Words ending in -ino, -ina, -ine are obviously of foreign origin.
However, there may be English ones blooming in their midst.
Hunt them down - oh no, that sounds outright blood-thirsty. So...

For fun, Adults and CEhildren, please go afield and gather them.

Examples: PAL-omino .. BALE-rina .. in-TERN-ecine

I have found the following words, where the general rule should be inclined to the long 'i', namely: carabine, columbine, byzantine, gelatine, legatine, concubine, muscadine, incarnadine, amygdaline, crystalline, vituline, asinine, saturnine, saccharine, adulterine, argentine, turpentine, vespertine, porcupine, metalline.

CAR-abine, LEG-atine, con-CUB-ine, CRY-s-TALL-ine a-SIN-ine, sa-TURN-ine, ar-GENT-ine, tur-PEN/T-ine, ves-PERT-ine,
por-CUP-ine, ME-TALL-ine fulfill the requirements of the game. Alas, a non-consequential misunderstanding resulted
in lining them up in one batch, instead of introducing them one at a time (like the color-picture guys do).

We are all sorry for that.

For what it's worth....

The following words I would pronounce as ending with the /ein/ sound that you find in "dine" or "line" or "tine" or "Rhine" or "bine":
--muscadine, columbine, incarnadine (in most places, e.g., "Macbeth" Act 2 scene 2), asinine, byzantine (very complicated or involved), crystalline (sometimes), saturnine, concubine, argentine (sometimes, especially in BrE, used for "having to do with Argentina), turpentine, vespertine, porcupine. There is a type of grape and a city in Iowa called Muscatine; both end with the /-tine/ sound.

The following words I would pronounce as ending in an /een/ sound as in "teen", "lean", "bean": incarnadine (in some places), byzantine (for the name of the Eastern Roman Empire), amygdaline, vituline, legatine, argentine (having to do with Argentina in AmE), metalline, adulterine. A "carabine is the French word for a sort of firearm usually called a "carbine" in English; both end with /-een/, but "carbine" often ends /-bean/ in AmE.

The following words I would pronounce as ending in some other sound: crystalline /KRYS-tal-in/ (in most places), saccharine /SAK-er-in/ (for both the sweetener and the adjective), gelatine /JEL-a-tin/ (and often spelled "gelatin").

Others may pronounce these words differently.
