Maryland Live Casino in Anne Arundel County is planning to offer table games the spring, its owner said Wednesday.

The casino, which opened in June, also will begin 24-hour operations before the end of the year. Both table games and all-day operation are allowed thanks to the passage of Question 7 on the Maryland ballot, which will lead to a new casino being built in Prince George's County.

About 150 tables will be added to the casino floor, including games like blackjack, roulette and poker. The casino expects to lose less than 10 percent of its slot machines as a result of the additions.

David Cordish, chairman of casino owner Cordish Cos., told reporters that the company is thinking about adding a hotel with conference space to the casino at Arundel Mills mall. There are no immediate plans, though, spokeswoman Carmen Gonzales said.

The casino expects to add more than 1,200 jobs due to the expansion. The casino is offering a free school for prospective dealers in January.
