Can You Play Online Poker in Connecticut?
Regulation has been discussed but no recent movement.
Current Connecticut Gambling Laws
Like other states, Connecticut allows certain forms of gambling including horse and dog racing, the lottery, jai alai, and some types of charitable and social gambling.
Connecticut also, of course, permits the operation of casinos by its two most prominent Native American tribes, with the Foxwoods Casino run by the Mashantucket Pequots and the Mohegan Sun run by the Mohegans being among the most well known casinos on the east coast. Indeed, Foxwoods — in truth a complex comprised of six different casinos — was for a long time the largest casino in the country.
As surrounding states continue to build casinos and pass legislation introducing other types of gambling expansion (including online), some Connecticut lawmakers and interested parties have tried in recent years to expand gambling in the state with bills that would allow other entities than the two tribes to build casinos, but those efforts have been unsuccessful.
Such efforts continue, however, with the proposed legislation also including language that would permit online gambling and/or sports betting as well. Right now, though, Connecticut residents lack any online gambling options other than the "social casino" games offered by Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun.
Industry observers see lawmakers more likely to pass sports betting legislation in the near future than to entertain online gambling.
