Rhode Island Casinos

Rhode Island has two pari-mutuel facilities which both feature video lottery terminals (VLTâ€™s). These machines are the same as regular video gaming devices but are called lottery terminals because they are regulated by the stateâ€™s lottery commission which receives a share of each machineâ€™s revenue. The machines accept cash but donâ€™t pay out in cash; instead, they print out a receipt which must be taken to a cashier.
All VLTâ€™s are programmed to play at least six different games: blackjack, keno, slots and three versions of poker (jacks or better, joker poker and deuces wild).
