Rhode Island House approves online gambling bill


Online gambling is now legal in Rhode Island after Gov. Dan McKee signed the bill.

The legislation, requested by Bally’s Corporation,  allows residents over the age of 21 to access existing table games remotely through a computer or mobile app. Players will have to be in Rhode Island to play.

“This legislation provides an added convenience to Rhode Islanders who would like to play the existing table games offered at Twin River via their mobile devices,” said Senate President Dominick Ruggerio, one of the sponsors.
