State law does not allow the lottery to offer an online casino. Sports betting behemoths turned DFS will bring casinos online alongside their sports betting, as Connecticut will become the second state after Michigan to unveil iCasinos and sports betting at the same time.

Welcome aboard, Connecticut, but keep your head on a pivot.
Sports betting is finally paying off for Rose?
It’s been 32 years since Pete Rose was banned from baseball for betting, and he finally has a chance to capitalize. There is a certain irony in the idea that one of the best and most well-known baseball players in history has been kicked out of the game but can now make a living publicly because of the very thing that did it. banish.
Last week it was announced that Rose will place the first bet when the former Jack Casino in Cincinnati reopens under the Hard Rock banner on October 29, and last week it kicked off a six-day-a-week gig hosting “Pete Rose’s Daily Picks”. The Hit King has stated that this is a podcast for “handicapping” and not for the game. If you read between the lines, it seems that Rose is trying to convince herself as much as we are:
“I love sports. I know I can help people who want to bet on sports,” Internal hook quoted Rose as saying. “I know what it looks like, and people will criticize, but it’s not a game. It’s crippling. I am disabled. Remember, this is crippling. That’s all. It is happening everywhere. All I do is put my expertise to work for those who want to bet. ”
While it seems clear that Rose still embraces the game, still believes he’s innocent, and still loves baseball, it’s also clear that aside from causing him emotional pain, Bart Giamatti’s lifetime ban at the Temple of fame does not seem to have had any tangible effect on Rose’s way of life. Considering everything we’ve seen since Rose’s ban – the era of steroids, the cheating, the seemingly continuous stream of player arrests – part of me is like “Good for you, Charlie Hustle!” while the other party wonders if Rose is just being rewarded for an addiction.
