In 2021, numerous "consortiums" applied for joint online sports betting licenses in the state, and nine licenses were awarded. Five operators are live in New York as of January 17th, 2022, when BetMGM went live in the state.

This behemoth betting provider joins the ranks of FanDuel, DraftKings, Caesars and BetRivers, all of whom are now offering online sports betting in the Empire State.

New York Sports Betting Timeline

While former Governor Andrew Cuomo was on board with legalizing online sports betting in New York, a few speed bumps got in the way of a smooth release of online betting legislation. Here's a quick rundown of how legal sports betting came to be in recent history:

  • May 2018: PASPA is overturned, meaning that states can internally decide whether or not to legalize sports wagering without (much) federal oversight.
  • Summer 2019: In-person sports betting rules are approved by the New York State Gaming Commission.
  • Jan. 2021: Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. files Senate Bill 1183, in tandem with Assemblyman Gary Pretlow's A1257.
  • Jan. 2021: Former Governor Cuomo's Fiscal Year 2022 Budget includes sports betting revenues, which indicates gubernatorial support for legal sports betting.
  • Aug. 2021: Cuomo resigns.
  • Sept. 2021: Sportsbooks begin to bid for applications after an RFA is released.
  • October 2021: Operators must agree to tax rates and application fees before qualifying.
  • November 2021: License winners are announced by the NYGC.
  • January 8, 2022: Sports betting goes live!

How to Place a Sports Bet in New York

Legal, in-person betting on sports is alive and well in NY and has been since the practice first began at venues in July 2019. Here, there are nearly twelve commercial and tribal casinos upstate. The locations of these casinos for NY sports betting are Bridgeport, Verona, Waterloo, Nicholls, Monticello, and Schenectady.

Like residents of other U.S. states, New Yorkers had to wait for the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn the federal ban on sports betting implemented through PASPA. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was implemented in 1992, disallowing betting in non-grandfathered states. However, the Supreme Court of the United States rescinded the ban on wagering in 2018, and since then, states have gradually embraced online sports betting.

Now with New York online sports betting legalized, there are even more options for those in the Empire State. Here’s how the legality of online sports betting shapes up at present:

Details of New York's Sports Betting Law

What we do know: the above operators have been approved a select few licenses in NY, at a staggering 51% tax rate. Four operators hit the ground running on opening weekend in January 2022, and now sports betting is in full swing in NY.

Sports betting is currently available at casinos, and is online with apps and browser sites as of Saturday, January 8th 2022. The following rules apply for NY sports betting:

  • You must be 21 years of age or older to participate.
  • You must have no involvement with any professional or collegiate sporting organizations.
  • You can’t be on a self-exclusion list.
  • Anyone in an authoritative position, or any participating athlete who may influence other participants in a sporting event, is prohibited from betting.
  • Any athlete who can use his/her performance to sway the outcome of matches is banned from betting.

Legislation and Bills Relevant to NY Online Sports Betting

In the US, sports betting is legislated on the state level. To drastically simplify the process, each individual state has to draft bills to legalize sports betting which are then typically signed into law by that state's governor. In some states, the process differs based on the structure of gaming commissions, tribal agreements called "compacts", and more.

In New York, legislators made several pushes towards legal betting and continue to issue bills to expand and add structure to legal wagering:

  • January 2022: A1257, companion bill to the Senate's S1183, is re-filed.
  • January 2022: S1183 is amended to include the expansion of horse racing and re-filed.
  • November 2021: Sen. Addabbo files S7536. to expand the availability of horse racing in the state.
  • November 2021: The New York State Gaming Commission approves nine licenses for mobile wagering.
  • 2020: Instead of filing a new bill, legislators include sports wagering in the 2021 Fiscal Year budget, which is approved by then-Governor Cuomo.
  • 2019: The New York State Gaming Commission adopts rules for sports wagering at gaming facilities.
  • 2018: Sports betting becomes federally legal with the overturning of PASPA.
  • 2013: New York's law adds a provision for sports betting to be conducted at commercial casinos, if federally legal.

