New York
Retail Sportsbook Locations

New York State has nearly a dozen brick-and-mortar sportsbook locations. A number of casinos have affiliations with popular sportsbook operators. Three of the four commercial casino locations are partnered with the following companies: DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetRivers. The start date for New York’s online sports betting apps was January 8, 2022.

Licensed By

New York State Gaming Commission

New York Approved

We only list apps that are regulated and licensed in New York.

New York sportsbooks located upstate offer a wide variety of NY sports betting options. New Yorkers must go to Upstate locations to bet on sports in-state legally. No retail sportsbooks are in New York City, the closest to the Big Apple would be Resorts World Catskills. 

New York sports betting enthusiasts were able to start using select online betting apps beginning on Jan. 8, 2022. The New York State Gaming Commission named nine sportsbooks to have sports betting licenses, including the three above-mentioned sportsbooks, and adds Caesars Sportsbook, PointsBet, WynnBET, Resorts World Bet, BetMGM, and Bally Bet (which paused operations in mid-2023). More sportsbooks could be coming by 2025.

Key Features

Resorts World Catskills has a massive sportsbook with tons of 75-inch TVs. In fact, it gets the name Sportsbook 360 from offering a 360-degree view of the action.

The Sports Lounge at Seneca Casinos (Three Locations in Buffalo Area)


Three Seneca casinos located in the Greater Buffalo Area offer a sportsbook. A sports betting kiosk is available 24/7 at all locations. Here are the addresses and hours of all three facilities.

Seneca Allegany

777 Seneca Allegany Blvd
Salamanca, NY 14779

  • Monday – Thursday: Noon ET – 8 p.m. ET
  • Friday – Saturday: 8 a.m. ET – 11 p.m. ET
  • Sunday: 8 a.m. ET – 9 p.m. ET

Seneca Buffalo Creek

1 Fulton St
Buffalo, NY 14204

  • Monday – Friday: 10 a.m. ET – Midnight ET
  • Saturday – Sunday: 8 a.m. ET – Midnight ET

Seneca Niagara

310 4th St
Niagara Falls, NY 14303

  • Daily: 10 a.m. ET – Midnight ET

Key Features

The reason that all three merit a single section is because they’re virtually the same, including the atmosphere as well as the features. A unique aspect of the Seneca Sportsbook is the ability to create your betslip before you go to the casino to save yourself some time. From home, you can make your picks, then head to The Lounge to officially place the wager.

Further, all three locations feature sports betting surrounded by casino action. That gives the Sports Lounge a unique New York sports betting atmosphere compared to most of the state’s other sportsbooks, which are usually relegated to their own area.


Sticks Sports Book & Grill at Akwesasne Mohawk Casino


873 NY-37
Hogansburg, NY 13655

Key Features

Up in Hogansburg near the Canadian border, Akwesasne Mohawk Casino has the state’s northernmost sportsbook. It has a 13-foot tall video wall and eight 65-inch TVs. While not the biggest, a welcome addition to the sports betting option for those in Northern New York. If you like beer, Maple Brewing is made on-site, and it’s only available inside Akwesasne.


  • Sunday, Wednesday – Thursday: Noon ET – 9 p.m. ET
  • Friday – Saturday: Noon ET – 10 p.m. ET
  • Not open on Monday and Tuesday

Sports Betting in New York State: A Brief Breakdown

Sports betting was legalized in New York State in July 2019. Since then, 11 retail sportsbook locations have opened across the state.

For now, no sportsbooks are actually located in New York City. The closest in-state option is Resorts World Catskills, while the closest sportsbook, in general, is the FanDuel Sportsbook at Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Online sports betting officially launched in New York on Jan. 8, 2022. All nine mobile sportsbooks are now live and available.

What Bets Can You Place in New York?

When you visit a brick-and-mortar New York sportsbook, you can expect every professional sport represented. This includes all major league American sports as well as international competitions, such as European soccer and Korean baseball.

