TIVERTON, R.I. (AP) — Workers are preparing to open the new Twin River-Tiverton casino to the public.
The 85,000 square foot casino and 84-room, three-story hotel will open on Saturday Sept. 1.
Workers are putting the final coats of painting on the walls, stocking the restaurants and getting other things ready for the grand opening.
Joanna Kripp is senior project manager for the general contractor, Gilbane Building Co.
She says seeing everything come together is exciting.
The casino will have 1,000 slot machines and 32 table games.
For the first year, the casino will be open around the clock.
After that, there will be a review to determine whether those hours should be permanent.
It's replacing the Newport Grand slots parlor, which is closing on Tuesday.