Step-by-Step Process for New York Online Sports Betting

When the first betting apps launch in the state, bettors will be clamoring to sign up and start betting. You’ll have a few sites to choose from, but before you decide, ensure that you've read the Terms and Conditions carefully.

Once you’ve selected the bookmaker of your choice, follow these steps to sign up:

  1. Click the "Register" or "Sign Up" button on the betting site of your choice.
  2. Provide personal details including your SSN and email to verify your identity. (Your information is kept on secured servers licensed by the New York State Gaming Division)
  3. If you have one, enter a promo code at sign-up for extras like a deposit match, risk-free bets, or bet insurance when you place your first ever wagers on the platform.
  4. Add a payment method to your account and make an initial deposit in order to secure welcome offers.

Before placing your first bet, you must fund your account. Sportsbooks will have varying deposit methods available. You can expect them to have many of these popular options:

  • Credit or debit cards
  • PayPal
  • E-wallets
  • Prepaid cards
  • Online banking

Ensure that you look out for welcome offers and include the relevant promo code (if necessary) when depositing funds for the first time. New York sportsbooks use promotions to attract new customers. The welcome offers are a great way to get started for new bettors, and a way to add value to your betting experience for seasoned bettors.

Once you’ve topped off your account, place your bet with the betting slip located on the screen. Most sportsbooks have a guide to all available betting types. These guides are handy if you’re new to wagering on sporting events.



Betting Markets and Events New YorkNew York Betting Markets: NFL, NBA, NHL, & MORE

Popular New York Events

New York state has produced multiple world-renowned sports teams, so you have an array of popular sports at your fingertips for NY sports betting. You can wager by logging into these apps or from your desktop.

You can find basketball, football, baseball, golf, tennis, motorsport, boxing, and numerous other sports available for wagering on reputable NY sportsbooks, including:

  • Super Bowl
  • New York Marathon
  • U.S Open Tennis Tournament
  • U.S Open Golf
  • Daytona 500
  • World Series
  • Kentucky Derby
  • Indy 500

Common Types of Bets

When it comes to betting, seasoned bettors know the various betting types. If you're new to sports betting, you'll be most comfortable making straight moneyline bets until you get the hang of things. Here are some of the common bet types you’ll find now that legal wagering is online in the state:

Moneyline or a totals: a bet is being placed on the preferred team or athlete to outright win the event. The moneyline is displayed in negative or positive values, and in US betting refers to the amount you could win per $100 wagered.

For example, imagine a hypothetical event between Team A and Team B. Team A’s moneyline reads -200. This means that they’re the team favored to win.

If you place a bet on Team A to win, you’ll have to wager $200 to make a profit of $100. If Team B is the underdog at a +200 betting odds, a wager of $100 will make a profit of $200.

Other common types of bets include:

Parlays: where you spread your risk over more than one event or match.

Futures: where you bet on future events that have not yet taken place, ie: the winner of the NFL Championship.

Make sure to read into betting odds and get educated on your favorite teams before risking real money on a bet!

Most Popular Sports to Bet On

Baseball, basketball, and football are the reigning champions among the most watched sports in New York. Still, the top sports betting sites will offer everything from pro sports to collegiate events to darts!

MMA fans will find a home on these sports betting websites, too. In some cases you’ll even be able to bet on international events like tennis matches, World Cup soccer, and Aussie rules football.

There are some state-specific restrictions to sports betting, however. As it stands in late 2019, bets on any New York state college teams (like Syracuse or Fordham) are not legal-- this restriction does apply to online bets.

Popular New York Events

  • Subway Series
  • Super Bowl
  • World Series
  • Stanley Cup
  • March Madness (betting on NY colleges is not allowed)

Daily Fantasy Sports in New York

Players have participated in daily fantasy sports in New York for a handful of years. In 2016, the governor signed a law stating that fantasy sports fall outside gambling regulations, as they are games of skill and not chance. This perception was in line with many other states’ decisions on legal daily fantasy sports.

