The day has come for all eligible bettors in the Nutmeg State to give FanDuel Sportsbook Connecticut promos a try. The app is now live in CT, offering legal online sports betting to everyone who meets the state’s qualifications.
Bettors in most of the state can now place wagers on the app after registering and making deposits just in time for the start of the 2021-22 NBA regular season. Doing so comes with some great welcome offers for new CT customers, too.
However, you’ve got to make sure you observe the state’s regulations in order to take advantage of the deals. In this case, the item of most importance pertains to your location when you place your bets.
FanDuel Connecticut ready for launch day
As of 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 19, online sports betting in Connecticut is live for all eligible bettors. In CT, eligibility encapsulates being at least 21 years of age and not participating in any of the state’s or tribal governing bodies’ gambling self-exclusion programs.
FanDuel Sportsbook is among the options for Connecticuters thanks to a deal with the Mohegan Tribe. You’ll also find a retail FanDuel Sportsbook at the Mohegan Sun Casino near Uncasville. That’s been open since late September.
However, it’s no longer necessary to make the trip to place your bets. You can do all of that and more right in the app. If you’ve already wagered with FanDuel in another jurisdiction, getting started couldn’t be easier. Simply sign into the app with your existing credentials and the sportsbook will verify your account for use in CT.
If you’re new to FanDuel, however, you don’t have to sit on the bench anymore. You can “check with the scores table” right on the app and then get into the game.
Get into FanDuel’s starting lineup right now
Whether your device runs on Android or iOS, tap on over to the App Store or Google Play Store and search for FanDuel Sportsbook. Then simply download and install the app. From there, follow the prompts to register a new account.
To complete that process, you’ll need to provide the sportsbook with a few pieces of identifying information. The sportsbook has to verify your eligibility and identity in order to comply with state law. The information includes your:
- Date of birth
- Email address
- Last four digits of your Social Security Number
- Legal name
- Mailing address
- Phone number
At that point, all that’s left is for you to deposit some funds into your account so you can make some bets. Don’t get into a rush here, though. This is when you’re likely to receive the best offers from FanDuel, so look for any emails and/or push notifications.
After the sportsbook verifies your deposit, you’re ready to browse the lines on the NBA season or any other events. It’s important to note your location in CT as you look over those odds, though.
Connecticut’s unique geolocation rules
The two sovereign entities with land within the borders of CT maintain their exclusivity when it comes to all forms of gambling, including online sports betting. Thus, the only sportsbook available for full use on Mohegan Tribe territory is FanDuel.
If you try to place a bet on Mohegan lands with DraftKings Sportsbook or SugarHouse Sportsbook, those apps won’t accept your betting slips. For the same reason, FanDuel Sportsbook Connecticut promos are not available to wager with on Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation lands. They have an exclusive deal with DraftKings.
On non-tribal lands in CT, you’re free to wager with any of the three CT sportsbooks. FanDuel Connecticut is known among those three for its convenient Same Game Parlay feature and daily odds boosts. The start of the NBA season is a fantastic time to try that out if you like, but as always, play responsibly.
