Bradley Supports Inclusion Of Mashantucket Pequots In Sports Betting Deal With Lamont

Governor Ned Lamont has crafted a deal granting the Mohegan Tribe exclusive rights to sports betting and online wagering with Connecticut Lottery Corp. included in the agreement, cutting out state gaming partners Mashantucket Pequot Nation and Sportech that manages Connecticut’s parimutuel facilities.

Lamont is receiving pushback from Eastern Connecticut state legislators loyal to the operator of Foxwoods while Sportech is threatening legal action under the equal protection clause if the deal is implemented.

State Senator Dennis Bradley, in a letter to Lamont, has joined the chorus of his Eastern Connecticut legislative peers.



  1. Dear Dennis
    It seems as if you are playing right into the hands of the Eastern tribe. Telling the Governor to act quickly but include them.
    A casino is not happening in Bridgeport.
    Grow up and move on

  2. *** Forget a casino in Bpt. & Sportech’s “$” reasons concerning these future plans of sports betting in Ct. for now. *** However, why exactly is Foxwood Casino not part of this sports betting deal along with Mohegan Sun? Lets hope Ct. gets a better deal this time that allows them to come back every 10-yrs. for a review about the money being made & who’s making it, as well as the present economy of the state, etc. ***

  3. Mojo,
    You must remember when you were younger chasing the pretty ladies and they were playing hard to get?
    Well that’s what’s happening here. They are playing hard to get and Lamont got over them. He’s playing now. I’ve got a taker at the table. You want the same terms, welcome. You want a more generous take, take a hike.
    All of a sudden the eastern part of the state is left out and not feeling loved anymore.
    It’s all a game of give and take and sooner or later they will take. You can book a bet on it.
