Legal wagering options in New York

29 Jan 2019

Things are changing as days go by in the US betting industry, with the latest news being excellent for the US and more specifically, for New York bettors. And that is because the latter will soon have some legal betting options on their hands since the state’s gambling regulators gave the green light to draft new betting rules.

The New York State Gaming Commission approved the regulations regarding draft betting, and those will give the opportunity to four upstate casinos to include retail sportsbooks to their offerings. The regulations are subject to a 60-day public comment period and the launch will take place in the first days of April. All these four upstate casinos have already concluded their own betting partnerships, but it should be noted that the new regulations will not give permission to those operators to offer online or mobile betting.

After all, there are no mentions regarding digital betting on those regulations and as it seems, new legislation would be needed for those. It is also noteworthy that the four casinos will offer automated betting kiosks, but only inside their betting lounges.
