Twin River isn’t gambling on the outcome of November’s referendum.
The Lincoln slot parlor has spent $698,050 so far this year on its Jobs to RI campaign pushing voters to legalize casino gaming in Rhode Island, according to a disclosure filed Tuesday. Newport Grand said separately Tuesday it’s spent $101,338 on the campaign so far, with nearly three months to go before the election.
RIPR’s Ian Donnis reported last month on the referendum’s big stakes.