A sports betting genre growing in popularity every year is MMA, and sportsbooks are a great place to watch the fight while placing bets.

The types of bets you can make in New York include:

  • Straight Bets
  • Point Spreads
  • Futures
  • Over/Under
  • Parlays, Teasers, Pleasers
  • In-Game/Live Betting

And while you can bet on college sports, you cannot bet on in-state schools. That means you can watch the Syracuse and Buffalo games in the sportsbook, but you can’t wager on it. You’ll have to travel to New Jersey or Pennsylvania to do so.

You also can’t bet on politics, the weather, or TV competitions, such as the Bachelor or American Idol.

Are Retail Sportsbooks Available in New York City?

At this time, no. For now, those interested in NYC sports betting will have to do so using an online or mobile sportsbook.

Sports betting in NYC will surely get retail sportsbook options in time. Currently, though, the closest New York sportsbook to New York City is Resorts World Catskills in Monticello, which is about 100 miles northwest of the Big Apple. The closest overall sportsbook is the FanDuel Sportsbook at Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey, just across the river.

Types of Sports Bets in New York

You can place pretty much any type of wager on any professional or college game (except for in-state schools) when sports betting in NY. Here’s an overview of each one:

Straight Bets

The simplest bet you can make. Pick which team will lose. If they do, you win the payout. The number of goals or overtime does not matter. However, if the game ends in a tie, the bet is lost. That’s why in soccer, straight bet picks are the two teams as well as a tie.

Point Spread

A point spread bet means you’re betting on one of two outcomes:

  • The favorite wins by a minimum number of points, or;
  • The underdog wins or loses within a minimum number of points.


A futures bet is where you pick a team or player that wins something in the future. For example, you can bet on the Super Bowl or Rookie of the Year winner at the start of the NFL season.

Prop Bet

A prop bet is a specialty bet placed on a player or team performance. Examples include number of field goals or who wins MVP. 


Commonly listed as O/U, an over/under means you’re betting that the combined total points will be over or under the sportsbook’s number.

Parlays, Teasers, and Pleasers

A parlay is where you bet on multiple events, and all need to win for there to be a payout. Teaser and pleasers are simply parlays with adjusted odds.

In-Game/Live Betting

Once the game begins, sportsbooks will take in-game bets, meaning wagers placed after the opening whistle. Another term for in-game bets is live betting.

What Sports and Leagues Are Available To Bet on in New York?

The New York sports betting scene is arguably the most exciting in the country because it’s the most crowded sports state in America. Translation: There are lots and lots of opportunities for those interested in sports betting in NY.

MLB Baseball

With two MLB teams in New York — the Yankees and Mets — and 162 regular-season games to bet on from April through October, baseball is a huge deal for NY sports betting. It especially helps when both the Yankees and Mets are enjoying successful seasons, which they are in 2022. That means the sports betting opportunities could extend throughout the postseason, too.

NFL Football

New York boasts three NFL teams in the New York Jets, New York Giants, and Buffalo Bills, so NY sports betting sees a weekly spike on NFL Sundays. The NFL is the most popular betting sport in the US, and that includes New York. Not only do New Yorkers have three teams to bet on, but the Super Bowl is always one of the biggest days in sports betting, second only to the Kentucky Derby.

The Jets and Giants haven’t shown much promise in recent seasons, but the Bills are a popular pick to win Super Bowl 57.

NBA Basketball

The New York sports betting scene sees lots of NBA action, and that shouldn’t be a surprise. With 82 regular-season games and two teams in the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets, there’s no shortage of changes to wager. It helps that the Knicks, despite not having much success lately, are one of the NBA’s most popular teams. The Nets potentially losing Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving this offseason could make Brooklyn a less popular bet.

New York also has a WNBA team in the New York Liberty for interested NY sports bettors.

