NY Launch Updates
The day New York sports bettors have been waiting for will arrive this weekend. DraftKings NY and FanDuel NY are now offering $100 early registration offers for users who join before Saturday.
The New York State Gaming Commission on Jan. 6 announced that mobile sports betting will launch statewide on Jan. 8 at 9 a.m. ET.
State lawmakers long hoped the day would come in time for New York sports bettors to be able to place wagers on Super Bowl LVI, but the Empire State has beaten that date by more than one month.

What About The Other Sportsbook Apps?
In December, the NYSGC approved nine mobile sports betting platforms for operation in New York. That leaves five that have not been given the go-ahead to launch. Those are BetMGM, PointsBet, Resorts World Bet, WynnBET, and Bally Bet
In its Jan. 6 announcement, the NYSGC said the remaining five operators continue to work toward satisfying the statutory and regulatory requirements necessary to launch and that they will be approved on a rolling basis once those requirements are met.
“Today’s announcement by the New York State Gaming Commission…is great news for New York in terms of revenue, new funding for education, addiction programs, and youth sports, as well as new jobs,” New York State Senator Joseph Addabbo Jr. said in a statement. “I want to thank the Gaming Commission for their efficiency in ensuring that these operators met all of the requirements to bring their mobile sports betting product to the people of New York ahead of the NFL playoffs. I look forward to the other five operators satisfying the statutory and regulatory requirements necessary to launch in the near future and working with the Hochul Administration and Gaming commission.”
