Online Gambling and Sports Betting Approved in Connecticut

With the approval from The Bureau of Indian Affairs, online gambling and sports betting is going to start in Connecticut as early as October. Here is a statement from the Governor’s office: “Governor Ned Lamont, Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation Chairman Rodney Butler, and Mohegan Tribal Council Chairman James Gessner Jr. today announced that they have received word from the Bureau of Indian Affairs at the U.S. Department of the Interior that the proposed revisions to the gaming compacts between the State of Connecticut and the tribes that were submitted to the federal agency for consideration earlier this summer have been granted final approval. Federal approval of the revisions brings the tribes, along with the Connecticut Lottery Corporation, one step closer to implementing sports wagering and online gaming under a new law Governor Lamont signed in May. Late last month, the Connecticut General Assembly’s Regulation Review Committee approved the regulations for sports wagering and online gaming as proposed by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection. The department will now continue the licensing process and the review necessary to certify the gaming platforms. It is anticipated that sports wagering and online gaming will be available for Connecticut residents in October.” Read full story here:
