Twin River, or Twin Ripoff as it's also called, gives $.61 cents of every dollar to the State of Rhode Island. And if RI has it's way, that take will
rise to $.80 cents of every dollar.

Foxwoods gives .25 or each dollar to the State of CT, I recall.

I hate twin rivers with a pasion. i ws their lat week saw wayne newton. he was great but he even center sucked i hated it.

we were eraly thought we have dinner 2.5 hour waite time to eat at the stake house witch dose not have enough seating. and the best resturant their from what we are tould.

we ended up at the over priced ronzio pizza because i was not going to waite 3 hours and i did not feel like walking to subway lol but even they had no seats.

my date walked down there. the slots will not take anything less than a 5 dollar bill.

its sad realy sad i rather play the one armed bandits and fox woods. at least you fell like your at a casino.

oh and the event center sucked i would not want to be in that place incasse of a fire.

the seating was no more than folding chairs on a flat hall floor.

the stage was high enough so you could see it though.

and they had 8*10 sheets of paper. on the floor for seating i was waitng for someone to fall on them leaving the place to a lawsuit in fact i hear their are alot of suits right now againet them.
