PRESS RELEASE

December 09, 2010

As of January 4, 2011, the games are on at The Casino at Ocean Downs! That Tuesday, Governor Martin O'Malley and several state and local dignitaries will participate in a "ribbon-cutting ceremony" to help inaugurate the $45 million gaming facility in the heart of Maryland's beach resort community.

"We were impressed with the plans for the site and are confident that this world-class entertainment facility will be a tremendous asset to the Eastern Shore and the entire state of Maryland."
The casino features more than 700 video lottery terminals (slot machines), nearly 34,000 square feet of gaming space and new food and beverage offerings.

"The Location Commission is thrilled with the announced opening of the slots facility at Ocean Downs," said Donald C. Fry, chairman of the Maryland Video Lottery Facility Location Commission. "We were impressed with the plans for the site and are confident that this world-class entertainment facility will be a tremendous asset to the Eastern Shore and the entire state of Maryland."

Providing an exceptional customer experience will be a top priority for the Casino at Ocean Downs. More than 200 new employees, most who live in the areas around the Casino at Ocean Downs, have been hired and trained in anticipation of the opening day.

"Our team is energized and ready to provide our guests with a fun and memorable gaming experience," said Joe Cavilla, general manager of the Casino at Ocean Downs.

The casino's Maryland Lottery Controlled Demonstration will be held on December 29. Nearly 1,000 American Legion members have been invited to the private event to test the slots and try out the customer service skills of the casino staff.

"The January 4 opening is a testament to the dedication of our construction team and staff working to bring this gaming experience to the people of Maryland," Cavilla said. "We ran into some challenging construction delays—some bad weather, for example—that threatened to push back our opening. Thanks to the nearly non-stop work of our staff, we are able to open very close to our target date, and— most import—we have not compromised on quality to do so. Our guests will see that from the moment they hit the casino floor."
