Online Sports Betting, iCasino Begins in Connecticut

NBC Universal, Inc.

Online sports wagering and iCasino in Connecticut have fully launched.

After a seven-day soft launch, the full launch went into effect at 6 a.m.

The Connecticut Lottery Corporation, the Mohegan Tribe, and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe can start offering online gambling to adults of legal betting age, the governor's office said.

Adults 21 and older can take part through the approved companies, including Rush Street Interactive, FanDuel and Draft Kings.

“This is an exciting moment for our state and our tribal partners,” Gov. Ned Lamont said. “Connecticut has proven to be a leader when it comes to the gaming economy going back decades, and that legacy will continue with the launch of these new online options for all eligible residents."

When it comes to online gaming, you have to physically be in the state to participate.

Sports betting and online gambling have been in the making for the last 10 years in Connecticut and this is expected to generate more than $70 million in incremental tax revenue for the state.

The state has launched a website to allow people to self-exclude themselves from marketing and any of the new apps that will offer online gaming and sports betting here in Connecticut.

The Dept. of Consumer Protection has a self-exclusion list that people can sign up for if they have a problem with gambling.

“Also our operators are including as part of our regulations and that they’re doing, including an ability for people that want to participate but limit themselves…ways to limit the amount of time or amount of money you spend…give people notifications so you know how long your sessions have lasted. So we want to make sure people can completely exclude themselves if they think that’s the safest option for them," said Conn. Commissioner of the Dept. of Consumer Protection Michelle Seagull.
