RI gets extra $7M after casino adds table games

LINCOLN, R.I. - A gamble by Rhode Island voters to allow table games at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln has paid off to the tune of $7 million for state government since last year.

The Providence Journal reports  that state and casino revenue figures through the end of February also show that Twin River's take from the table games is nearly $45 million before expenses. Casino officials declined to release a net revenue figure.

Voters approved the gambling expansion at Twin River in 2012 and the casino began offering blackjack, craps and other games last June. The state gets 18 percent of the table game revenue.

State figures show that while table games have created a new revenue stream for the state, revenue from Twin River's video lottery terminals is down.
