The new Twin River-Tiverton Casino has been given the go-ahead to be open 24-hours a day. The Town Council in Tiverton voted in favor of that on Thursday Night. It had been proposed that when the casino opens on September 1st, that it would close at 1 a.m. on weeknights, and at two-o'clock in the morning on weekends. According to, Twin Rivers will transfer the license from Newport Grand the Tiverton casino when it opens. But that license is not for 24-hour operation. The Thursday vote will allow that to be changed.

The new casino and hotel is located very close to the Tiverton/Fall River line on William S. Canning Boulevard. The casino will have 1,000 slots, 65 gaming tables along with a restaurant, night club and food court. The 85-room hotel will be located to next to the casino. There will also be a parking garage.
