Online gambling in CT brings uptick in revenue, problem betting

Connecticut legalized online and in-person sports betting and online casino games last October. The state has received more than $45 million in revenue since then. Online casino gaming has brought more monthly payments than online sports wagers. However, the state's revenue from retail sports bets was $193,000 in September. The number of problem gamblers in Connecticut has increased since the legalization. Calls to the problem-gambling hotline have increased 134 percent since. It's because of the ease of betting being at your fingertips. Health experts predict it has led to an increase in gambling addictions.

CT’s two casinos generate $175M million in online and sports gambling revenue

CT's two casinos generate $175M in online and sports gambling revenue. Foxwoods Resort and Mohegan Sun casinos have expanded gambling since expanded gaming was established in Connecticut last year. The two forms of gambling represent a 31% premium to slot revenue of nearly $559M. The state has a stake in casino revenue, claiming more than $30M from October through May for online gambling, sports betting and retail sports bets run by the Lottery. David Sacco, an instructor in finance and economics, says the threat of recession could have a greater impact on casinos than inflation.

Magnitude of increase in calls to problem gambling 'helpline' took many by surprise

There has been a huge increase in the number of calls to the Connecticut Council on Problem Gambling's helpline. The council's executive director, Diana Goode, made news last month when she described the increase. She told the legislature's Public Safety and Security Committee that the helppline calls had quadrupled. From October through January, calls were up 122% over the same period a year ago. Gooder worries that problem gamblers have the highest suicide rate. They lose all their money in a weekend. Some Monday mornings, people had "lost everything" betting on sports the previous weekend, so the line could be busy the day after Super Bowl.

CT tracks online gambling closely

Connecticut's problem-gambling hotline is busiest on Mondays. The hotline's operator, the Connecticut Council on Problem Gambling, took two calls on the same Monday last month. In less than three months of online gambling, Connecticut gamblers have wagered $2.6 billion. The state collected its cut of nearly $10 million. It is funded by voluntary contributions from the two tribal casinos, CT Lottery and the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. They bet $325 million on sports and $ 2.3 billion on digital casino games since the soft launch in early October through Dec. 31.

With an explosion of sports betting and online gambling, Connecticut braces for a potential increase in problem gambling

Connecticut legalized online sports betting and casino gambling last week. The state's mental health agency warns that gambling addiction is a growing problem. Problem gamblers are particularly at risk on college campuses. The law is aimed at apportioning the millions of dollars in revenue from expanded gambling and changing the compacts governing casino betting in Connecticut. It is legal for those 21 and older. For those under 21, it is not. There are concerns about financial difficulties, troubled relationships, poor work performance, an increase in money-related crime and mental illness related symptoms.
