The launch of Connecticut's statewide online and retail sports betting, which was originally expected Thursday, has been delayed, the Department of Consumer Protection confirmed Wednesday.
The rollout was planned for Thursday, October 7, but state officials said Wednesday that they had not finalized all the details.
"We are working with the licensees to ensure their platforms are certified and in compliance with the regulations prior to launch. As such, no date has been set but we do not anticipate it to be a lengthy delay," Kaitlyn Krasselt, a spokesperson for the Department of Consumer Protection, said in an email.
