CT legislators submit betting and igaming bill

| By Daniel O'Boyle
A group of Connecticut legislators have put forward a proposal to legalise betting and igaming in the state, following Governor Ned Lamont’s support for legalisation.

The bill – Senate Bill 146 or “An Act Authorizing Sports Wagering, Internet Gaming, Internet Lottery And Internet Keno” – was sponsored by 17 legislators across both major parties and both houses of the legislature.

It has been referred to the legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Safety and Security.

Senate Bill 146 would allow the two Native American tribes that currently operate casinos in the state – the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe and the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut – to offer sports betting at their venues and online, as well as permitting the state lottery to offer online ticket sales and keno.
