For years, East Coast gaming really only consisted of two places: Atlantic City and the tribal casinos in Connecticut. At one point, Foxwoods Resort Casino was the largest casino in the world. It is still one of the biggest casinos you can find, with over 340,000 square feet of gaming space. The wonder of it all is that this is just one of two extremely popular casinos in Connecticut.

The state’s other casino, Mohegan Sun, has plenty of gaming to choose from as well. During the fiscal year 2019/2020, the two casinos generated over $760 million in revenue, a chunk of which goes to the Connecticut general fund.

The two tribal casinos from the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes generate the bulk of gambling revenue, but Connecticut offers other types of gambling as well, including charitable gaming, the lottery, horse racing, online sports betting, and online casino.

The tribes and Gov. Ned Lamont reached new compact agreements that received federal approval in September. Lamont later signed off on legislation to legalize online sportsbooks and online casinos in the state, as well as online poker and iLottery.

Sports betting

Retail sports betting launched in Connecticut in September 2021, with online sportsbooks launching just a few weeks later on Oct. 19, 2021.

Foxwoods is working with DraftKings Sportsbook, Mohegan Sun partnered with FanDuel, and the Connecticut Lottery recently partnered with Rush Street Interactive (under the PlaySugarHouse brand) for a series of retail locations and a betting app.

Casinos

Most everyone in Connecticut is familiar with Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun. These properties debuted in the 1990s and continue to be two of the biggest and most popular casinos on the East Coast.

With new tribal compacts receiving approval, online casino games are also now live in the state.

Those in Connecticut can play online casino games through DraftKings Casino or Mohegan Sun Casino.

CT Lottery

The Connecticut Lottery is one of the oldest lotteries in the country. The lotto offers the major national draw games, Powerball and Mega Millions. There are also state-level draw games like Pick 3, 4, and 5. And, of course, there are dozens of scratch-off games to choose from at CT Lottery retailers across the state. Additionally, there is a lottery app that can help with tracking winning numbers and finding nearby retailers.

Poker

Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun have been major poker spots for decades, particularly for Boston poker players. Foxwoods is still one of the few casinos with regular Stud cash games. Both sites also host major tournaments from the likes of the WPT and WSOP. Soon, they will be able to take the poker action online thanks to the new tribal compact, which allows for it along with online casino games.

Daily Fantasy Sports

Not explicitly legal before, daily fantasy sports was written into state law in 2021, allowing for major operators FanDuel and DraftKings to legally cater to Connecticut players. These games allow players to draft a slate of players for a single day, if not a single game. They compete against a group of players that can range from one to thousands for cash prizes.

Sweepstakes Casinos

In addition to the launch of real-money online casinos and poker sites, there is an alternative that is available to those in Connecticut. Sweepstakes casinos like Chumba, FunzPoints, and LuckyLand allow players to play slot style games and casino-like table games using sweeps currency they can buy. Then, they can use those coins to win cash prizes.
