- The Sportsbook Rhode Island app and website got a few quality of life upgrades.
- Both the Twin River Tiverton and Lincoln casinos and sportsbooks remain closed, but the online sportsbook is operational.
LINCOLN, R.I. – The Sportsbook Rhode Island app and website has received a couple of upgrades during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
‘Sportsbook Rhode Island’ is the official brand for both of Rhode Island sportsbooks. Both land-based sports betting venues are located in the Twin River Tiverton and Twin River Lincoln casinos. The sportsbooks are operated by IGT and William Hill.
“Recent IGT PlaySports technology updates for the Rhode Island Lottery provide Sportsbook Rhode Island users an elevated player experience. These updates also position the Rhode Island Lottery for success when professional sports return in full force,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President.
An example of the enhanced experience is that Rhode Island sports betting now has a much wider betting menu. For example, bettors can now bet on head to head matchups on which team will win more regular season games in the NFL.
That is not all. The sports betting website and app has been streamlined, making it much easier to place bets. Doing so will encourage people to use their app instead of going to other platforms.
The upgrade also came with a few updates that bettors can take advantage of right now. Although bettors in Rhode Island cannot go to the casino to make bets, they can wager online through the website and app.
But, there are hardly any U.S.-based legal sports bets to be made due to all major sports leagues shutting down. But that is not true for the entire world. There are very few leagues in the world that are active and Sportsbook Rhode Island has odds on them.
For example, Sportsbook Rhode Island has odds on Russian table tennis and Belarusian soccer. Neither leagues would normally be popular to wager on, but Sportsbook Rhode Island wants to give bettors something to wager on. There are no odds for esports betting or anything similar at the moment. But that could change in the future if people are not betting on other niche sports.
