The Connecticut government and the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan Indian tribes have reached an agreement to regulate gambling in the state. In particular, operators, depending on the period of work, will pay from 18% to 20% of the income from new online casino offers. Tax on sports betting will be 13.75% of bookmakers’ income. The Connecticut State Lottery will have the right to operate 15 existing retail sports betting shops, to operate an online betting application, to open new sports betting shops, to expand iLottery and keno, tickets for which will be allowed to buy online. And two tribes, whose support the state government must enlist in matters of gambling law, are suspending the development of a casino project in East Windsor (Hartford County, Connecticut) for 10 years. The agreement must be approved by the State General Assembly and the US Department of the Interior. However, the governor of Connecticut is already saying that the agreement will give the state additional tens of millions of dollars. Earlier it became known that the authorities of Nebraska are preparing rules for gambling companies. As reported, taxes and fees for betting operators are set by New York state legislators.
