Sportsbook Regulation in Rhode Island
Rhode Island was one of the early leaders in legalizing sports betting. RI passed S 2045 back in 2018, making it possible to place wagers at the state’s two retail sportsbooks. The law was expanded in 2019 with SB 37 to allow mobile betting at the two Twin River casino sportsbooks. Prospective license-holders are overseen by the Rhode Island Lottery.
The problem with Rhode Island’s fledgling sports betting industry has been the need to register in-person at one of the state’s land-based sportsbooks. However, that rule has now been scrapped: you can now register for a sportsbook account at home through your PC or smartphone.
Rhode Island’s sportsbooks practise responsible gambling in accordance with Rhode Island Lottery rules. You can contact a problem gambling helpline in the state at 1-877-9GAMBLE.
