Twin River Casino Unveils Tiverton Casino Project

Twin River Casino has needed a hotel for years, but under state law, was prohibited from building a hotel on its premises to protect the viability of Providence hotels. However this summer, the House unanimously voted to repeal the legislation that imposed such restrictions. A hotel was in the future.

Twin River Group Management Hopes to Move Newport Grand close to the Mass Border to Extend more Competition

th (5)It’s been a busy year for Twin River.

  1. Hotel building approved.
  2. New 2nd floor dedicated to non-smoking gaming
  3. Additional table games, and poker available soon.
  4. The purchase of Newport Grand Slots with the possibility of moving the license to Tiverton.

A hotel was in the news yesterday, but not in Lincoln where the parent casino lives. In Tiverton!

The Battlefield for Casino Supremacy in Rhode Island & Southeast Mass

The Battlefield for Casino Supremacy in Rhode Island & Southeast Mass

The new proposal by Twin River Management Group is to build an 80,000-square-foot casino resembling the town’s public library, with an attached three-story 80-room hotel, for a site off Route 81.

While few people attended the Tiverton Town meeting unveiling the proposal, residents seem to be in favor.  However, their concerns about the casino’s impact on traffic, the environment, the residential neighborhood and how much the town stood to gain from gaming will still be a challenge if the project is to move forward.

John E. Taylor Jr., chairman of the Twin River Management Group board of directors, said they listened to residents’ concerns and adapted their design to meet them. For example, the site plan places the casino, hotel and parking lots on the southwest portion of the property, out of view from the residential neighborhood, Taylor said. A roundabout is proposed at the entrance to handle traffic. The main entrance road and an emergency access road skirt the wetlands.

The casino would have 1,000 to 1,100 slot machines and 25 to 35 table games, and Taylor said they are looking at amenities such as a full-service restaurant and entertainment. They are still calculating the economic impact that the casino and hotel could have, but Taylor said after the meeting he was confident that it could generate about $4 million for the town.

Plainridge Park Casino

Plainridge Park

The Tiverton location was chosen to compete Plainridge Park Casino & Raceway, just over the line in Plainville, Massachusetts. Officials told residents in previous meetings that they believe a Tiverton casino would generate $4 million a year for the town, which is about 10 percent of the town’s annual budget.

For these plans to continue, the next steps include:

  • The Town Council will have to petition the General Assembly to place a question on the ballot, which the Twin River group hopes will be ready for the November 2016 elections.
  • Local and statewide voters will have to approve the measure.
  • Twin River must be able to transfer the licenses from Newport Grand to the new Tiverton casino.

The battle continues for Southeastern New England Casino Supremacy.  The smallest state in the U.S. is ready for the challenge!

That’s all for now.
