Little support to lowering gamble age

17 May 2010

CONNECTICUT -- Things do not look promising for Mashantucket Pequots interest in lowering the legal gambling age and talks have not yet started, according to the Hartford Courant.

In neighbouring New York and other states casinos are permitted to allow 18-year-olds to gamble, but the legal gambling age is 21 in Connecticut, the report stated.

The chairman of the Tribe expressed his interest in seeing change, while the Mashantucket Pequots were more restrained saying only they were "open to dialogue" with the State, in the Hartford Courant report.

Neighbouring states possess a competitive advantage, the report noted.
