FanDuel Sportsbook launches at Mohegan Sun

30 September 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Today, Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment and FanDuel Group launched a retail sports betting experience for residents and visitors to the state of Connecticut. To celebrate the launch of sports betting in Connecticut, a temporary Mohegan Sun FanDuel Sportsbook retail location at Bow & Arrow Sports Bar opened to the public at 9:30am ET with a ribbon cutting ceremony that featured Connecticut Governor, Ned Lamont, who also placed a ceremonial first bet. Lamont placed the first legal sports bet in Connecticut at the Mohegan Sun FanDuel Sportsbook, which was $50.00 on the Connecticut Sun to win by more than 7.5 points tonight vs. the Chicago Sky.

NFL legends, Wayne Chrebet and Darius Butler, were also on hand to celebrate the launch of sports betting at Mohegan Sun. Chrebet placed a $20.00 wager on the New York Jets moneyline for their game this weekend against the Tennessee Titans, and Butler placed a $20.00 wager on the New England Patriots moneyline, hoping they notch a win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night.

Just in time for Week 4 of the NFL season, the temporary Mohegan Sun FanDuel Sportsbook is conveniently located near the Autumn entrance at Mohegan Sun and features four live betting windows and nearly 50 self-service betting terminals. The companies anticipate opening the permanent Mohegan Sun FanDuel Sportsbook this winter in a fully revamped area where the Mohegan Sun Race Book was previously located. This signature sportsbook, which will be 11,000 square feet, featuring a 140 foot high-resolution video wall, as well as, a full bar and dining menu, has the potential to be one of the largest FanDuel Sportsbooks in the United States. A Race Book section will still be featured within the new venue as well.

"To now be able to offer sports betting for Mohegan Sun guests is quite a thrill and a milestone that was a long time in the making," said Jeff Hamilton, President and General Manager of Mohegan Sun. "This day wouldn't have been possible without the dedication and tireless work from our parent company, MGE, my incredible team at Mohegan Sun, leadership with the Mohegan Tribe, Governor Lamont and the State of Connecticut, and our partners at FanDuel Group. This gaming expansion will bring jobs, excitement and other positive economic impacts to Mohegan Sun and across Connecticut, and we can't wait to hit the ground running."

Sports bettors and guests visiting Mohegan Sun will be able to enjoy a FanDuel Sportsbook retail experience that fans in other states have grown to love, featuring an incredible game-day atmosphere with wagering options available across a variety of sporting events. FanDuel will provide its proprietary risk and trading technology that leverages the IGT PlaySports platform to offer bets on all major U.S. sports, including professional football, basketball, baseball, tennis, MMA, boxing, soccer, golf, motorsports and more.

After launching today in Connecticut, MGE and FanDuel will collaborate on the online casino experience under the Mohegan Sun brand, with more details on an official online launch date to be provided soon.
