The best promo codes and deposit bonuses available at CT sportsbooks.
Being one of the most restrictive states in the country might not endear Connecticut to sportsbooks on the outside, but for FanDuel, DraftKings and SugarHouse, the decision to keep things right and tight is fine by them. And sports bettors don’t seem to mind the lack of options, with Connecticut routinely reaching nine figures in monthly handle. Here's a look at the top sports betting bonuses available to Connecticut-based players.
FanDuel regularly changes its welcome bonus, especially during peak sports seasons like the NFL. The latest offer from FanDuel is a "No Sweat First Bet" of $1,000. If your first bet loses, FanDuel will offer you a free bet credit in the equal amount of your first bet up to $1,000. If your first bet wins, you win.
At DraftKings, you will receive a $50 free bet with a minimum deposit of $5. If you don’t have the bankroll to make a more extensive first deposit, this is a humble offer. Still, far from generous considering, DK is a multi-billion dollar industry giant. The more significant offer DraftKings features is a 20% first deposit match up to $1,000. In this case, you must deposit $5,000 to be eligible to receive the maximum possible bonus amount of $1,000. This is not a reasonable offer for the casual bettor.
You usually see either a risk-free bet or a deposit match as a welcome bonus at most sportsbooks. SugarHouse goes with a deposit match up to $250, which is nice as it gives you free money to play with instead of risk-free bets that only award you if your first bet is graded a loser. All SugarHouse bonuses have a 1X wagering requirement.

It will come as no surprise to see a rather extensive list of major professional and amateur sports available to Connecticut bettors; here are the marquee sports on which CT residents can wager:
As is the case with the other legislated states, Connecticut bettors load up on NFL wagers every year. From betting on NFL preseason spreads and totals to filling betting cards with Super Bowl wagers at season's end, the five-month NFL calendar is the most profitable for every CT sportsbook.
On one hand, Connecticut residents and visitors have access to an immense range of college football markets, including moneylines, spreads, totals and in-game options across dozens of matchups each week. But CT natives are not permitted to bet on teams based within state borders.
You have to credit sportsbooks for improving their creativity level when it comes to NBA betting markets. Connecticut residents have more options than ever when it comes to satisfying their hardcourt wagering needs – including newer plays like who will score the first basket, and how.
The ban on wagering on in-state collegiate teams prevents Connecticut bettors from putting money on seven different teams, including the UConn Huskies and the Yale Bulldogs. Fortunately, bettors can still offer action on any other NCAA hoops team, which is particularly meaningful for March Madness.
Football is over. Basketball has just ended. What is a Connecticut bettor to do? Invest in Major League Baseball, that's what. Baseball markets are plentiful across most major sportsbooks, with moneylines, run lines and totals complimented nicely by wagers like individual home-run props.
Connecticut is an underrated hockey hotbed – so it should come as no surprise to see CT's NHL handle as a higher percentage of the total than other legislated states. From preseason futures markets to Stanley Cup in-game options, bettors can satiate their stick and puck fix all year long.
You don't need to be an expert duffer to crush your golf bets. And Connecticut wagerers have plenty of options at their disposal, with the state's three mobile sports betting operators offering an astounding number of markets for the PGA Tour as well as options for the LPGA, European Tour and others.
Whether you dabble in soccer betting or get up early every Saturday and Sunday morning to catch the best European soccer leagues, Connecticut sportsbooks have you covered. Bet on which team will win, who will score and when, and even which team will amass the most corner kicks or yellow cards.
Like most states, Connecticut’s state gaming authority has put safeguards in place to ensure that bettors have a way out of any potential trouble spots.
The Connecticut Council on Problem Gaming is dedicated to reducing gambling related harm and helping those who may be negatively impacted by gambling. Players can also set deposit and bet limits of their choosing through the mobile apps.

Many sportsbooks will offer you a free bet or several free bets as a reward for choosing them ahead of the competition. However, you should not expect a free bet offer to come with no strings attached. You will generally have to deposit your own money to unlock the free bet and then place several bets at a specific minimum set of odds before you can make a withdrawal.
Betting bonuses are awarded to new players to encourage them to sign up or to existing players so they remain loyal. They include match deposit bonuses, reload bonuses, boosted odds bonuses, and much more. They vary from one sportsbook to the next, so you should always shop around for the most appealing free bets and sign up for multiple books to enjoy several free bet offers. Always check the terms and conditions attached to free bets before accepting them.
This refers to the number of bets you must place before you are permitted to make a withdrawal. It applies to sign-up free bet bonuses and reload free bet bonuses. A typical rollover requirement would be 6x, which means you must wager your credit six times (place at least six bets) at a certain minimum price before you can make a withdrawal. The rollover requirement generally applies to the cash you deposit as well as the free bets you receive.
