Sports betting in Connecticut is now live! As of October 19th online sportsbooks are legal, letting bettors take advantage of a whole bunch of online Sportsbook offers.
After being pushed back from the originally planned date of October 7th Connecticut sports betting has opened with some great offers from Sportsbook powerhouses SugarHouse, DraftKings and FanDuel.
As well as professional sports like the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL Connecticut Sports betting has opened up betting on the NCAA college sports outside of Connecticut sports teams.
Since the Supreme court lifted the Sports betting ban back in 2018, traction for Connecticut Sports betting has been slowly moving forward. Gov. Ned Lamont and his predecessor both attempted to reach agreements with the Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes but no agreement could be made. In fact, if it wasn’t for COVID-19, an agreement may still not be in place. As the Casinos in Connecticut, and the local governments fell into a budget deficit both sides became far more willing to talk about the future of Connecticut Sports Betting.
From starting talks during the Covid-19 pandemic, to the launch of Connecticut sports betting on October 19th 2021 was a hugely impressive turnaround time. It was early in 2021 when the two Connecticut gaming tribes, and the Connecticut lottery announce they would be partnering up, making Connecticut the first legal sports betting market in New England.
The agreement was to allow up to 15 retail sportsbook locations throughout Connecticut, so expect this market to become hugely competitive and user friendly.
There are currently three Sportsbooks operating in Connecticut – SugarHouse, FanDuel and DraftKings, but expect many more books to open up in the coming weeks.
DraftKings In Connecticut: DraftKings is another big sportsbook brand here in the US. Like FanDuel, the company began by offering daily fantasy sports but has since branched out into sports betting too. DraftKings is often one of the first sportsbooks to launch whenever a state legalizes them and it will be no different for sports betting in Connecticut. The company has a great website and mobile app and offers a broad range of markets, making it a fan favorite.
FanDuel In Connecticut: FanDuel is one of the biggest sportsbook brands in the country, thanks in part to offering daily fantasy sports to much of the country even before sports betting was legalized in most states.
Connecticut sports betting started some amazing, generous promotions such as;
• FanDuel Promo Code: Risk Free $1000 Bet on ANY Sport
• DraftKings Promo Code: $1000 Deposit Match
Although the market is still growing, Connecticut sports betting has already got access to two of the best Sportsbook apps, from FanDuel and DraftKings. These companies have spent years developing their apps and have created some of the best mobile sports betting experiences on the market.
Connecticut sports bettors can bet on college sports matchups outside of colleges based in CT.
