What Sports Betting Sites Can I Bet On In Connecticut Today?

Written By Derek Helling on October 19, 2021

After months of preparation, the day is finally upon us. Connecticut sports betting sites and CT mobile sports betting apps will go live to the general public on Tuesday, Oct. 19. CT residents and visitors now have their choice of three separate CT online sportsbooks.

As bettors evaluate which apps to try, it’s impossible to disregard how few choices Connecticutters have in regard to bettors in other markets. Still, it’s good to know which sportsbooks rate the highest in terms of user experience, competitive odds, variety of markets, volume of events, and quality of promotions.

CT bettors will decide for themselves which apps they like best. To a certain degree, that’s a matter of taste. At the same time, some of the apps are stronger in some areas than others.

1. FanDuel Sportsbook app

FanDuel Sportsbook made its way into the Nutmeg State via a deal with the Mohegan Tribe, one of the two tribal gaming authorities within the borders of CT. In addition to the online sportsbook, FanDuel will also offer online casino play in CT and is also operating a retail sportsbook at the Mohegan Sun Casino near Uncasville.

If you aren’t at the casino but want to try FanDuel out, the app is where it’s at. Registering for the sportsbook is easy, free, and quick right in the app. The biggest selling points for FanDuel include:

  • An industry-leading Same Game Parlay feature. You can combine bets from a single New England Patriots game, for example, to improve your potential payout. FanDuel also regularly offers promotions around this feature.
  • Top-notch customer service that stands ready to answer any question you might have or assist in any element of sports betting you might want more information on. These personnel won’t give you a heads-up as to what direction the lines might move, but they’re ready to help with just about anything short of that.

FanDuel isn’t the only CT sportsbook with regular promotions, however. In fact, the next operator on this list has really doubled-down on localizing its content in the market it operates and tailoring promos along those lines as well.

2. SugarHouse Sportsbook app

The Connecticut Lottery took bids on the privilege of offering sports betting in CT under its banner. Rush Street Interactive, which owns the SugarHouse Sportsbook brand, won.

The Lottery and RSI went with SugarHouse in CT likely due to the brand’s usage in nearby New Jersey. SugarHouse offers new bettors an 100% match of their first deposit, up to $250. That isn’t all that’s in it for customers, though.

  • Daily House Specials, which are curated odds boosts just for that day’s sporting events
  • Many deposit and withdrawal options, including ACH payments, debit cards, PayPal, and wire transfers

During the WNBA season, you’ll probably see frequent House Specials on the Connecticut Sun. SugarHouse won’t be alone by far in giving bettors rewards and boosting odds on a regular basis, however.

3. DraftKings Sportsbook app

DraftKings Sportsbook also offers daily odds boosts and is now available in CT thanks to hooking up with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. That also brought DraftKings Casino and a retail sportsbook inside Foxwoods Casino to the Nutmeg State as well.

Bettors know DraftKings across its markets for several elements like:

  • One of the widest arrays of alternative lines, futures, and prop bets in the business. It seems the only limits to the way you can bet events on DraftKings are those which regulators impose on them
  • Easy and quick navigation within the app. No matter what you want to do as far as your business with DraftKings goes, you’re just a few taps away at any given time

Barring any future changes, this is the menu of available options for legal online sports betting in CT. While it might not represent the most robust number of options, the few that are available are all quality products.
