Moreover, the launch will occur in three sports bars in the US state. They are located in Bradley, Stamford, and New Haven.
That’s just the beginning. They plan on launching it across seven other locations. The time schedule will be within the next two weeks at most. Although the company aims to make it as short as possible.
In August, Sportech inked a deal with the Connecticut Lottery Company. This deal sees bars like Winners OTB and Bobby V’s becoming the main venues for sports betting in the state.
There will be a full range of betting options available to players, including in-game bets. Not quite what you can get at top USA sportsbooks online, but it’s a start.
According to the company’s CEO, Andrew Lindley, it’s a logical step in the development of legal sports betting in Connecticut. The company sees interest in sports betting rising across the country. And, wants to be a part of it in Connecticut.
Sportech has been around for more than three decades and is an exclusive partner for authorities in Connecticut.
Sports betting fans in the state would surely enjoy a bit more competition. Besides, it’s a good start and a milestone to remember. In time, the situation will mirror the one in other US states like New Jersey.