In 2018, a judge ruled that fantasy sports were in violation of New York’s gambling laws, and they were once again banned. The case went under appeal, and in early 2020, a New York appeals court upheld the 2018 ruling.

Daily fantasy sports (DFS) are in limbo in New York and their future hangs in the balance. Contests on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings continue in the state until a final ruling on DFS is issued.



Betting on New York TeamsBetting on Pro Sports Teams

Betting on the Empire State’s major league teams used to only be available at retail sportsbooks. But as of January 2022, bettors can now bet online on apps while watching live games from the comfort of their homes. Sports are a large part of daily life in the state, and these are the teams garnering the support of New Yorkers.


New York Football Betting

NFL Betting in New York

Football remains one of the most popular sports in the USA and a common feature for legal sportsbooks. The state’s residents are spoiled for choice when betting in New York, with three NFL teams to call their own.

New York Giants

Giants DraftKings

The Giants compete in the National Football Conference East Division of the NFL. They’ve been in this division since the American Football League (AFL) and NFL merged way back in 1970. This is the third most successful franchise in the National Football League, having won 16 Division Championships, 11 Conference Championships, and four Super Bowl Championships since joining the NFL in 1925.

The New York City metropolitan area is the home base for the Giants. They currently play their home games at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, which they share with the New York Jets. You can place bets on your favorite players including Andrew Thomas and Saquon Barkley

New York Jets

WynnJETS

The New York Jets also have their base in the NYC metropolitan area. As was previously mentioned, the Jets share the MetLife Stadium with the Giants for home games, an arrangement they entered in 2010.

Initially established as the Titans of New York, the Jets are members of the NFL’s American Football Conference East Division and once the team of legend Joe Namath. They’ve had less success than the New York Giants, having won the Super Bowl just once in 1968. A healthy "sibling rivalry" exists between the two teams; no doubt New York betting sites can cash in on this rivalry now that betting is online.

Buffalo Bills

Competing against the Jets in the American Football Conference East Division are the Buffalo Bills. The Buffalo Bills is based in the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metropolitan area. They play home games at the Bills Stadium in Orchard Park, New York.

Having had a rather inconspicuous start to their NFL career through the 1970s and 1980s, the Buffalo Bills won four AFC Championships in the nineties. The team’s most recent accolade was winning the Division Championship in 2020, something it’s done eight times since joining the AFC East Division. Loyal Buffalo Bills supporters will continue to back their team, like QB Josh Allen when betting online at New York sportsbooks.


New York Basketball Betting

NBA Betting in New York

Enthusiasts of New York sports betting no longer have to wait in anticipation to wager on the NBA online. With National Basketball Association games attracting massive crowds and providing an exciting level of entertainment, they feature highly on available apps. The state has two teams in the NBA, both worthy of support at New York sportsbooks.

New York Knickerbockers

Knicks BetMGM

Better known as the New York Knicks, this team competes in the NBA’s Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. The team is based in Manhattan and plays home games at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks is one of two of the original NBA teams still based in its original city.

The Knicks have experienced mixed success, with their most recent victory being the division title in 2013. Before that, they’d won four conference titles, the last being in 1999. It has two championship titles to its name and hopes for better success in the coming seasons. Look to Julius Randle for a strong showing in the 2022 season.

Brooklyn Nets

Another team that New Yorkers can back are the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets’ base is in the borough of Brooklyn in NYC. They play home games in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference at the Barclays Center.

The team played for some time as the New Jersey Nets. They moved to New York in 2012, changing their name to the Brooklyn Nets. Despite winning four division titles and two conference titles as the New Jersey Nets, the team has yet to reign victorious since relocating back to New York. Still, players like Jason Kidd went down as historic players when NJ was the home state of this famous franchise.


