PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — iGaming in Rhode Island is now legal after Gov. Dan McKee signed the bill.

The legislation, requested by Bally’s Corporation,  allows residents over the age of 21 to access existing table games remotely — through a computer or mobile app. Players will have to be in Rhode Island to play.

A live dealer will be in place for all games.

“This legislation provides an added convenience to Rhode Islanders who would like to play the existing table games offered at Twin River via their mobile devices,” said Senate President Dominick Ruggerio, one of the sponsors.

All revenue sharing percentages remain the same as existing revenue ratios.
