| Rhode Island goes to great lengths to protect its gambling and seeks to always stay one step ahead of its neighboring New England states in its gaming options. Consequently, it pans out that a tiny state sandwiched in between legal gambling behemoths like Connecticut and Massachusetts is one of the most liberal and progressive gambling states in the nation. Legal betting options available in Rhode Island consists of land-based sports betting, casino gambling, online horse racing betting, Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS), the Rhode Island state lottery and charitable gaming. Rhode Island recently doubled down in its legal sports betting options and opened its second legal sportsbook. Democratic Senate President Dominick Ruggerio is currently working on a bill to allow people to make mobile, online sports bets anywhere within Rhode Island state lines.
