Connecticut set for limited launch of online gambling

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Online gambling is coming to Connecticut, on a limited basis. The state on Friday approved a seven-day "soft launch" beginning Tuesday. Sept. 30 marked the first day of the state's long-awaited rollout of legalized sports and internet wagering, when Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods held events to mark the grand opening of temporary sports betting venues. In addition to the two tribal casinos, the state's quasi-public lottery will offer online sports wagering and retail sports betting at 15 locations. The soft launch of online gambling will allow the three operators to open accounts for several hundred people to wager for a seven-day period.
