BALTIMORE — The Horseshoe Casino Baltimore is scheduled to open in late August.

Casino officials say the $442 million casino is scheduled to open on the night of Aug. 26, pending regulatory approval.

The casino will feature 122,000 square feet of slot machines and table games like blackjack. It also will have two celebrity chef restaurants and a steakhouse. The facility will have about 2,500 slot machines and 100 table games. It also will have a World Series of Poker-branded poker room.

Casino officials say it will employee about 1,700 people.

The Horseshoe Casino will be the fifth casino to open in Maryland. The state of Maryland has awarded a sixth casino license to MGM to open a casino at National Harbor in Prince George's County. It could open in 2016.
