The Connecticut Lottery Corporation has received 15 responses to its request for sports betting qualifications.
US.- The Connecticut Lottery Corporation (CLC) has received 15 responses from sports betting suppliers after opening a request for qualifications (RFQ) on April 12.
The CLC is looking for “qualified and experienced sports betting solution providers” which to partner for its online and retail sports wagering service.
Finalists will be chosen for the submission of formal business plans under a tentative timeline.
The CLC hopes to operate online and retail sports betting wagering in the state through the use of providers and different agents after reaching an agreement with two Indian tribes pending the approval of sports betting legislation in the state.
The retail channel is expected to operate a maximum of 15 sale points in the state, including at least one in Bridgeport and Hartford.
Rob Simmelkjaer, chairman of the Connecticut Lottery Corporation, said: “We are pleased to see significant interest from companies who would like to partner with the CLC to bring our online and retail sports betting offering to market.
“Our staff and board will now begin a process of carefully reviewing the qualifications of the submitting parties as we work towards choosing the right partner in this important initiative for our state.”
Due to the confidential nature of the RFQ process, and the need for full legislation from the Connecticut General Assembly, the CLC has released no further information about the responses.
