A new study released by the UMass Center for Policy Analysis reveals that local gamblers seem to be sticking closer to home with visits to Rhode Island's Twin Rivers and Newport Grand. The survey also reveals that Conneticut's resort casinos once again posted double digit declines in slots revenues but concerts and other attractions helped Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun attract many Bay State gamblers.

Twin Rivers is the favorite alternative for convenience gamblers with about 90 per cent of visitors to the 2 Rhode Island slot parlors travel less than an hour to gamble.
