Twin River in Rhode Island expanded its video-slots parlor and bought its dog track by assuming $565 million in debt, and now says it will file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection unless it gets relief from creditors this month. Officials with Twin River cited a decline in revenue along with the heavy debt as causes, but noted they will continue to operate the parlor. State Sen. John Tassoni Jr. has suggested allowing full-scale gambling to make the parlor more viable.
