HANOVER, Md., April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Maryland Live! Casino generated
the top slot revenue in the mid-Atlantic gaming market for March 2013 with
$44,613,545, outperforming all other regional competitors. Compared to other
facilities in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the property's
net revenue was more than 20% higher than the next highest competitor. The
results mark the strongest revenue month to date for Maryland Live! Casino,
which opened to the public in June 2012.

One of the largest and most profitable casinos in the country, Maryland Live!
Casino is now poised for a record-setting month in April with the addition of
more than 100 live action table games, which opened to the public on April 11,
2013. The property also plans to open a new Poker Room with more than 50
traditional poker tables this Summer.

The State of Maryland is also well-positioned to benefit from the additional
revenue generated from table games. Currently, the State receives an average
of $1M per day in taxes from Maryland Live!, making it one of the highest
taxpayers in the State. As of the end of March 2013, the State has already
received $236M in taxes from Maryland Live! Casino, since its June 2012

Maryland Live! Casino is owned and operated by The Cordish Companies, which is
actively vying for the final available gaming license in the City of
Philadelphia, in order to develop a $425 million Live! Hotel & Casino in the
Stadium District (in partnership with Greenwood Gaming). In addition, the
Company has applied for a Category 2 license in Massachusetts and is currently
in the process of evaluating several excellent sites within the State as
possible locations for the casino.

destination that we have created at Maryland Live! Casino," said Joe Weinberg,
Managing Partner, The Cordish Companies. "The Cordish Companies has a long
history of developing some of the most profitable, best-in-class casino
