A bipartisan group of legislators from Connecticut’s southeastern delegation have submitted a bill that would establish online and in-person sports betting in the state.Under the proposed law, sports betting would be operated by the state’s casinos, while the CT Lottery would operate online Keno.Lawmakers are expected to address sports betting early on in the upcoming legislative session, which begins Wednesday.,Osten’s district includes Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods, the two casinos that will likely host a large portion of sports betting in Connecticut.Sponsors of the sports betting bill include Sens. Osten, Steve Cassano, Heather Somers, Paul Formica, Sen.-elect Norm Needleman and eight state representatives (five Democrats and three Republicans).,Per a release, the bill would include age and location verification that would block access to anyone under age 21 or outside state lines.Even as states across the country have scrambled to legalize sports betting over the past eight months, lawmakers have been hesitant to embrace mobile gambling.,Only Nevada currently allows bets to be placed through phone apps, though other states have promised to look into mobile betting in the future.In addition to Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods, other potential sports betting operators in Connecticut include off-track betting sites and the CT Lottery.CT Lottery spokesperson Tara Chozet said in a statement that while the bill submitted Monday would chiefly benefit Connecticut’s casinos, lawmakers should consider other stakeholders as well.,“The CT Lottery would optimize the returns to Connecticut, and we should be included in the conversations alongside other potential operators as this discussion evolves," Chozet said.Despite some measure of bipartisan support in the legislature, sports betting has several key hurdles to clear before it becomes legal in Connecticut.
