A few years ago, if you lived in New England and had the urge to do a little gambling, you’d have to make the long trip down to the big casino in Connecticut. Today, thanks to a $200 million restoration and renovation of what was Lincoln Park Dog Track, in Lincoln, Rhode Island the Twin River Casino is operating at full tilt.
Visitors to the ultra modern casino will be impressed by the wide open floor plan and the incredible number of slot machines. At last count, there were more than 4,700 brand new slot machines. You can play for a penny a pull or go all out and hit the $25 machines. There is also a Player’s Club for those who frequent the Casino. As you play, you earn points on a magnetic card and they can then be turned in for gifts, restaurant discounts and admission to different events.
Speaking of events, the Twin River RI casino is host to many events throughout the year. A 29,000 square foot event arena is often filled by some famous headline performers. The center hosts some great live entertainment and has been doing very well over the past year. There is plenty of music and acting going on at Twin Rivers Casino. Additionally, the facility is also available for banquets and special events like weddings and business meetings.
Indulge yourself at the Wicked Good Bar & Grill, a fully stocked bar that also serves tasty light fare. There are a total of 13 restaurants (2 are bars/restaurants) for your enjoyment. The award winning Fred & Steve’s Steakhouse serves up some of the best steaks anywhere. You can also choose from many other specialties like fish or chicken made just the way you like it. Other popular dining options include a hotdog and some fresh cut fries at Nathan’s, coffee and a tasty donut at Dunkin Donuts, American fare at Johnny Rockets and a little bit of everything at the Twin Heart Buffet.
The Twin River in RI is only a few miles from Providence, RI and maybe a 45 minute car ride from Boston. Customers have been packing the place since it was transformed from a tired old dog track to a sprawling casino and off site simulcast dog and horse racing venue.
Twin Rivers Casino RI is home to the famous Catch a Rising Star Comedy Club. Many well known comedians like Gilbert Gottfried appear at the Twin River Casino RI. Up and coming talented young comedians often get their big break performing in the RI Comedy Club. Have some laughs and some fun the next time you visit the Twin Rivers RI by checking out the acts at Catch a Rising Star.
If you are coming from outside the area, you might want to stay overnight. The Twin River Casino has teamed up with the Providence Marriott Downtown to offer some excellent “stay and play” packages. Just a 10 minute ride from the Twin Rivers RI, you’ll be in the center of Rhode Island and in addition to the casino, you’ll be close to the beach and other area attractions. Bet a little. Play a little. Have lot’s of fun!
