Potomac Casino: Snake Eyes

Potomac Casino: Snake Eyes

The deal for a huge casino 5 miles outside DC at Maryland’s National Harbor has gone sour. A state government working group advised against granting a license for the $800 million gambling joint on the banks of the Potomac in Prince Georges County. Five casinos have already been licensed by the state, and of them three are currently relieving customers of their cash.

National Harbor offers many advantages to a casino operation. It has water taxi service to Old Town Alexandria, a bunch of mediocre eateries and sufficient hotel rooms to accomodate high rollers and the hookers who love them. Casinos are 24/7 enterprises, and National Harbor’s Children Museum can provide daytime daycare for the kids of bored housewives busy gambling away the grocery money.
