HANOVER, Md., Dec. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cordish's Maryland Live! Casino has been named the BEST CASINO IN MARYLAND by Strictly Slots Magazine, a leading gaming publication dedicated exclusively to slots players.

The magazine's annual "Best of Slots Awards" survey asks readers to vote for the casinos that offer the best selection of slot machines and promotions in the country. Maryland Live! swept the majority of categories among Maryland casinos, taking 1st Place honors for Best Overall Casino, Best Variety of Slots, and Best Slot Club Promotions, led by the popularity of the new Giant Jackpots program that guarantees jackpot wins from $50,000 up to $100,000. Since launching in May 2015, six Giant Jackpots have hit for a total of $550,171, with each player betting less than $3.00 on the winning spin!

Maryland Live! also took top honors for Best Video Poker, Best Reel Slots, Best Progressive Slots, Best Nickel Slots, Best Dollar Slots, Best High-end Slot Area, and Best Slot Club.

"Maryland Live! Casino is honored to be recognized by the readers of Strictly Slots Magazine as the Best Casino in Maryland for slots," said Doug Shipley, EVP and General Manager, Maryland Live! Casino. "We're always looking for new and innovative slot programs to offer our customers, such as Giant Jackpots. The awards are a clear indication that they are satisfied with our product."

Maryland Live! Casino currently offers approximately 4,000 slot machines, and all slot machines are eligible for the progressive Giant Jackpot with the exception of electronic table games and video poker machines. As long as slot players are playing with their Live! Reward Card or Giant Jackpots Card properly inserted, they are immediately eligible to win the Giant Jackpot, regardless of the denomination, type of game, or length of time they play.

"Giant Jackpots has allowed us to attract new slot customers who may not have played at Maryland Live! before," continued Shipley. "It's not only been a game changer for the market, but a life changer for our lucky winners."

Slot denominations at Maryland Live! include 1¢, 2¢, 5¢, 10¢, 25¢, 50¢, $1 and $2; and a High Limit Slots Room that offers $5, $10, $25, $100 and $500 denominations.
