Legal sports gambling in the state of New York has had plenty of movement since the PASPA was overturned. However, there have been as many moves backward as forwards for The Empire State, and they are still working to create a fully-realized industry.
There are brick and mortar sportsbooks up and running in the state. However, the availability of sports betting apps remains a no-go in the state.
Statewide Brick and Mortar Sportsbooks
As for now, only pre-existing casinos have been able to open sportsbooks. This looks to change in the near future as other venues such as horse tracks will be allowed to apply for licenses.
- Rivers Sportsbook Schenectady
- FanDuel Sportsbook Tioga Downs
- DraftKings Sportsbook del Lago Resort Casino
- Turning Stone Syracuse
- Point Place Bridgepoint
- Yellow Brick Road Casino Chittenango
- Resorts World Catskills Monticello
- Akwesasne Mohawk Casino
Available Betting Apps in New York State
As mentioned, there are no legal sports betting apps available in New York state. The only type of online gambling sports bettors can find is of the off-shore, unregulated variety.
Despite multiple setbacks in the statehouse concerning legal online sports gambling, it is safe to say there will be sports betting apps in the near future. The state has shown the willingness to regulate a sports betting market.
Plus, seeing the success of neighboring states such as New Jersey and Pennsylvania only forces the issue forward.
Best Bonuses and Promotions
Due to a lack of online sportsbooks, any bonuses and promotions found in New York state will vary from sportsbook to sportsbook and be limited in scope.
Sports Available for Betting
The sports available to bet at New York state sportsbooks will vary slightly from sportsbook to sportsbook. However, look for there to be plenty of the popular American sports and leagues available as well as some international sports as well.
- Football (NFL and NCAAF)
- Basketball (NBA, WNBA, NCAAM)
- Baseball (MLB and NCAA)
- Hockey (NHL)
- Soccer (MLS, Premier League, World Cup)
- Combat Sports (UFC and Boxing)
- Golf (PGA, LPGA)
- Auto Sports (F-1, NASCAR)
Of course, payment options will vary from site to site and sportsbook to sportsbook. However, what we’ve seen thus far is industry standard.
Along with cash, debit, and credit cards, players can also use bank transfers or specialty prepaid cards available via the sportsbook of choice.
