Connecticut Online Casinos Launch: What You Need To Know

The long wait is over for bettors in Connecticut, as the state officially launched online casinos today. Anyone 21 and up and physically located in the state have access to two Connecticut online casinos: Mohegan Sun (powered by FanDuel) and DraftKings Casino. Players do not need to be a Connecticut resident to join.

The official availability of Connecticut online casinos comes after a week-long soft launch, where only 750 bettors were allowed on each platform at a time. The apps can now accept an unlimited number of players.

Mohegan Sun Casino CT is available via a standalone casino app as well as integrated with the FanDuel Sportsbook & Casino app. Either way, it’s a shared wallet under the same login.

FanDuel and Mohegan Sun offer a large selection of slots as well as blackjack, roulette, and other table games. The casino will also launch live dealer games in the near future.

Mohegan Sun Casino CT offers risk-free gaming up to $1,000 for the first 24 hours. Terms and conditions apply.

DraftKings Casino App

Foxwoods Resort Casino forged a partnership with DraftKings, one of the largest online gambling operators in the US. But rather than brand it Foxwoods, it’s simply DraftKings Casino, which is available via iOS app, Android app, and web browser. You can also find select casino games in the DraftKings Sportsbook & Casino app.

DraftKings Casino offers a similar selection to Mohegan Sun Connecticut. But you can find some themed table games exclusive to DraftKings Casino, such as “spooky roulette,” a Halloween roulette variation.

The welcome offer from DraftKings Casino Connecticut is $60 when you sign up, plus a deposit match bonus up to $2,025.

Are Connecticut Online Casinos Legit?

Connecticut online casinos are licensed and regulated sites that only offer verified-fair and random games. Every slot and table game utilizes random number generators (RNGs) to reflect the real-life odds of their physical counterparts. This is ensured by the CT Department of Consumer Protection Gaming Division, which audits, tests, and approves each game before it’s offered to players.

For example, the odds to win the black or red outside bet on American roulette is 46.37% at both online and brick-and-mortar casinos. And things get even simpler for slots players. These days, all slots are digital, so you’re playing the exact same games online that you would on a casino floor.

Should You Claim Connecticut Online Casino Bonuses?

Yes, but be sure to read all terms and conditions first. All online casino bonuses come with time limits and restrictions on qualifying games. It’s also crucial to know about the playthrough requirement, which is the number of times you need to bet the bonus and deposit amount before you can withdraw.

But there’s only one way to guarantee success at an online casino: Responsible Gaming. Whether you’re playing online or in a brick-and-mortar casino, all casino games favor the house over the player. That means playing only with money that player can afford to lose and setting strict time limits.
