The Connecticut Lottery Corporation (“CLC”), and its partner Rush Street Interactive, a leading online sports betting and casino company in the United States, executed a soft launch of the PlaySugarHouse online sportsbook in Connecticut on October 12 at 3 p.m. During the soft-launch period, up to 750 customers across the state can register and place bets beginning today at www.PlaySugarHouse.com and experience RSI’s award-winning sports betting platform, on a first-come-first-serve basis. Today and Wednesday, online wagering will be open from 3-11 p.m., and expand to 24 hours by the end of the week-long soft launch, subject to regulatory approval.
Once the 750-player limit is reached, per Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection regulations, customers who pre-register at www.PlaySugarHouse.com will be added to a waiting list and notified as soon as the full launch is authorized. Waitlisted customers will receive an extra $25 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 CLC’s PlaySugarHouse online sportsbook will offer bettors in Connecticut a wide array of betting options on professional and collegiate leagues, games, and players, including spreads, moneylines, props, futures, same game parlays, and more, all delivered through an engaging and easy-to-use website and app. RSI’s mobile sportsbook app was rated #3 out of 35 apps in the United States market this week by independent gaming research firm Eilers & Krejcik.
PlaySugarHouse is the official sportsbook partner of the Connecticut Lottery. In addition to betting from their home computers and mobile devices, Connecticut players will soon be able to place bets in-person at one of 15 accessible PlaySugarHouse retail sportsbooks across the state, including 10 Sportech Venues locations, subject to regulatory approvals: 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.