NHL Hockey

The NHL provides New Yorkers with another long season and four teams that are popular to bet on: the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Buffalo Sabres, and New Jersey Devils. With ESPN and TNT taking over NHL broadcasting, the league is poised to grow in popularity and, thus, entice more sports bettors too.

College Basketball

More money is bet on the NCAA Tournament or March Madness than any other sporting event in the US. From unlicensed office pools to legal sportsbooks, New Yorkers can’t help but put money on at least one bracket. For now, note that any events that take place in New York cannot be bet on.

New York boasts plenty of college basketball teams that could make some noise in the NCAA Tournament, including Syracuse, St. John’s, St. Bonaventure, Buffalo, Iona, Siena, and Cornell.

MLS Soccer

Although it’s still more of a niche professional sports league in the US, MLS provides passionate soccer fans with plenty of sports betting opportunities. New York has two MLS teams in the New York Red Bulls and New York City FC.

Can You Bet on Esports in New York State?

Not yet. We reached out to the sportsbook manager at the Rivers Sportsbook, who informed us that the New York Gaming Commission is still deliberating on the legality surrounding esports.

The problem is that professional esports teams will sometimes have players under the age of 18. This is especially true for the massive international competitions.

However, New York sportsbooks can take bets on college sports as long as they’re not in-state. It stands to reason they could also take bets on esports that don’t feature minor players.

For now, esports bets are on the horizon but not yet listed at any NYS sportsbook.

New York Retail Sportsbooks FAQs

Are there any sportsbooks in New York City?

No. New York City does not have any sportsbooks. The closest legal sports betting locations are Upstate at Resorts World Catskills or across the bridge in East Rutherford, NJ. Online sports betting is also legal across New York State.

Are there any sportsbooks in Buffalo, New York?

Yes. Seneca Casino Buffalo Creek offers sports betting. Other locations in close proximity to Buffalo are Seneca Casino Niagara Falls and Seneca Casino Allegany. All three Seneca Casinos do offer a sportsbook. 

However, Seneca Gaming And Entertainment locations, such as the one in Irving, do not have sports betting.

How many sportsbooks are in Syracuse?

The Syracuse Metropolitan Area has two sportsbooks, Yellow Brick Road in Chittenango and Point Place in Binghamton. However, the most popular casino in Central New York is Turning Stone Casino and Resort, which is likely by virtue of their nightly live entertainment from big names as well as world-class golfing.

Can I claim a sports betting bonus offer at a New York retail location?

In most cases, no. Mobile sportsbook offers are generally exclusive to bettors on that platform only. They will not be able to claim these promotions when directly placing a wager at a booth or kiosk. However, bettors can access the mobile app at a sportsbook location and take advantage of the promotions that way.

What is the age requirement for sportsbooks in New York?

18 or 21. Depending on the New York sportsbook, the age to enter is 18 years old or 21 years old. If you’re under 21, some locations may let you bet at the kiosks but not enter the sports lounge, which could constitute a separate bar.

Is smoking allowed in New York sportsbooks?

Yes. Smoking is allowed in most tribal casinos in New York, including the sports betting areas. During the COVID-19 pandemic, some casinos temporarily banned smoking on the gaming floor to ensure players wore masks at all times. But in general, smoking is allowed.

Do I need to pay taxes on sports bets won in New York?

You are expected to pay income tax on net winnings. 

That means if you won more than you lost at the sportsbook over the course of the year, you’re legally obligated to pay a maximum of 8.82% to the New York Department of Taxation and Finance. 

But that’s the top marginal rate, meaning you won’t have to pay that unless you’re in the highest tax bracket. You’ll also have to pay the IRS 24% of all net gambling winnings.

Is in-game or live betting allowed in New York sportsbooks?

Yes. Betting after a game has begun is legal in New York State. This is a bit more difficult if you’re not sitting at a betting kiosk while the game is played, and in-game/live betting is more popular on mobile betting apps. Still, it’s legally allowed and a popular betting method in New York.
