ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials say the two losing bidders for a casino license near the nation’s capital have agreed not to oppose a commission’s decision to grant the license to MGM Resorts International.
The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency said Tuesday that Penn National Gaming and Greenwood Racing have signed an agreement that they will not file a lawsuit seeking to have the decision reversed.
MGM won the state’s sixth casino license in December to build the casino next to National Harbor in Prince George’s County. It is the last license currently allowed under the law.
Donald Fry, chairman of the state commission that granted the license, says the panel took strong steps to make sure the awarding of the license was consistent with the criteria created by the state’s Legislature.
