Bet at

The New York State Gaming Commission has approved nine online sports-betting operators for licenses, including DraftKings, FanDuel, Bally Sports, BetMGM, PointsBet, Caesars, WynnBet, Kambi and Resorts World.

The Monday announcement by the state’s gaming commission allows for those approved operators to accept online and mobile bets, which are currently not allowed in the state. New Yorkers are only legally allowed to place sports bet in-person at four casinos in upstate New York.
