Self-Exclusion From Sports Betting In CT

Sports betting was first launched in Connecticut via the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos, providing players with access to land-based betting.

By October, online services were live, with bets offered via mobile devices and computers. DraftKings and FanDuel offer services in partnership with the two land-based casinos while PlaySugarHouse has teamed up with the lottery to provide betting options.

All operators are committed to providing a safe and secure gaming environment for sports fans. After establishing the sports betting market, regulators set out to create a self-exclusion program.

The program is offered to players who need to take a break from gaming to avoid a major gambling addiction or overspending.

The process of signing up for the program is simple and can be completed in just a few steps. Check out more details on how to sign up below.
