Sports betting has been legalized by the U.S. Supreme Court. Connecticut is considering allowing the game within the state's border. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is meeting with the state's Native American tribes to determine if a compromise can be made over revenue sharing and control over sports betting.
The Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan Indians claim exclusive rights to the game. The tribes are the owners of the Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casino resorts.
A special legislative session will be scheduled to discuss the issue.
The governor is interested in forming a new gaming compact with the tribes. He believes that in doing so, it would be beneficial for both the state and the tribes. A meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday between Gov. Malloy and tribal leaders.
Legislation was written after Keno was legalized in the state. A new agreement was made over the revenue sharing between the state and two tribal owned casinos located in the eastern part of the state.
Exclusive gaming rights to slot machines have been given to both the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan Indian tribes. 25% of the revenue made from those games are paid to the state. This equals close to $250 million a year in payments.
