Mark your digital calendar: The soft launch of online sports betting and casino gaming in Connecticut will begin Tuesday, Oct. 12, at 3 p.m.

The Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes, along with the Connecticut Lottery Corporation, got the green light for the soft launch from the state Department of Consumer Protection on Friday, after it initially was postponed Thursday.

“We appreciate the hard work of our licensees and their teams, as well as the team at DCP, for their diligence in ensuring these platforms are compliant with the regulations approved by the legislature,” DCP Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull said in a news release Friday.
