Bally’s Twin River Lincoln Opens New Casino Gaming Area

Published

on

 

Bally’s Corporation announced that the Bally’s Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort officially opened 40,000 square feet of new gaming space in a landmark expansion of its casino floor. This expansion fulfills a key component of the Marc A. Crisafulli Economic Development Act enacted by the General Assembly and signed into law by Governor McKee in 2021.

To mark the occasion, Bally’s representatives, including Craig Eaton, Head of Bally’s Rhode Island Operations, Paul Juliano, Senior Vice President, Craig Sculos, Senior Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, and Tony Rohrer, Regional Vice President & General Manager, were joined by Governor Daniel McKee, Speaker of the House K. Joseph Shekarchi, Senator Frank Ciccone, who serves as Chair of Joint Committee on State Lottery, Lincoln Town Administrator Philip Gould, and George Nee, President, AFL-CIO, at Bally’s Lincoln for a grand opening ceremony.

“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. Our expanded gaming floor, combined with other property improvements, represents a $100 million investment in Rhode Island to generate much needed revenue for our home state,” Mr. Eaton said.

“The new gaming area includes 355 slot machines, 57 table games, 27 stadium-style games, and a first-class, high limit gaming area. 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,” Mr. Eaton added.

“This expansion marks another important milestone for not only Bally’s Lincoln but for Rhode Island itself. 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,” Governor McKee said.

“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,” Speaker Shekarchi said.

“I applaud Bally’s efforts to continuously reinvest in itself and this State by improving upon an already wonderful gaming facility, and in so doing, fulfilling their commitment to constantly improve all they offer their customers, stakeholders, and the taxpayers of Rhode Island,” Senate President Dominick Ruggerio said.

“Today is an important day for not only the tradespeople we represent who built this beautiful addition, but also for the close to 1000 union members who service and operate this facility day in and day out. We celebrate the fact that over 20 unions and hundreds of union members played a role in expanding, modernizing, and operating Bally’s Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort. Thank you to Bally’s for its continued commitment to preserve and enhance the family sustaining wages and benefits opportunities that it provides to our members,” George Nee said.

“On behalf of the Town of Lincoln, congratulations to the entire Bally’s team on today’s grand opening and we thank you for your dedication to your host community of Lincoln,” Administrator Gould said.
