Less than a year after launching two retail sports books, Rhode Island mobile sports betting is ready to launch.
Governor Gina Raimondo signed into law S 37, a bill adding mobile Rhode Island sports betting to the state’s lottery-run operation. Raimondo also spurred the start of Rhode Island’s sports book operations last year by including sports betting revenue in her budget.
Rhode Island sports betting is legal at the state’s two casinos: Twin River Lincoln and Twin River Tiverton. Those casinos both opened their sports gambling operations in 2018 and plan to expand into permanent space this year.
Twin River spokesperson Patti Doyle could not provide a timeline for launch, but said the product will be welcomed.
