Virtual Blackjack in Rhode Island

The next state to get virtual blackjack may be Rhode Island. The Rhode Island lottery commission is currently looking into adding the machines to the Twin River slot parlor in Lincoln.

Officials for the Rhode Island lottery said this would not be expanding the gambling in the state so they would not need a voter approval. Virtual blackjack does not use a dealer or real cards. It is played by players sitting around a computer and a screen where it simulates live blackjack. This game has become a hot topic as many states have been looking into adding this to casinos to increase tax revenue.

The Governor of Rhode Island who is not particularly a fan of gambling says this would be an extension to the states lottery and would be legal to implement. There is currently more then one slot parlor in Rhode Island but others have not applied for permission to offer virtual blackjack to their customers.
