Sports betting closer to launch in Connecticut

The amended gaming compact between the Mashantucket Pequot Indians and the state has been published in the Federal Register.

US.- Connecticut has taken one of the final steps necessary for the launch of sports betting, with the publication of the second amended gaming compact between the state and the Mashantucket Pequot Indians in the Federal Register.

With both compacts officially published, the Department of Consumer Protection has confirmed that the sports betting market is scheduled to launch on October 7.

In August, emergency sports betting regulations were approved in the state. Some days later, the US Department of Interior approved the proposed revisions to gaming compacts.

Connecticut will collect 18 per cent on online casino gambling, which will increase to 20 per cent after five years. It will collect 13.75 per cent on sports betting and fantasy sports.
