 million second-level casino space on Monday, which, according to casino officials, has been driven by higher-than-anticipated demand since its December 2016 opening.

GM National Harbor's expansion, which comes less than two years after opening its doors in December 2016, includes a new, second-floor poker room, off-track horse betting offered in partnership with the Maryland Jockey Club, 285 slot machines and a new terrace overlooking the Potomac River.

"It’s a great result when positive customer demand drives a business to expand its offerings," said Melonie Johnson, President and Chief Operating Officer of MGM National Harbor. "This year, we have set new casino revenue marks. Expanding our gaming offerings will help us meet the desire of our customers for more luxury gaming entertainment space while welcoming new players to the resort as well. Most importantly, we are providing 250 additional jobs and additional tax revenues to Prince George’s County and the State of Maryland."

The newly completed space includes the following elements:

  • Poker Room – The MGM National Harbor Poker Room has been relocated to the second level, increasing it by seven tables to a total of 46, with seating for 460 players. The space also features a two-table high-limit poker room.
  • The Race Book – The second level now offers a 24-screen off-track betting lounge created in partnership with The Maryland Jockey Club, founded in Annapolis in 1743.
  • Snacks – This fast-casual dining venue, serve a menu of resort favorites from Asian-inspired bowls to pizza, wings and more.
  • Terrace – From the 700-square-foot overlook, visitors can enjoy beautiful views of National Harbor, the Maryland countryside and Virginia shores. By night, it is a prime spot to watch the sunset over the Potomac River and also serves as a public smoking area.

The expansion comes as MGM’s biggest competitor, the Live Hotel and Casino in Anne Arundel County, recently added a 310-room hotel that now stands as the county’s tallest building.

State regulators report that June revenue at the MGM casino totaled $59 million, compared to $48 million at Live casino.
