Sportsbooks Available in NY Sometime Soon, But Not Yet

All nine approved sportsbooks have launched in the Empire State. Lawmakers will have to decide to grant more sports betting licenses, which can take up to a couple of years to occur. 

We'll update this section as soon as NY lawmakers come to a decision on approving additional operators in NY.

Being Licensed vs. Going Live in New York

New York’s licensing procedures differed from most other states. Sportsbooks teamed up to submit bids, and two consortiums were selected. The first group was DraftKings, FanDuel, Bally Sports, and BetMGM. The second group consisted of PointsBet (now replaced by Fanatics), Caesars, WynnBET, and Kambi (Resorts World). These sportsbooks were approved for online operation for the next 10 years by the New York State Gaming Commission.

However, not everyone made the cut: Previously, Penn Entertainment, Inc placed a bid (with Fanatics) and lost. Bet365 was also unable to acquire a sports betting license. As of now, all nine approved licenses have been used, so other sportsbooks may have to wait until at least 2025 to launch in NY.

New York Sports Betting Regulations

What can I bet on in New York?

Now that mobile sportsbook apps are online, you have the option to wager on a range of bet types and sports leagues. 

Legal Bet Types — Sports fans can bet a full range of bet types, including:

  • Point Spreads. Spread betting is a bet on the final score and the margin of victory in a game.
  • Moneylines. Moneyline betting is when you pick the outright winner of a game or event, either one team or another. 
  • First Half & Second Half. Halves let a bettor treat the first half and the second half as separate matches. 
  • Totals aka "Over/Unders." A total, also known as an over/under, is a bet on the number of points both teams will combine to score in a game.
  • Futures. Future bets are a bet on an event that will be decided in the future (e.g., end-of-season results and awards). 
  • Player Props. A "prop" bet, short for a proposition, is a wager that is not directly tied to the final score or outcome. These can get creative.

Available Sports — You can take advantage of the different bet types to wager on these sports legally:

  • Football: NFL & CFL 
  • Basketball: NBA, WNBA, European/international basketball leagues
  • Baseball: MLB 
  • Hockey: NHL, international hockey leagues
  • Soccer: MLS, English Premier League, UEFA Champions League
  • College sports: NCAA football and basketball (except for New York state teams)
  • Golf: PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, PGA Tour Champions, PGA European
  • Auto Racing: IndyCar, NASCAR, Formula One

Additional market choices like boxing, tennis, rugby and more will also be offered at New York's sportsbooks.

What can't I bet on in New York?

Many local sports fans may ask: "Can I place wagers on college games involving NY teams like Syracuse, Army, Buffalo or St. John's?" Unfortunately, the answer is no, collegiate betting has special restrictions. Here is what is not allowed.

There is no wagering on in-state college teams โŒ 

What does this mean? You cannot bet on New York collegiate teams like Syracuse men's basketball or Army football. This applies to any New York collegiate team, whether they're playing in the state or not. However, you can bet on college teams outside of the state.

No wagering on in-state collegiate events โŒ 

If there's a collegiate sporting event hosted in New York, New Yorkers can't legally bet on it, whether or not the teams are local. This means several bowl games, a host of neutral-site college basketball games, the Big East Tournament, Atlantic 10 Tournament, and some March Madness games over the next five years will be off-limits.

How NY Sports Betting Compares: The Sports Betting Report Card

We graded New York on its sports betting bill and experience relative to other states.

Mobile Apps

New York will have online betting soon through a variety sportsbook apps, which is a huge win for users in the state. The four retail casinos that previously offered sports betting were all at least an hour from New York City, and many much further. Illegal online betting continued to thrive over the last few years.

Deposit Options

New Yorkers will be able to sign up, deposit and bet all from their phones, a must for a lucrative betting market.

Competitive Prices

We're unsure how pricing will look given the 51% tax rate that will eat into operators' profits. It's possible sportsbooks start to bake in some of that cost into their odds. This was the fear in Tennessee because of its minimum hold percentage — which dictates that books must return at least 10% of every dollar wagered — but books have found creative ways to bake it into futures and parlays mainly, instead of making point spreads -120 instead of -110.

Market Coverage

New York won't be a completely open market, which does limit innovation, but nine sportsbooks — especially the biggest names in the industry — at the start is plenty for most users to line shop and find fun markets to bet. The disappointing hurdle is that the $20 million licensing fee will prevent scrappier, more unique companies from entering the market, like the low-fee betting exchanges starting to pop up in New Jersey.

Tax Rates in the Empire State Are Steep for Operators

Even as legal books, it won’t be a lucrative market for most operators like DraftKings because of the 51% tax rate on profits imposed by the state. Keep in mind, nearby New Jersey has an 8.5% tax for in-person sports bets and a 13% tax for online and mobile sports bets.

NY's 51% Tax Rate Pie Chart
 NY's aggressive tax rates limit the upside for operators, but the market is large

However, because of the massive population, cultural significance to the sports landscape and the hope (with legal backing) that the tax rate will decrease to 35% with 13 total operators in the mix, major books have wanted to be a part of the market from the beginning for its long-term potential.

In an April 2021 report on the state's fiscal budget, Thomas P. DiNapoli, the state's comptroller, asserted that the state is expected to generate $1.2 billion in gambling revenue within the next few years despite restrictions.

Lightbulb icon for tax section header How do taxes work with sports betting winnings (or losses)?

Whether you play online on a mobile device or at a physical sportsbook in New York, all sports betting winnings (and other gambling, including fantasy football) above $600 a year are taxed and must be reported. That amount could come from one big bet or smaller bets that add up to $600. The other details:

Federal Taxes

The federal tax rate on gambling winnings is 24%. When you win large amounts, the payer will often withhold 24% at the time you cash out. The payer also will provide you with a W2-G form to record the transaction. What would be considered a large amount of money? It depends on the game you are playing. The magic number for slot machines is $1,200 and it is closer to $1,500 for keno. The number goes up to $5,000 for sweepstakes, gambling pools and lotteries.

