New York Sports Betting Laws
Sports betting is a rapidly growing market, with many new sites popping up each year. A recent study found that 23.2 million Americans plan to bet $4.3 billion on the Super Bowl. Of these, 7.6 million said they would wager online. By 2023, it is estimated that the U.S. sports betting market will hit $1 billion and grow six-fold, topping $19 billion. Increasing demand for online betting is creating multi-billion-dollar marketing niches.
With New York State legalizing online sports betting, the state’s gaming industry is in a great position to grow. In April 2021, two groups are set to launch online sports betting in the state. The “super group” includes Bally’s, DraftKings, FanDuel NY, Seneca Nation, Buffalo Bills, and Buffalo Sabres. A second group, which has been referred to as “super-groups,” includes Caesars Sportsbook, Rush Street Interactive, and WynnBET.
If the state legalizes online sports betting, it will soon be a booming industry. However, before it can fully implement the program, regulators must come up with rules for both mobile and retail sportsbooks. In the meantime, the first retail bets are likely to be placed during the fall of 2021, while online wagering will not be available until fall of 2022. While many states are regulating sports gambling, a few states have chosen the multi-operator route, and this may limit the number of legalized markets.
In the United States, the legalization of sports betting has been slow, but it’s on track to be legal in 2021. While there are still many hurdles ahead, sportsbooks in New York are expected to launch in the second or third week of January. If they do, they’ll be the first in the country to offer sports betting. This legislation may also help to boost the economy. Further, the legalization of online gambling in New York will help the state’s regulated industries to grow.
The US Supreme Court’s decision will give the sports betting industry a windfall growth. In fact, the industry’s biggest obstacle has been the lack of a legal online market. Until now, all betting has been done at upstate casinos in the state. Now, the only way for sports betting in the state to operate legally is through a mobile phone. This would allow players to place bets on any sport, including sports in New York.
The New York sports betting industry is a major growth driver in the state. It is estimated that New York’s sportsbooks will generate $3.57 million in gross revenue through January 2022. Earlier this year, the state of New York banned all sports betting in the state. In December, the state passed a law that allows online sports betting and mobile betting. These two measures will make it legal in New Jersey to bet on sports.
