The House of Representatives and the Senate passed a bill last Thursday that may go before voters in November. It is possible that two of the states slots parlors will become casinos. No amendments had to be made to the bill for it to be passed.

Twin River in Lincoln, and Newport Grand in Newport currently operate virtual blackjack and video lottery gaming machines. The new bill will allow for table games to be added.

Supporters of the bill feel it will be good for economic development in the communities and the state. They also fear losing revenues to Massachusetts, where a casino could open across the border. Casinos in Rhode Island would help keep gambling money in the state.

The Governor is the next stop for the bill to be approved. If it is signed by the Governor, voters will have the choice on final approval.

Return to Rhode Island Casinos.
