When it comes to gambling online in Rhode Island, it can be done discretely. In other words, individuals and entities that conduct gambling operations in the state will have to make sure that they never promote this activity in public. As a result, it will be necessary for gambling institutions and individuals to offer gambling activities by word of mouth and also using discrete ads online that indicate wagering but don’t clearly state that it is gambling. As a result, gambling operations may work online but anyone participating in gambling will have to make sure that they never use things like billboards, direct mail ads or local flyers to inform the public of gambling activities.
Those who are interested in wagering money for profit in Rhode Island can only legally do so by participating in the state run lottery.

Individuals who purchase lottery tickets will then have to wait for a certain number to be revealed and then hope that they have the exact number on their ticket. Therefore the only way people can wager money for profit in the state of Rhode Island without risking any legal consequences is the traditional lottery.
There are many people who like to gamble because of the thrill as well as the possibility of winning lots of money. However, the state of Rhode Island has very strict regulations regarding such activity and therefore people will be better off refraining from participating in any unregulated money wagering. However, due to the fact that the state constitution doesn’t have any specific laws that prohibit gambling online, it can be done. Those who want to gamble online can do this activity but they will have to make sure that such activity is not heavily promoted in public.
