As for Sportech’s threatened lawsuit over being initially left out of the state’s sports-betting picture, the company is now willing to let bygones be bygones.
In addition, Sportech will offer sports betting at 10 of its current OTB locations, including Bobby V’s in Stamford.
“It’s a matter of replacing these three locations with new places that fit the 21st century,” Taylor said, referring to the company’s locations in New Haven and Hartford. “Absolutely we think Bridgeport will be a part of that – we’ve been looking there for some time.”
Should sports betting, online gambling and the like be considered “casino games”? The tribes behind Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun continue to say they should, while Sportech says they should not.
Sportech, which operates the gaming operations at the Stamford sports bar, said its online and mobile sites remain open, and telephone betting will also continue to be available.
But a spokesman for Gov. Ned Lamont said the proposed bill "falls short of what the governor wants for Bridgeport."
Sportech Venues, which has exclusive licensing rights to OTB in Connecticut, has been working for about a year to open a gambling facility at Two Steps Downtown Grille.
