Connecticut is all set to offer legal sports betting, becoming the latest state to join the sports betting race.
Gov. Danell Malloy signed a bill this week- H 6948 this week that features the sports betting provision. The bill was passed in June by the state legislature. The bill included the authorization of a new casino in the state as a part of larger gaming package. The sports betting provision would increase the number off track betting sites for horse racing.
Connecticut is counting on SCOTUS to remove the federal law; PASPA that banned the sports betting outside of Nevada in New Jersey case. The state has taken initiation joining New Jersey and Mississippi as states prepare themselves to move forward if New Jersey wins its case. It would be smart of the states to prepare for the new world to welcome legalized sports betting if they want to have a legal wagering. If things go right, Connecticut can become one of the first states to join New Jersey with legal sports.
