Canadians can play roulette live from Foxwoods via LeoVegas.
Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut, USA is one of the largest and most famous casino destinations in all of North America. Being on the east coast, it doesn’t compete with Las Vegas, and often draws players from as far away as Canada to its gaming floor. Now, those same Canadians, and many more—even players from across the ocean—can play at Foxwoods, without even leaving their home.
Through an interactive gaming contract with Authentic Gaming, the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes of Connecticut—owners of the casino resort—Foxwoods’ European roulette tables are now streaming live on the world wide web. Anyone of adult legal age can access them, from any jurisdiction where online gambling is legal. Thus players in Connecticut and other US states will still have to travel to play in person.

Authentic Gaming supplies its live casino software to a number of major iGaming operators, including Canadian favorite LeoVegas. Players can log into their LeoVegas account, access the live dealer tables, and join Foxwoods European Live Roulette table 24/7/365. This and other live games are available for real money play on any modestly equipped desktop, laptop, smartphone or mobile device.
Members of Canada’s vast iGaming community are always seeking out the highest quality games, from a source they can trust. Foxwoods Connecticut is one such brand, having garnered the trust of players all over North America and beyond for more than 30 years.
It’s a US Casino – Why No US Players?
The United States government no longer prohibits online gambling. However, each state has the right to choose whether internet gaming should or should not be legal. At present, only three US states have authorized online casino gaming.
Delaware and New Jersey launched their internet gambling sites in 2015, and Pennsylvania is still in the process of accepting license applications. Nevada also offers legal online gambling, but only in the form of poker. And aside from a player-sharing contract between Nevada and Delaware, each state restricts access to their own residents (i.e. no other US or international players).
When the topic of legal sports betting, and inevitably online sports betting, arose in Connecticut earlier this year, the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes went to bat. They lobbied hard for an omnibus bill that would legalize and regulate online casinos, poker, sports—the whole kit and kaboodle, as they say.
Connecticut legislators continue to drag their feet on the subject. While sports betting is sure to get the nod, it’s less likely lawmakers will give casino games the nod. Instead of waiting to see what happens, the tribe decided to take matters into their own hands. While they cannot accept players from Connecticut, or any other US state, due to the legal climate, they see no reason why they can’t open their virtual doors to players from other nations where online gambling is legal.
