Rhode Island bill for mobile sports betting

News on 17 Jan 2019

Rhode Island isn’t wasting any time in expanding sports betting in the State with the introduction of a bill which would allow mobile sports betting.

The bill, introduced by Senate President Dominick Ruggerio, enables the development of a Twin River app enabling patrons to bet via their mobile devices within State lines.

“With the big crowds that are going up to Twin River, I think we need some kind of an app because people are getting disenchanted with the long waits up there, and a lot of people have walked out of there without placing bets. We don’t want that,” Ruggerio said.

Under the provisions, patrons would have to create accounts in person at the casino for identity and age verification purposes.
