Horseshoe BaltimoreHorseshoe Casino Baltimore officially welcomed its first guests when the casino opened its doors to the public late last month. The dynamic gaming entertainment complex pairs the best of Las Vegas-style gaming with unique amenities and local influences to create a casino experience that is unique to Charm City.

Controlled by Caesars Growth Partners, a joint venture between Caesars Acquisition Company and Caesars Entertainment Corporation, Horseshoe Casino Baltimore is designed to extend the city’s tourism district south from the famed Inner Harbor and neighboring sports venues M&T Bank Stadium and Oriole Park at Camden Yards, according to company press materials. The casino development is fully integrated within the surrounding area and will maximize connectivity with existing hospitality operators as well as other cultural and nightlife attractions. The casino site was selected by the state and the city to foster economic growth and create new jobs while expanding Baltimore’s diverse entertainment offerings.

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore will benefit from the wealth of experience in gaming, entertainment and urban renewal brought by Caesars Entertainment, the manager of the property, as well as Rock Gaming, a major partner in the project. Specializing in the creation of city-integrated casino developments, this project marks the fourth venture between the partners following the openings of Horseshoe Casino Cleveland (2012), Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati (2013) and ThistleDown Racino (2013).

“Horseshoe Casino Baltimore is well-positioned to serve the approximately one million members of our Total Rewards loyalty program who live in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area and introduce the Horseshoe brand to new guests,” said Gary Loveman, chairman, CEO and president of Caesars Entertainment in a prepared statement. “We are proud to open a gaming-entertainment resort that embodies the city-integrated concept, which complements features of the surrounding area and other local businesses and attractions to create an experience that is unique to this location.

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore boasts more than just world-class gaming amenities. In addition to the more than 2,500 slots, 100 table games and World Series of Poker room the entertainment complex features a variety of nightlife options such as 14forty, a 24-hour, multi-level entertainment venue, and signature restaurants from celebrity chefs Guy Fieri, Aaron Sanchez and John Besh.
