    Sports Betting to Begin at Second Casino in Rhode Island

    Sports betting is coming to a second Rhode Island casino.

    Twin River Casino announced Friday that sports betting will launch at its Tiverton location on Monday.

    Twin River began offering sports betting at its Lincoln location this week. It was the first New England casino to accept bets on professional sports.

    Rhode Island moved quickly to legalize sports betting after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal law this year that made most sports gambling illegal.

    Tiverton is close to the state line with Massachusetts.
