Tiverton Casino Gets Another Look From NETG Staff

It’s been over a month since Twin River Management moved it’s Newport Grand slot parlor 20 minutes east to Tiverton, Rhode Island. With a chance to stay in the hotel this time, the NETG trio of Bin, Bert & Miguel descended on the newest casino in New England.

Tiverton Casino Hotel – Our Last Summer Trip Report

The Hotel

Tiverton Hotel

The three story hotel is to the right of the casino. The rooms are a little small, with a very bright ambiance.  No bureaus, but adequate shelving below the wall attached flat TV takes its place, similar to MGM Springfield. There is no coffee maker in room, but the Dunkin Donuts attached between the casino and hotel is open 24 hours.  The beds are some of the most comfortable of all New England casino hotels I’ve ever experienced.  The quiet, comfortable and restful rooms at Tiverton Casino’s Hotel are highly recommended. 

**Noteworthy – If you are staying over, it’s good to know that the third floor rooms have refrigerators.

SUPPER at Trattoria Romana

Inside Trattoria Romana

This fine dining Italian Cuisine was a smart choice for Tiverton. There are other restaurants, each a little different -Trattoria Romana in Lincoln, Johnston & Wakefield, as well as the newest Trattoria Express in Lincoln. The concept & experience at Trattoria Romana were designed to offer a comfortable dining experience with moderate prices. The menu is large and has something for everyone. The chicken dishes were very tender. I had the Vitello Saltimbocca alla Romana – Veal medallions topped with imported Prosciutto di Parma, mozzarella cheese and fresh sage pan-seared in a marsala wine sauce and served over pappardelle pasta. The veal was delicious in a subtle sauce. All the entrees were large portions. See above about which floor has refrigerators  to take the rest of your meal home.

**Noteworthy –  Torre Restaurant Group and Trattoria Romana gift cards are currently NOT accepted at Tiverton Casino Hotel.

RANDOM NOTES

If you want to play Pai Gow Poker, expect to be patient.  Dealers are very slow (slowing down the already slow-paced game) and had to keep checking house way for setting their cards. Low Limit on a Sunday night was $25. As with most casinos (but not MGM Springfield) the Fortune bonus can be bet with any denomination, but $5 gets the envy addition.

Vents in floor recycle air throughout the casino

Smoke continues to be more problematic than they thought. The modern air exchange system cant seemingly keep up on busy weekend nights.

The casino feels more spacious than other New England casinos of comparable size, such as Oxford Casino Hotel in Maine, and both MGM Springfield and Plainridge Park Raceway & Casino in Massachusetts.

Craps is nothing special, but does offer $10 limit tables. There is no special bets like the Firebet or the All Tall, All Small.

Cashier is slow and undermanned.

Craft Beer, Red Sox & Patriots. What a night!

They have a special Free SlotPlay match promotion going on, matching CT & MA casinos mailers.

IPourit – card connected to credit card must be returned or $4 charge

Finally, it seems that this casino will be busier than Newport Grand ever was. Table games, stadium gambling, high end dining, the iPourIt Beer Wall, and a hotel are definitely huge upgrades. Tiverton is not pretending to be more than what it is – a locals casino. It will do well in the New England Casino landscape.

The Monday Link – “The Gamblers Ten Commandments”

Every Monday – The Monday Link

I love the Wizard of Odds website. If you are a gambler of any game, experience, or status, you should have this site bookmarked. It is my number one resource for:

  • Game odds, strategies & calculations
  • General Gambling info – definitions, money management, etiquette and FAQ’s
  • Playing simulations for free and learning correct strategies

About The Wizard of Odds himself – Michael Shackleford

This site was born on June 19, 1997. At first it was titled Mike’s Gambling Page. It was a good time to start a web site about gambling, as there were few good ones at the time. With plenty of shelf space, the site quickly became popular and took on a life of its own.  The Wizard of Odds is Michael Shackleford, a former professional actuary who has made a career of analyzing casino games.

He writes most of the content for this site, drawing on his training in mathematics and actuarial science. It started out as a hobby, then as it grew and became more popular he moved it to its own domain and had it professionally designed. Michael writes, “I’m proud to have built something that’s used by thousands of people every day and is known around the world for providing quality, authoritative information.”

Today’s “Monday Link”

Our link is not to be underestimated in its importance to all who gamble – whether professional or recreational.  Please heed the Wizard’s

The Ten Commandments of Gambling

You’ll be a better gambler, and a better person if you do!
