DraftKings, FanDuel Debut Live Dealer For Online Casinos

The two federally recognized tribes in Connecticut that run casinos reached a deal with Democratic Governor Ned Lamont last year to expand their gaming operations online.

Lamont, the Mohegan Tribe, and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation all agreed to change the compacts for their Class III gaming. That would add online casino sites and in-person and mobile sports betting to the types of gambling allowed by the tribes. Since the original compacts were made in the early 1990s, the tribes have been able to run slot machines and table games at their Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casino resorts for almost 30 years.

The iGaming and sports betting expansion also ended the tribes’ earlier plans to build a casino in East Windsor together to compete with MGM Springfield in nearby Massachusetts.

The 2021 Class III compacts let Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods offer interactive slot machines, automated table games, and sportsbooks to their customers online. But the amendment also lets the tribes help run live dealer games over the internet.

Evolution Gaming, which is the leader in the world when it comes to giving iGaming operators live dealer products, then set up shop in Connecticut. Evolution was hired to handle the live dealer games at both Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods.

Mohegan FanDuel runs Sun’s iGaming site, while DraftKings and Foxwoods have teamed up to compete with each other. Each platform will get live dealer services from the Fairfield, Connecticut, studio of Evolution.

“With the addition of Evolution, we continue to offer a modern, technologically advanced gaming experience that gives eligible residents a better experience and keeps us in competition with our neighboring states,” said Lamont. “Connecticut has been a leader in the gaming industry for decades, and this expansion makes it possible for those who want to keep playing to do so in a responsible way.”

Evolution is one of the best places to play live dealer games online, but it hasn’t been without its share of problems. Last year, an anonymous complaint was made to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement that the Swedish iGaming giant was operating in foreign markets that were against the law.

Even though the DGE said it would look into claims that online dealer games run by Evolution were accessed in Sudan, Syria, Iraq, and other countries that are currently on the U.S. list of countries that are not allowed to do business with the U.S., the gaming regulator has not yet found any wrongdoing by Evolution.

Jobs in The iGaming Industry

Brick-and-mortar casinos don’t make nearly as much money from online gaming as they do from playing in person. Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods share the net money they make from online gambling with third-party operators. They also don’t get any of the money that gamblers who go to their casinos in person bring in through food and drinks, hotel stays, shopping, and entertainment.

Even though internet casinos don’t hire nearly as many people as traditional ones, Connecticut’s iGaming live dealer allowance has led to a few new jobs. Evolution says that it has hired 140 people in Connecticut and plans to hire 260 more in the next few months.
