Rush Street Interactive, Sportech and the Connecticut Lottery Corporation have joined forces to offer sports betting into numerous retail sportsbooks in Connecticut, US.
As a result of the deal, sports betting yesterday became available at the first of 15 PlaySugarHouse retail sportsbooks in the state. Players can now place bets at Sports Haven in New Haven, and in coming days the retail sportsbooks at Bobby V’s Restaurant & Sports Bar locations in Stamford and Windsor Locks, will open for bets.
“This has been a long time coming for Connecticut players, and we’re honoured to be the only state-wide retail operator,” said Greg Smith, president and CEO, Connecticut Lottery Corporation. “Together with our partners Rush Street Interactive and Sportech venues, we can offer bettors world-class, in-person sportsbooks at accessible locations throughout the state and mobile sports betting under the PlaySugarHouse brand.”
PlaySugarHouse is a brand of Rush Street Interactive. The new PlaySugarHouse sportsbooks in New Haven, Stamford and Windsor Locks offer a full suite of entertainment options, including wall-to-wall TV monitors, odds boards, food and beverage menus, and now the opportunity for fans to wager on their favourite sports, leagues and players. Eligible bettors – aged 21 and over – will be able to place a wide array of bets on various professional and collegiate sports, including parlays, prop bets and in-game bets, through self-service kiosks as well as staffed teller stations.
The PlaySugarHouse retail sportsbooks will expand to seven additional Sportech locations in Hartford, Manchester, Waterbury, Torrington, New Britain, Milford, and Norwalk throughout the coming weeks. The Connecticut Lottery and RSI are authorised to operate up to 15 PlaySugarHouse retail sports wagering locations.