State Taxes

State taxes are dependent on your variable income, and whether you file single or jointly. The state tax rates are as low as 4% and as high as 10.9%. Here is the breakdown of the New York state tax brackets:

Tax Rate

Income if Single

Income if Married

4% $0 - $8,500 $0 - $12,800
4.5% $8,501 - $11,700 $12,801 - $17,650
5.25% $11,701 - $13,900 $17,651 - $20,900
5.9% $13,901 - $21,400 $20,901 - $32,200
5.97% $21,401 - $80,650 $32,201 - $107,650
6.33% $80,651 - $215,400 $107,651 - $269,300
6.85% $215,401 - $1,077,550 $269,301 - $1,616,450
9.65% $1,077,551 - $5,000,000 $1,616,451 - $5,000,000
10.30% $5,000,001 - $25,000,000 $5,000,001 - $25,000,000
10.90% $25,000,001 and up $25,000,001 and up

Deducting Losses

You can deduct sports betting losses, but only as an itemized deduction — foregoing the standard deduction that most people take. It may or may not be worth it to do so. Additionally, the losses you deduct can't be greater than the amount of gambling income you report. 

Example: With $2,000 in winnings but $4,000 in losses, your deduction is limited to $2,000. You can’t write off the other $2,000 you lost. 

Gambling losses claimed up to the number of winnings are classified as "other itemized deductions" on your Schedule A Form 1040 come tax time with the IRS.

We recommend bettors keep receipts and detailed records on betting activity — one of the reasons online sportsbooks are great. They're kept by default and easy to access. 

NY Sports Betting Background and Legalization Timeline

New York technically legalized retail sportsbooks as part of a voter-approved casino referendum in 2013, before the Supreme Court struck down the federal wagering ban in 2018.

The state’s first sportsbooks opened their doors in 2019 but generated a small fraction of the handle from statewide mobile wagering markets in neighboring New Jersey and Pennsylvania as well as a growing number of other states. That’s why the industry has eagerly watched New York’s statewide mobile rollout. Officials are projecting more than $1 billion in gross gaming revenue and $500 million in tax revenues annually, but reaching those lofty goals will not come without substantial work.

Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who championed the 2013 amendment that allowed for four upstate and three downstate casinos, largely resisted online sports betting. After facing dwindling revenues and rising costs from the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Cuomo unexpectedly embraced mobile sports betting in January two years ago.

However, Cuomo opposed a competitive sports betting model similar to New Jersey’s that would have allowed the state’s commercial and tribal casinos to partner with multiple sportsbook brands. He instead backed a government-bid model similar to the system in New Hampshire, arguing it would generate more revenue for the state.

Moving forward, lawmakers are hoping to reshape New York’s sports betting market back to a structure they had pushed for in previous budget talks: a model some view as much more sustainable long term.

The changes are as follows:

  • A drop from the current 51% tax rate on online sports betting to 35%, triggered by the addition of at least five more operators to the current nine-book market.
  • An even lower 25% tax rate (by 2024), triggered by adding at least two more operators (16 total).
  • A tax exemption on all revenue attributed to free play or promotional wagers.
  • First-dibs on additional licenses for two minority-owned sportsbooks.

The state generated a record $42 million in sports betting taxes in its first month alone. But already the handle (amount wagered) has dropped off as the year has progressed as many operators have pulled back hefty offers to match first deposits.

It's been a long journey pushing legal NY sports betting past the goal line. We'll bet you care more about when you can start wagering than the legal history, but here are some of the important events along the way:

Daily Fantasy Sports Deemed Legal by New York State Court of Appeals

New York's highest court has ruled that Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) are games of skill rather than games of chance, making them legal under state law.

Last March, the New York State Court of Appeals reversed two lower court decisions that found DFS were games of skill — thus in violation of a constitutional provision that prohibits gambling outside of state lotteries, horse racing and charitable bingo games.

“This is the end of the road for debate against DFS in New York,” said Daniel Wallach, founder of Wallach Legal LLC, a law firm focused on sports wagering and gaming law.

Using a test that weighs which factor — skill or chance — is more dominate when playing an “Interactive Fantasy Sports” game, the high court ruled 4-3 to uphold a 2016 law that codified the practice as a skill.

The New York Supreme Court in 2018 ruled that DFS was illegal because it ran contrary to the state's ban on gambling at the time. In its decision, the Supreme Court agreed with the state there was skill in picking a team, but DFS players "cannot control how the athletes on their teams will perform in the real-world sporting events."

The March decision likely puts an end to any legal challenges, as the U.S. Supreme Court is not likely to take up a state DFS case.

iGaming Legislation Introduced Last Year

New York state lawmakers introduced a new online casino gaming bill (S8412) on Thursday, Feb. 25, potentially paving the way for the nation’s top iGaming platform.

However, the bill is unlikely to pass on its first go-around given that it took lawmakers years to agree on online sports betting. Bill-sponsor Sen. Joe Addabbo has told The Action Network he wants to get the conversation started on online casino gaming during the current legislative session. Addabbo’s bill would tax gross revenue from iGaming at 25%, with operators paying a one-time $2 million fee to the state. A bill summary projects that New York could yield $475 million annually in tax revenue on top of $150 million in licensing fees.

Seven states are currently authorized to provide regulated, online interactive gaming, including neighbors New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Those states brought in more than $1 billion in online casino gaming revenue in 2021, plus another $120 million in tax revenue over the calendar year.
