There are more places to gamble than ever at the immensely popular MGM National Harbor. Today marked the debut of a 38,000-square-foot second-level casino which includes an expanded poker room, off-track horse betting, approximately 285 slot machines, a new bar, and a fast-casual restaurant. The new addition costs $48 million, according to a press release. The second-level gaming space will be open 24 hours a day.

“It’s a great result when positive customer demand drives a business to expand its offerings,” said Melonie Johnson, President and Chief Operating Officer of MGM National Harbor, in a press release. “This year, we have set new casino revenue marks. Expanding our gaming offerings will help us meet the desire of our customers for more luxury gaming entertainment space while welcoming new players to the resort as well. Most importantly, we are providing 250 additional jobs and additional tax revenues to Prince George’s County and the State of Maryland.”

The space’s new 700-square-foot terrace sounds picturesque, with views of National Harbor and the Potomac.
