The New York Gaming Commission voted on June 10, 2019, to allow in-person betting in four upstate casinos — Resorts World, Rivers Casino, Tioga Downs and Del Lago — located hundreds of miles away from New York City. Wagering officially launched on July 16, 2019. So while you can now legally bet in person at the four upstate casinos, bettors can hope that 2020 is the year mobile betting comes to the Empire State, though it’s far from a sure thing. On Feb. 11, Assemblyman Gary Pretlow joined his counterpart in the Senate, Joseph Addabbo Jr., in advocating for the inclusion of mobile sports betting within the 2020 NY budget. Gov. Andrew Cuomo's lack of enthusiastic support for doing so is still an issue. A study released in February 2020 estimated that New York is losing $200+ million in revenue by not legalizing online sports betting.
