Essentially, New York is a progressive gambling state that allows many forms of online gaming, including online horse and greyhound betting and Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) competitions for real money. The big 3 legal horse racing betting sites and the biggest 2 DFS operators based in the United States all accept customers from the Empire State.
Technically, sports betting is legal at the state’s commercial casinos in New York, however, the casinos need to patiently wait for the bureaucracy of the New York Gaming Commission to issue the appropriate regulations. Alternatively, the State’s Legislators may be required to pass a new law that will expand legal sports betting. Word has it that only online poker might be included as online gaming option, but time will tell and we’ll let you know how the situation unfolds.