New York NHL Betting

NHL Betting in New York

Ice hockey has widespread support throughout the Empire State. The National Hockey League is another major league where New York has a larger presence than many other states; they have two NHL teams.

New York Rangers

BetMGM Rangers

The New York Rangers started in 1926 and are members of the East Division in the National Hockey League. Like its NBA counterpart, the New York Knicks, they play home games at the world-renowned Madison Square Garden.

In recent years, their success has been minimal, with the Rangers’ last title win coming in the 2014-2015 season. That year saw the team win both the division championships and the President’s Trophy.

New York Islanders

Like their rivals, the Rangers, the Islanders play in the East Division of the NHL. Based in Uniondale, the team enjoys a raft of support from Long Island residents who will undoubtedly welcome online wagers.

Founded in 1972, the New York Islanders hit success after just a few seasons. The team reached the playoffs 14 times and won the Stanley Cup for four consecutive years. Things went somewhat awry in the late 1980s, and the Islanders haven’t managed a title win since the 1987-1988 season.


New York MLB Betting

MLB Betting in New York

Baseball is widely regarded as the most popular sport in New York and is known to draw large crowds to home games. In keeping with the state’s representation in the other major leagues, there are two franchises competing in Major League Baseball. Both teams are expected to feature on the betting landscape and generate interest at New York sportsbooks.

New York Yankees

The New York Yankees started as the Baltimore Orioles, becoming the New York Highlanders in 1903 and taking their present name in 2013. Based in the Bronx, the Yankees compete in the East Division of the American League. The team is well supported on the NY sports betting scene.

The Yankees are a hugely successful franchise and hold several MLB records, including the World Series Championship, which they’ve held 27 times. It’s no surprise that they consistently draw one of the largest crowds of all the teams in the NBA.

New York Mets

The borough of Queens is home to the New York Mets, which play in the National League’s East Division. The team’s home ground is Citi Field, where they settled in 2009 after the famed Shea Stadium was torn to the ground and rebuilt.

The Mets have won the World Series on two occasions, in 1969 and 1986. Their most recent accolades were winning both the East Division title and National League pennant in 2015.

Other New York Teams to Bet on

Residents can easily wager on their favorite professional teams. Unfortunately, betting on college teams remains illegal in NY.


New York NCAA Football Betting

College Football in New York

Buffalo Bulls

The Buffalo Bulls are the home team of the University of Buffalo in New York. They’re a member of the Mid-American Conference, competing in the NCAA Division 1 in the Football Bowl subdivision.

The team celebrated some success in the 2000s thus far, winning four division titles and one conference title. Their most successful year was 2008, when they won both the division title and the conference title.

Syracuse Orange

Syracuse University is home to the Syracuse Orange football team. Playing home games at the Carrier Dome, the Syracuse Orange compete in the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference and the NCAA’s Football Bowl Subdivision.

The team has a long history of successes, with five conference championships since 1991, two undefeated seasons, and a myriad of individual player accolades. The team has also finished in the Final Top 25 rankings 21 times and spent seven weeks as the top-rated team in the Associated Press polls.


New York NCAA Basketball Betting

College Basketball in New York

Syracuse Orange

The Syracuse Orange basketball team from Syracuse University competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference of the NCAA Division 1. Its home venue is the Carrier Dome, which has the largest capacity in NCAA Division 1 basketball, holding over 35,000 spectators.

The Syracuse Orange were the NCAA Tournament Champions in 2003, and were runner-ups in 1987 and 1996. Their games draw huge crowds, and have had the largest average attendance per game in fourteen non-consecutive seasons.

St. John’s Red Storm

St. John’s Red Storm from the St. John’s University in Queens would be an excellent option if betting on college teams becomes legal. The team competes in the NCAA Big East Conference and has been Conference Tournament Champions three times. The St. John’s Red Storm currently play their home games at the Carnesecca Arena and train at the adjacent Taffner Field House.
