Cuomo and New York state legislators agreed to legalize online sports betting as part of the state budget adopted in April. Legislators pushed for a model, similar to New Jersey, where casinos would join with mobile betting companies.Jul 21, 2021
New York does not offer any legal online casinos. You do have the option of playing on a sweepstakes casino, like Chumba Casino and Luckyland Slots. New Yorkers will need to take a trip across the border to play at any of the New Jersey or Pennsylvania regulated online casinos.
While sports bars that aren't at a racetrack or casino can't offer sports betting, New Yorkers can travel to New Jersey and bet from any bar in the state. All you have to do is register at a New Jersey sportsbook like DraftKings, and you're good to go once you're in the state.
