Provide Betting Services In Connecticut Will Be Tribal Casinos
Connecticut’s senate has a bill providing for the legalization of sports betting in a casino located on its territory.
Despite the fact that the amendments to the bill are still made, it can be announced that the bill will provide exclusive rights to the implementation of betting activities by the ground tribal casino located in monteville, in particular mohegan sun and foxwoods.
The media reports that online rates on sporting events will also be resolved, but their implementation will be possible exclusively through the casino.
Katie osten, a member of the connecticut senate from the democratic party, noted that the neighboring states – rhode island, new jersey, pennsylvania and delaware – already legalized sports rates.
«Connecticuta needs to keep up with neighboring states, if we want to upgrade the existing gambling industry. Fortunately, we can do it with a relatively simple regulatory solution», – he stated osten.
She added that connecticut was considering the possibility of legalization of betting since the supreme court removed the federal ban on sports rates (in may last year).
«In our state, the infrastructure of tribal casinos has been developed, and we will be able to competently use a new income, having received the support of both parties», – added politician.
Osten predicted revenues to be obtained by connecticid after the legalization of betting, but said that rhode island, where the market was launched in november last year, an income of $ 11.5 million expects an income of $ 11.5 million.
A similar bill was not accepted at the previous session of the state parliament, and legislators and stakeholders were impassed in the issue of whether casino give exceptional rights to providing betting services. Mohegan and mashantucket pequot tribes insisted on monopolies on betting services.
Concern was also expressed about the fact that the tribes, if they are not given a monopoly, will refuse additional payments of a state of about $ 200 million.
Recall that the united states lobbies the construction of the resort casino in danville.
