So, of course, many sports betting fans in New York were eager for this new sportsbook. Now that is finally live, here is all the information we know about this new Caesars Sportsbook NY.
New York Sports Betting
Firstly, you may be wondering if sports betting is legal in New York. Now, after PASPA, the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was overturned in 2018, it paved the way for legal sports betting in the US. So, states have been able to legalize and regulate sports betting on a state by state basis.
Recently, New York state passed legislation to allow for New York casinos to allow for licenses to open and operate on-site sportsbooks. That means that existing casinos can open their own on-site retail sportsbooks. That means a lot of existing casinos are partnering with existing sportsbook operators.
Caesars Entertainment has partnered with Turning Stone Resort Casino to introduce The Lounge sportsbook. Caesars Sportsbooks were already up and running in other states, online and in person. Finally, the Turning Stone Sportsbook opened this summer. However, since NY Online Sports Betting is still not legal, it is hard to say when an online betting platform can be expected.
Things are moving fast for the Empire State and hopefully, when land-based sportsbook launch and prove their success, online and mobile sports betting platforms will be available. The Caesars Sports App is already available in NJ, and the NY app will probably be very similar.
