will it just be slots like in arundel mills?
 

no i think it's tables as well. i believe the state only gets like 25% of the profits. 
the commercials make it seem like the money is guaranteed towards education, but it's not.  if it were, i would be more inclined to like the measure, esp. for PG county schools which are not the best

oh so it will be tables, too. yeah, its def going to be a mess with traffic/congestion and the types of folks who hang around casinos.  on one hand, wouldn't mind seeing some other stuff in the area but don't know if i like it being at the harbor.  oh well...guess we will see. 

also, i am wondering if they could've made an agreement to atleast hire majority MD residents and a percentage of DC/VA folks and not bring in too many people from outside.

Most MD contracts have a clause to hire local residents only. The percentage varies based on the size and impact of the project.

On the traffic issue, it will only be like that for a couple months after opening in my opinion. That's what happened with hollywood and Maryland live. I don't even remember they exist most days. O
