Owned by the same company that owns Twin River, Twin River Management Group,  Tiverton Casino will be a full-service casino with 1,000 slot machines, 32 table games, an 84-room hotel and a sit-down Italian restaurant and quick food outlets.

Work began on the $140 million complex last September after the Tiverton Planning Board voted 6-1 to approve the construction plan. Twin River remains bullish on the East Coast gaming industry. Along with its Tiverton investment, the company recently acquired Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Delaware through a planned merger.
