Orchid Gaming & Smoking Patio Is Now Open At Live! Casino & Hotel
Orchid Becomes Maryland's First and Only Full-Service Outdoor Gaming Area That Allows Casino Patrons to Smoke While Enjoying Their Favorite Slots and Table Games
HANOVER, MD (May 3, 2018) - Live! Casino & Hotel today opened the new ORCHID GAMING & SMOKING PATIO to the public with a ceremonial "Cigar-Cutting" to welcome the State of Maryland's first and only full-service outdoor gaming area that allows casino patrons to smoke, while playing their favorite Slots and Table Games.
The new, visually-stunning Orchid casino floor features 12 live action table games, including Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette; plus 28 electronic table positions, including "Dealer-Assist" Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps and Roulette, and Bar Top terminals. In addition, more than 150 of the latest slot machines are available, including Video Poker, in denominations ranging from $.01 to $10.
Orchid Gaming & Smoking Patio is also the first in the market to offer Ticket In/Ticket Out (TITO) Tables, enabling players to move between slots and table games without carrying chips to the main cage. Casino customers can enjoy non-stop gaming action 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year (weather permitting).
"Live! is committed to continuous improvement and developing new and different experiences for our guests," said Robert J. Norton, President of Cordish Global Gaming. "With Orchid, we have created a completely unique environment with a blend of gaming, music, design, and an upscale bar. Combine this amenity with the new luxury Live! Hotel, opening this month, and you have a destination unlike any other in Maryland."
Orchid features an extensive cigar program, including the finest offerings from Arturo, Monte Christo, Atabey and Byron, as well as special Live! editions from Titan. The exclusive bar features lounge seating and Live! Casino's vast collection of spirits, including special barrel-aged cocktails.
The Orchid is one of the most significant flowers in Asian culture, symbolizing wealth and fortune. The design of the indoor/outdoor space at Orchid Gaming & Smoking Patio is focused on the layering of the four elements. Warm woods, natural materials, and plantings embrace the element of earth. The theatrics of dramatic lighting combined with an open-air perimeter represent the element of air. The fire feature is a contemporary fireplace designed to keep guests cozy and warm from the cool weather elements. Water cascades throughout the space from structural columns and a perimeter screen to complete the theme.
