Connecticut to Debate Sportsbetting in State

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Politicians within the state of Connecticut have introduced different bills that would legalize and regulate sportsbetting within the state.

The main bill being touted is House Bill 5168, which was introduced by Rep. Joseph Gresko. The bill would authorize tribal gaming operators to offer the activity while also giving outside corporations the chance to apply for licenses as well. This will be dependent on the approval of tribes, who have to give the go-ahead on expansion.

If legalized, the bill would sanction online and mobile sportsbetting, with physical wagers confined to tribal casinos.

We'll be updating readers as we learn more about the bill's advancement.
