Connecticut Casino Specs and History

very BRIEF Connecticut Gambling History

Mohegan Sun Hotel

Foxwoods Grand Pequot Hotel

According to GamblingOnline.com, Connecticut does not have a long history of gambling. This was a conservative State right from the get-go. In fact, without the tribal land developments there would be very little gambling at all in this State. As a result, “The introduction of a State lottery was in 1983. Besides that only limited Pari-Mutuel betting on horses and dogs were available. Incidentally, charity gambling included Duck and Frog racing in addition to the usual bingo and raffles.” Due to tribal sovereignty, Foxwoods started with a bingo-hall in 1986.

Current Legal Types Of Gambling

Casino Games: Two of the largest casinos in the country reside in CT.  Furthermore. both are located only ten minutes away from each other. They offer everything Las Vegas resorts offer on the Strip, only with better odds on most games.

Live Poker: Both casinos have poker rooms that are some of the largest in the country.

Sports Betting: On-track and simulcast venues are legal. However, legal Sports-Betting does not look to be offered anytime soon. The tribes and the state have a compact that requires 25% of all slot revenue to be paid to the state. Conversely, the agreement does not include table games.  In return, they have control of gaming activities outside the lottery. Unfortunately, this complicates the advent of legal sports-betting for some time to come.

Lottery Betting: Yes, there is a State lottery and residents have access to national games like the Powerball.
