Twin River Casino adds amenities to its 4,500 slot machines and more than 100 table gamesUS.- Rhode Island has its first poker room thanks to the opening of a 16-table one at the Twin River Casino. There, the full scale casino offers games such as Texas hold’em and seven-card stud. The operating hours are from noon to 4 a.m. during the week, but hours are expanded during the weekend. And from Friday afternoon to 4 a.m. Monday, the room is open.

With the opening, the venue that already has 4,500 slot machines and more than 100 table games becomes a more robust casino. Furthermore, the owners are planning a 200-room hotel, which could have major impact in their revenues.

Meanwhile in the neighbouring Massachusetts, there have been slots casinos opened up. Analysis predicts that Rhode Island and Newport Grand’s gambling industry could grant the state more than US$ 350 million annually in tax revenue.
