Good Restaurants/Nice Atmosphere/HORRIBLE PAYOUTS
I have been going to Twin River for a few years now. The atmosphere is good, the restaurants are good...especially Wicked Good Restaurant, the bands are good, and sometimes they have some pretty cool bands at the Event Center. However, this is a state run Casino. When I first started going there a few years ago, the payouts were okay...pretty average for a slot parlor...win some-lose some. But as the months went by, it was VERY noticeable that something had been done to decrease the payouts. The machines at Twin River have become some of the tightest machines I have ever played. It really is too bad because it can be a fun atmosphere...but the fun goes out the window when the machines so rarely pay out anything. One cannot help but believe that the prospect of new full-scale casinos going up in Massachusetts soon has caused Twin River to tighten up. When those casinos are built, say goodbye to Twin River...unless of course they make it a full-scale casino.
So my recommendation? Go for the food, the bands, and the drinks...but unless you are walking around with a big ole' horseshoe up your butt, STAY AWAY from the slots! If you really want to make a donation to the state, save yourself some time and drop off your donation to the Rhode Island Division of Taxation! :)
