New York State sets launch date for online sports bets

In a matter of days sports betting will be live in New York.

A news release from the State Gaming Commission said it will launch Saturday at 9 a.m.


The approved vendors are Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive.

Sports betting has been legal in New York since 2019. Mobile betting was signed into law during the Cuomo administration, and now will be rolled out officially.


Here’s the messages that was shared by the state’s Gaming Commission on Thursday:

“The NYS Gaming Commission announced today that four licensed Mobile Sports Wagering Operators – Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive – have satisfied all statutory and regulatory requirements necessary to accept and process mobile sports wagering activity and have been approved to commence operations with launch effective no earlier than Saturday, January 8, 2022 at 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. After that effective date, each licensee (Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive) will determine when to accept wagers, based upon its business capabilities and readiness. The remaining five conditionally licensed Mobile Sports Wagering Operators continue to work towards satisfying statutory and regulatory requirements necessary to launch and will be approved on a rolling basis when requirements are met.”
