Connecticut Online Gaming
In December 2012, Winners Connecticut OTB, owned by worldwide sports betting company Sportech, was granted approval from the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection to offer online pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing in the state of Connecticut. The approval fell under Sportech's existing license with the state to provide pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing, greyhound racing and jai alai in Connecticut.
In June 2012, online pari-mutuel horse race betting officially launched at mywinners.com. The site is fully licensed in the state of Connecticut and offers advance deposit wagering to all residents of the state.
In February 2013, Mohegan Sun, one of two licensed tribal casinos in Connecticut, launched the free-to-play online poker site www.mohegansunpoker.com.
In 2014, Foxwoods Resort Casino, which is owned and operated by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, launched a virtual currency site. The site can be turned into a real-money online casino if online gaming is legalized.
Governor Dannel Malloy signed a budget bill in October 2017 containing provisions for the legalization and regulation of daily fantasy sports. However, tribal approval must be obtained before any changes can take place. The bill advises the regulatory body to adopt regulations before 1 July 2018, which it failed to do.
In August 2018, Gov. Malloy abandoned a potential special session to address sports betting legislation after failing to reach consensus with legislative leaders. A special session was necessary since the Connecticut legislative session ended five days after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in May that abolished PASPA.
