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.
Sports betting is now legal at the Empire State’s Tribal and Commercial casinos following the New York Gaming Commission issuing the appropriate regulations in June 2019.
State Governor Andrew Cuomo has now also legalized online sports betting as his primary driver to repair the state’s pandemic-influenced budget gap. The state is still yet to choose the two platform providers that will provide New York’s online sports betting backbone.
