I can only speak to Blackjack...but I'd say the minimums at MD Live will be $50 mostly and no lower than $25 for the first couple of weeks. Even $100 is not out of the question opening night. They had people lined up around the building when they opened last year. I think the table games roll out will be the same.

As for the smaller casino in Perryville...they may have to go lower I'd say $25 min on weekends and $10-15 during the week. Del. Park is serious competition and demographically they have a hard time competing with the bigger money in Balt. and DC that MD Live attracts.

Should be interesting. There is another casino near Ocean City MD that I've never been to but I hear it's similar to the one in Perryville. Any idea what the time table is for table games there?

Also they should be breaking ground on the Harrah's(or maybe they're making it a Binion's now) casino in downtown Baltimore soon I believe.

I heard they had no immediate plans to add tables there...apparently when they built out the casino building, it was assumed to be slots only and to add tables would take some more significant renovation work than MD Live or Hollywood would have to do. I believe the guy who owns Delaware Park also owns Ocean Downs, so I don't know how well he's really doing right now.

I don't know what DE Park minimums are nowadays, but I can't imagine Perryville would set their minimums higher than that.

I completely agree that MD Live will be $50-$100 mins for blackjack and baccarat, $25+ for craps for the first few weeks, and $100+ across the board wouldn't be out of the question on opening night, if it's packed enough.

Do not expect to see me posting one in the Casino Chip of the Day thread. ;-)



If you got one, I'd expect you'd be more interested in cashing it out, not taking pictures! It's kind of an odd denomination, just like the $20,000 chips issued in Atlantic City, which I saw once from a far distance at a craps table at Borgata. I only knew that's what they were because they were yellowish and in front of the gray $5,000 chips.

In all seriousness, I'd be surprised if anything higher than $1,000 in denomination was out on the main floor at MD Live. I've been to Parx once and except for baccarat and one or two craps tables with the big neon orange $1,000's, they didn't stock tables with anything over $500's.

From the Horseshoe Baltimore page, they plan to be open by summer 2014, and they are supposed to begin construction in the next month or so, assuming no additional lawsuits hold them up.

The PG casino cannot even legally start dealing cards until July 2016 or 30 months after the Horseshoe opens, whichever date arrives first.

nifty table min feature on their website that I hope MD Live gets too.



That is really cool and a nice thing to do.

In Connecticut $1000 chips are orange and are called pumpkins.

In Atl City...$1,000 Orange (called Pumpkins by all, they're slightly larger)...$5,000 Grey....never seen larger chips. This seems universal throughout town. Purple still $500.

lol.. in vegas the $1000 chips are called bananas because they're yellow.
it looked like it's the same size as all the smaller chips.

i wonder why nj/conn broke from the Vegas standard at $1000? and why oversized?
