There is lots to do when it comes to gambling in New York. However, the current emphasis is definitely on sports betting as it landed its massive craft in the Empire State only recently — and with all eyes on the upcoming Super Bowl LVI.
NY online sports betting started on January 8 after in-person betting was launched in 2019. Many of the biggest US sportsbooks were on board instantly, including DraftKings Sportsbook, Caesars Sportsbook, BetMGM sportsbook, and BetRivers and FanDuel Sportsbook that went live on January 17 this year.
New York selected nine online sportsbooks to launch in NY, so there will be some more options available for sports betting fans in the Empire State that will make it the US sports betting hub.
So, there you have it — with nine sportsbooks and many of the top operators, you’ll have no trouble finding the sport you love to bet on.
Here are your top five operator picks for the newly-launched sports betting in the Empire State:
Caesars Sportsbook NY went live in January 2022. And, because everybody knows the Caesars brand, it also needs no introduction. There is a Caesars retail casino in the state as well. This sportsbook likes to keep its standards high, and it also offers rewards programs to its customers, which is not that common among sportsbooks. Don’t overlook this option if you haven’t made up your mind yet because it’s got some fantastic opportunities and excellent customer support.
DraftKings Sportsbook New York is currently live and kicking in the Empire States. This operator has achieved so much within the past few years, including branching out with online casinos and daily fantasy sports options. Betting activity will primarily take place via the DraftKings app, an extremely versatile and user-friendly program that makes sports betting fun and entertaining.
On top of all this, DraftKings Sportsbook does not skimp on promotions and there is an awesome DraftKings NY welcome bonus up for grabs right now, making it a great all-round New York online sportsbook option.
The BetMGM sportsbook app is part of MGM Resorts International — a brand that screams luxury and quality. BetMGM is often the top online sportsbook in other states. This can be attributed to its knack for offering a great market depth, fantastic BetMGM New York promotions and bonus deals, and a sleek and sexy user interface that makes you feel like a million bucks, and a sterling reputation.
FanDuel Sportsbook NY officially went live on January 8 this year. Before becoming one of New York’s top online sports betting operators, it has been a trusted provider of fantasy sports for NY fans and also has its headquarters in the Empire State.
FanDuel sportsbook fans don’t have to drive through to the FanDuel Sportsbook in Meadowlands, NJ anymore, ‘cause it’s available within state lines!
We predict that FanDuel Sportsbook NY will become just as popular as FanDuel DFS.
Esports betting is legal in New York, but it is heavily regulated. Nonetheless, there are some great esports and daily fantasy sports options for those who like to put their money where their favorite FSP game is.
New York offers platforms like RushGames.com, DraftKings Daily Fantasy Sports, and Monkey Knife Fight. If you’re a sucker for games, but you’re also a gambler by heart, then esports betting may just be perfect for you.
