Twin River Casino Launches Table Games Including Blackjack

Twin River Casino, located in Rhode Island, has finally launched table games such as craps and blackjack. The casino organized an official ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the launch, and state legislators, along with Governor Lincoln Chafee, attended the event.

Speaking on the occasion, Chafee said that the casinos goals will always remain the same—jobs for residents and revenue for Rhode Island. The casino, which has installed 65 new tables, has recruited around 400 new croupiers. John Taylor, chairman of Twin River, said that the casino’s workforce is now between 1,400 and 1,500 employees, adding that the casino is proud of generating employment for Rhode Island residents.

However, everybody in Rhode Island is not happy about it. Randy Noka, a representative of the Narragansett Indian Tribe, said that his tribe is not at all happy about the developments that have enabled Twin River Casino to launch blackjack and craps games. The tribe had been making several unsuccessful attempts to establish an Indian casino in Rhode Island for the past six years, but the proposal was rejected by former governors.

In November, Twin River Casino’s proposal for expansion from slots parlor to full-fledged casino with table games was approved. Besides table games, the casino now offers around 4,500 slots.
