Connecticut Lottery Corp. close to naming vendor for lucrative sports betting

Connecticut’s race to launch sports gambling for the start of the football season is making progress, with the Connecticut Lottery Corp. in final negotiations with a vendor to run the operation.

According to the lottery board minutes of earlier this month, at least four vendors were finalists for the sports-wagering operation, which still hinges on approval from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs, and on completion of state rule-making.

One operator was chosen but has not yet been named publicly because final negotiations are underway.
