Two casino resorts, MGM Springfield, which opened in August 2018, and Encore Boston Harbor, under development to open in 2019. One more casino license may be issued for the southeastern part of the state, but the process has been delayed due to uncertainty about potential competition from the planned Mashpee Wampanoag casino.

Tiverton Casino Hotel Opens Today

Tiverton, Rhode IslandIt’s been difficult keeping up with all the casino news in New England. Openings, closings, and possible sales all going on is putting NETG to the task – but we’re up to it.

Is Plainridge Park slot parlor up to it? Forty-five miles separate Plainridge Park Casino and their newest competition. Between the opening of MGM Springfield, Twin River Casino & Hotel, and the constant competition from the CT casinos,  can Plainridge handle another casino battle?

Tiverton Casino

Well, it’s going to, because the new guys are opening today – it’s welcome to New England, Tiverton Casino Hotel.

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.

A few statistics to know –  It will have:

  • a 85,000 square foot casino
  • 84-room, three-story hotel
  • two fine dining restaurants
  • a foodcourt
  • The casino will have 1,000 slot machines and 32 table games.

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.

Tomorrow NETG will be taking an early trek for a quick look at the new Rhode Island casino.  Look for a review in the next few days.
