Online sports betting safeguards in place to limit time, money spent

Connecticut

Conn. (WTNH) — Before you place your bets, know there are safeguards available.

“They can’t try to induce you to keep playing. They need to respect that decision and not suddenly try to pull you back in,” said Commissioner for the DPC Michelle Seagull.
