Retail Legal Sports Betting Providers in New York
Although online betting isn’t possible yet, New York legalized retail sports betting back in 2013. The first legal bet was placed six years later though once the PASPA was overturned. There are also limits on the number of licenses for retail sports betting in NY, so there aren’t many places you can bet. The available ones aren’t anywhere close to the city, so for some people, it might be closer to head to New Jersey and bet there.

Sports betting in New York is legal, but only in some casinos. We are waiting to see if the increase in betting revenues and the support of certain individuals will be enough to legalize online and mobile sports betting in New York this year, or will we have to wait for more.
