Sports betting is slated to begin in Connecticut on October 7, state officials confirmed Thursday.
The U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs announced to the governor last week that the revision of the gambling contracts between the state, the Mashantucket Pequot tribe and the Mohegan tribe was finally approved last week, paving the way for the state consumer protection department to continue with the Licensing and the certification process. The General Assembly had already canceled Regulations as proposed by DCP and the state.
The state has also already approved sports betting and online gaming through the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, Mohegan Tribe, and the Connecticut Lottery. Officials from DCP and the governor’s office confirmed Thursday that they have set a date for October 7th to begin the offerings.
The Mashantucket Pequot Tribe are building a permanent sports betting retail store at Foxwoods Resort Casino, which will open in October, and they have plans for a temporary retail facility. You have worked with Draft Kings to provide offers.
Mike Hydeck speaks with Mohegan Tribal Council Chairman James Gessner about the expected launch of sports betting and online gaming in Connecticut next month.
People interested in sports betting and online gambling can download the DraftKings Foxwoods app to play the same games you would play at the casino.
The Mohegan Tribal Nation selected FanDuel to run their sports betting, and the Connecticut Lottery awarded Sportstech a contract to operate 10 of the 15 retail locations in the state.
