As of 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 19, DraftKings Sportsbook CT promos went online for legal sports betting in the Nutmeg State. Throughout most of the area within the borders of CT, all eligible residents and visitors can now utilize the app’s functions.

Connecticuters are free to familiarize themselves with the wide array of markets on a wealth of sporting events and do so from the convenience of their phones wherever they go. It’s important to note one geolocation restriction that pertains to DraftKings in CT, however.

All bettors new to DraftKings in CT can enjoy the sportsbook’s standard new customer offer and daily odds boosts. Tuesday’s launch is the result of a lot of negotiations and behind-the-scenes work.

DraftKings Connecticut Promos

DraftKings Sportsbook is live in most of CT now thanks to a partnership with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. They are the entity behind Foxwoods Casino and you can find a retail DraftKings book on those grounds.

Due to the new gaming compact between the Mashantucket Pequot and the state, all eligible bettors can now register for DraftKings on its app. According to the compact terms and state law, you must be at least 21 years of age to legally gamble online in CT.

Additionally, if you’ve taken part in the state’s or tribe’s gaming self-exclusion programs, you’re ineligible to bet on sports in CT. Otherwise, if you’re of age, you’re good to go with DraftKings.

If you’ve already used the sportsbook in another jurisdiction, you can just sign right in with your existing credentials. The app will verify your account for use in CT, and you’re good to go. If you’re new to DraftKings, however, sign up is easy and quick to do right in the app.

How to get started with DraftKings

No matter what mobile device you’re on, Android or iOS, the DraftKings app is free and available in either the App Store or Google Play Store. Just search for DraftKings Sportsbook and download then install the app.

After that, simply follow the prompts for registration. You’ll need to provide the sportsbook with some identifying information so it can verify your eligibility and identity in accordance with state law. That information includes your:

  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Last four digits of your Social Security Number
  • Legal name
  • Mailing address
  • Phone number

Once the app has verified you, you’ll be ready to make your first deposit. This is when it’s important to pay attention to any emails and/or push notifications. DraftKings will make some of its best offers to you after registration and some of them could be tied to your first deposit.

While you do not have to be in CT to register, you do have to be within the borders of the state to put your bets down. Additionally, there’s a note that applies to exactly where in the state you are as well.

Geofencing rules for DraftKings customers

In CT, both the Mashantucket Pequot and the Mohegan Tribe maintain their sovereignty over their lands for gambling. That applies to online gaming as much as in-person wagering. For DraftKings app users, that means you can’t make bets on DraftKings while you’re on Mohegan territory.

The Mohegan Tribe has a similar deal with FanDuel Sportsbook. Thus, while you can still browse the lines on DraftKings on Mohegan land if you like, you won’t be able to actually take advantage of Draftkings Sportsbook CT promos until you’re on either non-tribal lands or Mashantucket Pequot territory.

Within those parameters, you’re free to use DraftKings Connecticut to engage with your favorite sporting events in new ways. As always, play responsibly, and have fun.
