Rhode Island Governor Signs iGaming Bill Into Law

Yesterday, June 22nd, Gov. Dan McKee officially signed into law Senate Bill 948, which expands Bally’s land-based casino monopoly into iGaming. However, the governor decided to sign the legislation just hours before time ran out.

Approval of the House of Representatives and the Senate:

A vote was held last Thursday where members of the Rhode Island House of Representatives and the Senate officially voted to validate the state’s iGaming legislation into law, then sent it to the governor’s desk for him to decide whether to sign or veto, until June 23rd. However, since he decided to sign it, he has officially given permission for online slots and table games to go live from April 2024, meaning that a live dealer will be placed for each game.
