Twin River’s Lincoln casino was responsible for the majority of revenue in the first half, generating $7.9m in revenue from $85.8m in total wagers, as players won $77.9m.

In comparison, the Twin River Tiverton casino reported $2.0m in revenue from $20.0m in wagers for the period, with consumers winning $18.0m. The two Twin River casinos are the only venues licensed to offer sports betting in the state.

In terms of online betting, revenue for the medium stood at $2.1m from $26.3m in total wagers. Mobile wagering has only been legal in Rhode Island since this area of the market opened in early September 2019.
