Maryland Live! Casino Launches Recruitment Efforts for Young Adults Aged 18+ for All Available Positions

New Maryland Gaming Legislation lowers hiring age of casino employees to 18+, starting October 1, 2015

Maryland Live! Casino, an affiliate of The Cordish Companies, has launched a new hiring initiative aimed at recruiting young adults aged 18 and up for all available positions at the Hanover, MD, casino. The campaign follows the passage of new Maryland gaming legislation that lowers the allowable hiring age of casino employees to 18, beginning October 1, 2015, opening the door for qualified young adults to start their career early and obtain a well-paying casino job. HB1111 was passed by the Maryland General Assembly during the 2015 Legislative Session and signed into law by Governor Larry Hogan on April 14, 2015.

Job opportunities are available in all departments, with the exception of bartenders, who must still be 21 years of age. In addition, younger candidates interested in pursuing a job as a table games dealer must first successfully complete a dealer school training course before being considered for a position. Anne Arundel Community College is currently offering Dealer School informational sessions to individuals interested in learning what it takes to be a casino dealer. Visit for dates and information.

“This is an incredible opportunity for young adults seeking to embark on a career in the gaming industry or simply to secure a well-paying job while going to school,” said Rob Norton, President, Maryland Live! Casino. “We’re always looking for dynamic employees who are inspired by new challenges, who are happy and excited to come to work every day, and who want to have a lot of fun and engage the customer. Quality customer service is an integral part of the Maryland Live! Casino experience.”
