Bally's, Maverick Gaming Launch Poker Room At Twin River Rhode Island Casino

Bally's Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort in Lincoln, Rhode Island, announced its strategic partnership with Maverick Gaming to launch a new poker room named Bally's Maverick Poker Room.

Bally's Maverick Poker Room is slated to host daily tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $50 to $450

According to the official press release, Bally's will continue to operate and manage the poker room which consists of approximately 23 tables, all located on the smoke-free second floor of the casino.

In fact, this is part of Bally's $100 million revamp of its Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort. Of course, financial details of the poker room project remain undisclosed.

Tony Rohrer, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Bally’s Twin River, announced that the Bally's Maverick Poker Room will host daily tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $50 to $450 and offer a wide variety of games, including No Limit Hold'Em.

“Our goal is to elevate the gaming experience of our poker room by tapping into the knowledge and experience of Maverick Gaming to attract world-renowned poker players and position the Bally's Maverick Poker Room as the premier poker destination in the region,” Rohrer said.

“We intend to increase revenue to the state from our enhanced offering and create new employment opportunities as we build a more robust poker product.”

Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort underwent renovations in 2023

In 2023, Bally's Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort added an Asian Food Hall, Korean-style spa, a gaming addition, and new no-smoking areas.

Furthermore, a main goal of the casino is to hold poker tournaments seven days a week.

“Our long-term plan is to eventually, with proper regulatory approval, hold tournaments seven days a week, with varying buy-ins to accommodate all types of recreational and professional players,” said Eric Persson, CEO of Maverick Gaming.

“Additionally, we are excited to bring our poker experience to a major brand casino such as Bally's Twin River which is an ideal setting for our twice annual circuit event which likely will attract more than 3,000 players,”
