State lawmakers in Rhode Island approved a measure that will allow the two racetrack-slot parlors in that state, Twin River and Newport Grand, to operate 24-hours on weekends and holidays.
The two slot parlors will be open from Fridays at 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. Monday morning in addition to its normal weekday schedule. The facilities will also operate 24-hours on both state and federal holidays.
The new law is to last for a year and must be renewed by lawmakers for 24-hour gaming to continue after that period. In other related news, R.I. lawmakers opposed increasing the minimum age to play slots to age 21.
