Rhode Island lawmaker pushing for mobile sportsbetting

News on 28 Nov 2018

Rhode Island Democratic Senate President Dominick Ruggerio is reportedly poised to introduce a proposal in the legislative session beginning January 2019 that would allow mobile sportsbetting within State lines.

The implementation of mobile wagering, which would primarily generate more revenue for the State, will also provide convenient wagering options to Rhode Islanders who would place their bets through the Twin River Casino after registering an account, Ruggerio said Tuesday.

This development follows the launch of in-person sports betting at Twin River Casino this week, the first legal sports gambling facility in the New England region.  Twin River’s Tiverton facility is expected to begin sports gambling in early December.
