The Department of Interior has approved proposed revisions to Connecticut’s gaming compacts.
United States.- Connecticut’s online gambling and sports betting market is to open next month after the US Department of Interior approved proposed revisions to gaming compacts.
The DOI approval comes after the Connecticut General Assembly’s Regulation Review Committee last month approved regulations for sports wagering and online gaming as proposed by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection.
Next for the department will be to continue the licensing process and the review necessary to certify the gaming platforms.
Governor Ned Lamont said: “I thank the Bureau of Indian Affairs for approving these revisions, as well as the efforts of our partners with the Mohegan Tribe and Mashantucket Pequot Tribe.”
He added: “Today’s announcement puts Connecticut on the cusp of providing a modern, technologically advanced gaming experience that will be competitive with our neighboring states and positions us for success into the future.”
