Full launch of online sports betting in Connecticut starts today
The full launch of online sports wagering and casino gaming in Connecticut kicks off today.
After limiting action to just a few thousand players statewide for the past seven days, Gov. Ned Lamont says full access is now available.
Online sports betting is offered by both Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casinos as well as the CT Lottery.
More than 130 games have been approved by the Department of Consumer Protection for both the FanDuel and DraftKings apps.
The Connecticut Lottery has still not announced a date for the start of in-person sports betting at multiple simulcasting facilities in the state.
Gov. Lamont says the move is an exciting moment for Connecticut and our tribal partners.
You must be 21 or older to place a bet, and Connecticut residents can't bet on local college athletics, unless the team is playing in an intercollegiate tournament.
