ush Street Interactive announced Tuesday the launch of PlaySugarHouse online sportsbook in Connecticut, as the official sportsbook partner of the Connecticut Lottery. 750 customers across the state are now able to register and place bets through its platform.
Once the 750-player limit is reached, per Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) regulations, customers who pre-register at PlaySugarHouse’s website will be added to a waiting list and notified as soon as the full launch is authorized, which is expected to happen on October 19, 2021.
Waitlisted customers will receive an extra free bet once their PlaySugarHouse accounts can be opened, on top of the $250 first deposit match bonus to which all new players are entitled.
The PlaySugarHouse online sportsbook will offer bettors in Connecticut betting options on professional and collegiate leagues, games and players, including spreads, moneylines, props, futures, same game parlays and more, both in desktop and mobile formats. In-person bets will soon be available at one of 15 of its retail sportsbooks across the state, including Bobby V’s locations in Stamford and Windsor Locks; Sports Haven in New Haven; and the Winners locations in Hartford, Manchester, Waterbury, Torrington, New Britain, Milford and Norwalk.
After the original timeline to launch statewide sports betting in Connecticut on October 7 was pushed back due to federal delays, the DCP announced Friday that a seven-day soft launch of online sports betting and gaming will begin on Tuesday, Oct. 12.
In an official press release, Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI, spoke about the launch of PlaySugarHouse’s online sportsbook in Connecticut and said: “We are thrilled to begin the much-anticipated launch of the PlaySugarHouse online sportsbook with the Connecticut Lottery and bring our award-winning product to players in Connecticut. We are confident that with our huge volume of betting content, wide range of deposit and withdrawal methods, real-time cash-out approvals, and best-in-class customer service, Connecticut players will come to prefer PlaySugarHouse when wagering on their favorite sports”.
