Bally’s Corporation has announced that the expanded casino floor at Bally’s Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort, Rhode Island, has officially opened.
The 40,000 square feet of gaming space includes 355 slot machines, 57 table games, 27 stadium-style games alongside hall seating for 150 guests and an exclusive dining area.
“We are pleased to celebrate today’s grand opening alongside so many of our valued partners, including Governor McKee, House and Senate Leadership, our union workforce, and our regulators, the Division of Lottery and Department of Business Regulation,” said Craig Eaton, Head of Bally’s Rhode Island Operations.
“Our expanded gaming floor, combined with other property improvements, represents a $100m investment in Rhode Island to generate much needed revenue for our home state.”
“Our expanded footprint also blends with the existing facility design, incorporating several feng shui principles such as a large waterfall. Additionally, a new, comfortable, and contemporary food hall provides seating for 150 guests, including an exclusive private dining area with exterior views.
“Finally, adjacent to the new 16-seat casino bar is ‘Plume & Proof,’ a cigar lounge with access to an outdoor smoking patio.”
To celebrate the grand opening, several of Bally’s representatives, including Eaton, Paul Juliano, Senior VP, and Tony Rohrer, Regional VP & General Manager, were joined at Bally’s Lincoln by Governor Daniel McKee, Speaker of the House K. Joseph Shekarchi and Senator Frank Ciccone.
“This expansion marks another important milestone for not only Bally’s Lincoln but for Rhode Island itself,” explained Governor McKee.
“We are grateful to Bally’s for its ongoing partnership that contributes to our workforce, our economy, and our State as a whole. I also want to congratulate Bally’s on the successful completion of this crucial expansion and continued investment in Rhode Island’s future.”
The expansion has fulfilled a key component of the Marc A. Crisafulli Economic Development Act, enacted by the General Assembly that was signed into law by Governor McKee.
“I was pleased to sponsor the legislation that paved the way for today’s grand opening ceremony, and I congratulate Bally’s on its continued investment in our State and its workforce,” added Speaker Shekarchi.
