Was so surprised when the hotel staff said they had a shuttle to the Casino. When we got there we were so surprised it was a full staff casino and how nice it was and its location was inside a shopping center. It had the perfect location and fun to see. Steak house restaurant was excellent just be sure to make reservations.

We were so excited to finally have craps tables only 1/2 hour from our home in MD. They wouldn't tell us minimums over the phone, just said minimums start at $15. Figured if we go early morning weekday, the minimums would be lowest. We prefer $5 or $10 so we can make different bets on same roll, but figured $15 was okay. Unbelievably, only 2 craps tables were even open, and it was $50 minimum, meaning we'd have $300 on the table if we wanted our normal bets on. Sorry, that's no fun for me. And didn't seem fun for those playing,either. They were all very quiet, like every roll was stressful. The casino workers were rude, as well. When we asked if they'd be opening any lower minimum craps tables to see if we should stick around, they told us to go play electronic craps at the bar. No, thanks. We left after 15 minutes or so. Had planned to stay for lunch at Bobby Flay's burger place, maybe grab a bloody mary at the bar, but were so upset with the $50 minimums that we didn't want to contribute one dime to the place. We won't be back, and booked our May casino trip with friends to Dover Downs instead -- $5 minimums 6 a.m. to noon daily, posted right on their website. Maryland Live obviously does not want our business, so we won't give it to them. Their loss, as we visit casinos all over the country, and spend a lot of time at the craps tables.

This casino has COUNTINOUS shuffle which gives even more advantage to casino. Additionally, with COUNTINOUS shuffle you can not have no mid-shoe entry which is another disadvantage for black jack players. Avoid this casino if your game is black jack. Also, this casino is too noisy.

It was small, kinda boring, but had slots and blackjack. It was attached to a huge mall, so lots of opportunities to shop. No entertainment the weekend we were there.

Bernard - Thanks for your review. We are surprised to hear you describe Maryland Live! as small, as we have over 4,000 slot machines and 122 table games to choose from, but we do appreciate your feedback. Also, you may find entertainment every night of the week at Rams Head Center Stage - from karaoke to national touring acts, there is always something to do at Rams Head Center Stage. We hope to see you again soon.

I have been to casinos in probably 10 to 15 states, and this one might be the most disappointing, except for some small dismal ones I have seen in Mississippi. .Although the intentions seems to be good, the employees do not seem to be all that excited. I play craps and I was next to a guy just dropping f-bombs left and right. I am no prude, but at some point, doesn't an employee let him know to chill out a bit. Besides that the minimums were crazy- starting at 25 and going to 100. I guess the lack of competition will inspire that but I can drive 90 minutes to West Virginia or about 90 minutes to Delaware and get a much cheaper deal. I also found it disappointing that I could not bring in a bottle of water- it seems silly to include water in a beverage ban- no reason to get a players card- not much benefit to those either.
