HARTFORD, Conn. – Online sportsbooks and online casinos have officially gone live in full-scale fashion in Connecticut. Local gamblers can access odds on DraftKings, FanDuel, and PlaySugarHouse.
The Connecticut online gambling market has gone live following a soft launch last week. During that time, only a select few players were able to access the mobile platforms.
Now that mobile betting and iGaming casinos have gone live, there is no limit on who can access these operations.
Connecticut Online Gambling
Foxwoods Resorts, Mohegan Sun, and the Connecticut Lottery Corporation are the operators of these online gambling providers. Foxwoods partnered with DraftKings, Mohegan Sun partnered with FanDuel, and the Connecticut Lottery launched PlaySugarHouse with Rush Street Interactive (RSI).
“This is an exciting moment for our state and our tribal partners,” said Ned Lamont, Connecticut Governor. He said it marked “one of the fastest state implementations of online gaming and sports wagering of any state in the nation.”
FanDuel will have 130 games to offer through the Mohegan Sun and DraftKings with Foxwoods can offer up to 163 online casino games. These include slots, table games, and card games.
PlaySugarHouse will be able to offer online keno and lottery tickets, but these still await government approval by the Department of Consumer Protection.
Online Sportsbooks Live
The online sportsbooks that went live as well will see odds for all major sporting events at each of these active sportsbooks.
There will be live in-game betting options as well as futures betting and options to parlay wagers. Full-scale Las Vegas-style betting is available on mobile apps with the same odds as the physical casinos offer.
Connecticut spent years negotiating with the Mohegan Tribe and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe to launch sports betting in Connecticut so this launch is a major achievement for the state.
“The Mohegan Tribe is thankful to Governor Lamont and the Department of Consumer Protection for their cooperative efforts to reach this point, as together we finally make online gaming and sport wagering a reality in Connecticut,” said James Gessner, chairman of the Mohegan Tribe. “Doing so will allow us to not only offer these new products to state residents, it will in turn help protect Connecticut jobs and generate additional tax revenues to the benefit of state and local municipal budgets, as well as our tribe’s members. We’re excited to take this step, and we look forward to a full launch in the days ahead.”
The online gambling market in Connecticut is now official and with it, a new era has begun.
