Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment and FanDuel have announced an agreement to bring the online sports betting and casino site to CT. 

Connecticut is ready to be the next state to legalize online casinos in America. The state Senate passed legislation back in May, and now providers are ramping up activity building partnerships and securing licenses. 

Per the legislation, all iGaming providers must be partnered with one of the state’s two tribal operators, Mohegan and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe.

It is exciting news to see Mohegan and FanDuel being one of the first to partner in the state as the legislation progresses. 

Ray Pineault, president & chief executive of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, released a statement saying, “We’re excited to work with FanDuel, one of the leading sports-tech entertainment companies in the U.S., to bring the brand’s innovative sports betting and iGaming solutions to Mohegan Sun Connecticut. Our partnership is a priority for Mohegan Digital as we look to grow and enhance our casino, sportsbook, and online operations in Connecticut – and beyond. We’re confident that FanDuel will deliver a best-in-class digital and in-person experience for our loyal guests.” 

Amy Howe, president of FanDuel, added, “Mohegan Sun is an iconic casino and entertainment destination in the Northeast, and we are excited to announce our first tribal gaming partnership with one of the leading tribal operators in the United States. We have some incredible plans for the retail space at Mohegan Sun, with the potential to be the largest FanDuel sportsbook in the United States. When we combine the retail sports betting experience with the opportunity for online sports betting and iGaming, Connecticut is going to be a key state for us as we look towards the start of football season.”

If the legislation passes, online casinos are expected to go live in the state by this fall. 

What can CT players expect from FanDuel?
