A consultant has advised the Rhode Island Lottery to hire 30 to 35 more staffers to operate and regulate Rhode Island's first full casino when table games come to Twin River this summer.
The hirings will cost $1.2 million in salaries and benefits this year and about $4 million in the next budget year, The Providence Journal reported.
The jobs would include a casino operations and compliance manager paid $97,162 a year, an $82,403-a-year lawyer and a security manager paid $79,563.
That does not include six to eight detectives state police plan to assign to a new casino unit.
