The Connecticut Lottery has been trying to get ready to add Keno to their game offerings, and after this week, it looks like that could happen by Summer 2014.
The Connecticut Lottery officials have approved funding this week to add Keno to the roster of Lottery games. The Connecticut Lottery Corporation board of director’s voted on Thursday Sept. 26 to spend up to $5.4 billion over the next two years. This money will be spent to bring Keno to over 600 different Connecticut Lottery locations.
The decision to bring Keno to Connecticut has been in the works for several months. The next step in approval is for the lottery to reach an agreement with the state’s two Native American tribes. Currently these two states have exclusive rights to offer gambling in the state, and without their agreement to Keno, the lottery would not be able to run the game.
The Connecticut Lottery has yet to give an exact date when Keno will be available, but the Connecticut Lottery expects the game to be ready by Summer 2014.
