Is sports betting regulated or unregulated? 

Technically regulated

Sports betting was authorized in New York during a 2013 casino referendum should the federal ban be dropped. With PASPA repealed, the New York Gaming Commission approved a set of sports betting regulations in January 2019, permitting four upstate casinos to accept sports wagers. Sports betting is forecast to be up and running by the summer of 2019.

Is sports betting permitted online?

No. The regulations given the green light in January 2019 included no provisions for mobile wagering. It’s unclear whether mobile can be added to these regulations or if it would require a change to the Empire State’s constitution.

 

Is there any specific legislation for daily fantasy sports?

Yes, since 2016, although it continues to be mired in legal uncertainty and some companies have chosen to remain out of the state. In November 2018, the New York Gaming Commission ceased overseeing DFS following a court ruling which said New York legislators had exceeded their authority by previously defining DFS as a game of skill.

 

What legislation, if any, is currently pending?

None
