PlaySugarHouse - Legal website in the U.S.
It's official. Sports betting is now available to the residents of Connecticut. With limited participation from licensees, the state's sports bettors will need to make their selection of online bookmakers based on certain guidelines as designated by law.
For sports bettors not in close proximity to retail casinos owned by the state's Indian nation, the only choice will be PlaySugarHouse.com (formerly SugarHouse Sportsbook). This brand is owned and operated by Rush Street Interactive, an entity that has partnered with the Connecticut Lottery to provide sports betting services. Soon, the Lottery will be opening retail betting sites.
The PlaySugarHouse website and mobile app feature an unconventional format that starts with a home landing page that provides some bonus and administrative information. To get to the sports betting content, bettors will have to navigate their way there. Fortunately, that is easy to do.
The website is available with a PC and standard web browser or via a mobile app that works for Android and iOS (Apple) devices.
PlaySugarHouse offers an extensive list of betting markets from which bettors can choose. The list starts with U.S. betting markets like the NFL, NBA, WNBA, NHL, NASCAR, PGA Golf, and college sports like Men's basketball, Women's basketball, and NCAA FB.
On the international level, SugarHouse offers access to top international soccer leagues from Europe (Premier and Champions Leagues) and South America, Boxing, MMA, motorsports, rugby, cricket, volleyball, cycling, and Aussie Rules Football. They also offer betting access to special World Cup events and the Olympics.
While offering fair betting limits across the board, PlaySugarHouse also offers all of the betting options that American bettors seem to prefer. The list of options includes live in-game wagering, teasers, round robins, proposition bets, futures odds betting, and straight bets, using money lines and point spreads.
Bonuses and Promotions
Currently, PlaySugarHouse is offering about a dozen different bonus offers. The betting promo menu covers common bonus options like profit boosts, losing bet insurance, and a big $1,000,000 sports betting contest. The welcome offer consists of a 100% matching bonus of up to $250 based on the new customer's first cash deposit. The offer is available after the new customer has successfully completed the registration process.
Banking and Customer Service
Connecticut sports bettors will be able to initiate deposits and withdrawals, using MasterCard, PayPal, VISA, and online banking transfers, as well as a few other options. Any questions a bettor might have can be directed to a customer service department that is available via, live chat, phone, and email.
Verdict: While the welcome bonus offer is a bit small by industry standards, PlaySugarHouse has always proven to be a reliable full-service bookmaker.
