Maryland Casino Guide
Online Casinos in Maryland
Maryland has not legalized online casinos yet. The law would suggest that anyone partaking in online gambling in the state could be in trouble. In fact, operators could face serious consequences, like jail time, if they participate in any online gambling business affairs. There has been no effort by the government to legalize any forms of gambling online in the state yet.
Compared to other states in America, Maryland isn't opposed to the idea of gambling completely. Maryland is home to a handful of casinos so if more states begin to pass bills in favor of online gaming, there is potential for Maryland to do the same.

However, gaming regulations require a minimum payback of 87% on any one machine and all machines within a casino must have an average payback of 90% to 95%.
