Bally’s virtual casino launch in Rhode Island

Launching a virtual casino in Rhode Island marks a significant step for Bally’s Corporation post-state approval of internet gambling eight months ago.

Customers in Rhode Island who visit Bally’s will hereafter be able to take use of an extensive selection of table games and slot machines via the site or an iOS application on their tablet or smartphone. Initially, anybody over twenty-one with a Bally’s web or smartphone account could access over 170 slot games.

The virtual gaming platform made its public premiere after four days of technical testing. Stakelogic, a major provider of real-time dealer and table gaming software, as well as production technology, is helping the debut.

Industry competition and Rhode Island laws

Senator Dominick Ruggerio expressed his enthusiasm about the state’s involvement in the digital betting business, claiming it will maintain the island’s relevance in the market.

Rhode Island is the seventh US state to permit online gambling as of the 22nd of June of last year. Bally’s physical gambling business monopoly was extended to encompass internet wagering through a Senate Bill that Governor Dan McKee approved the law.

Digital wagering in the state will function as a monopoly, notwithstanding the industry’s resilient nature. Twin Rivers and Tiverton gambling establishments owned by Bally’s are the two physical betting establishments in the area. Bally’s and its IGT gaming provider received a no-bid agreement of 20 years to operate both properties from lawmakers in 2021.

The enactment of this legislation expands Bally’s monopoly to include online gambling, leaving Gamesys as the only provider in the state. A few of the brands that Gamesys utilizes in its commercial dealings are Tropicana Casino, Virgin Casino and Rainbow Riches Casino.

According to the law, internet slot revenue is subject to a fifty percent tax, with the leftover split between Bally’s and IGT. Table games will have a reduced tax rate of eighteen percent.
