PressBox is announcing the launch of, a comprehensive online outlet on gaming in the state that will focus on casinos, the lottery, horse racing and other aspects of the gaming industry.

Information on the new website from Center Maryland’s strategic partner is expected to include such topics as how to play new video lottery terminals, the latest on Maryland Lottery games, horse racing updates, political and legislative news related to gaming, and what’s happening at area casinos.

“We are excited to add another vehicle for our followers and the Maryland sports community where PressBox will serve as a main information resource,” said John Coulson, managing partner & vice president of sales and marketing. “The gaming industry is growing rapidly, and we believe enables us to provide a key platform covering that industry and its newsmakers. Additionally, it furthers our mission to expand the PressBox product line."

Veteran journalist Bill Ordine – who has written about gaming for more than two decades, including a long-running casino travel column for the Philadelphia Inquirer -- will serve as the website’s lead columnist. He has worked as a reporter and editor in both sports and news at the Baltimore Sun and Inquirer, and wrote about horse racing and poker for the Sun.

“It’s exciting to be writing for Baltimore’s sports fans and gaming enthusiasts,” said Ordine, “and to be able to contribute to all of the PressBox platforms. With, we’ll be writing about the local gaming scene several times a week with the goal of helping those in our audience who choose to gamble to do so with solid, authoritative information.”

PressBox, a Center Maryland partner and the region’s most comprehensive source of sports information, will add to its extensive portfolio of a free monthly newspaper, website, weekly television show and email newsletter.
