Mobile sports wagering bill proposed in Rhode Island

Senate President Dominick Ruggerio has introduced a bill to allow mobile sports wagering in Rhode Island.

Ruggerio proposed the bill on Wednesday and said mobile gaming would generate greater revenue.

Twin River Casino in Lincoln accepted its first bets on professional sports in November. However, Ruggerio would like to enable the creation of an app to access Twin River’s sportsbook from anywhere in Rhode Island.

The proposal suggests creating accounts in person at either Twin River or Tiverton casinos, allowing staff to verify the player’s age.

Rhode Island’s first sports wagers were accepted on 26 November, although the state enacted legislation back in June.

Delays pushed back the October start date, reportedly costing the state $12m in expected revenue.
