In November 2008 Maryland voters approved a referendum to allow slot machines within their state.

A maximum of 15,000 machines are permitted statewide and one facility is permitted in each of five locations: Anne Arundel County, Cecil County, Allegany County, Worcester County and the city of Baltimore.

The Ocean Downs Racetrack in Worchester county and Hollywood Casino Perryville in Cecil county opened in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Maryland Live! in Anne Arundel County opened in June 2012.
The Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort in Allegany County opened in mid-2013 and Harrah's Baltimore is expected to open by mid-2014.
No public information is available about the actual payback percentages on gaming machines in Maryland. However, gaming regulations require a minimum payback of 87%.
If you want to order a drink while playing, be aware that Maryland gaming regulations do not allow casinos to provide free alcoholic beverages. The minimum gambling age is 21 for casinos and 18 for pari-mutuel wagering.
