Which Sports-Betting Apps Have Been Approved in New York? See the Full List – Sports Betting Dime

Posted: January 3, 2022 at 2:33 am

New Yorks online sports betting industry has been on the cusp of commencing for what feels like an eternity. As the calendar turns to 2022, it can truthfully be said that the start of online sports betting in NY is only weeks away (likely three, and no more than four, barring unforeseen setbacks).

While the landscape of online sports betting in New York is sure to change over the next several years, the list of sports-betting apps that will be available to New Yorkers at the outset has been settled.

As shown in the table, the list of approved sports-betting apps is nine deep. It includes many of the household sportsbook names (like BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel) but doesnt include other major players (like Barstool Sportsbook, Bet365, and Fox Bet)

In the limited time since online sports betting has been legal in parts of the US, FanDuel Sportsbook has established itself as a major player in nearly every marketplace. With headquarters in New York and New Jersey, FanDuel sportsbook is set to excel in New York.

The FanDuel app can be downloaded from the App Store for Apple users or Google Play for Android Users. It is already available to customers in neighboring Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, along with Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan,, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

DraftKings and FanDuel will forever be tied as the OGs of the fantasy-sports world. The fact that both made their move to online sports betting at basically the same time only adds to the ties that bind these two.

So it should come as no surprise that, with FanDuel opening up shop in New Yorks online market, DraftKings will be at its side.

If theres one thing that can be deduced from Caesars recent advertising push, its that they have their corporate eye on taking a big bite out of New York.

The sportsbook cast New Yorker JB Smoove as Caesar in its latest advertising campaign, and big-time New York sports fan Halle Berry as Cleopatra.

Of course, with BetMGM bringing on Jamie Foxx as the face of its brand, there is going to be ample silver-screen competition for every New Yorkers attention.

Stay tuned to SBDs New York sports-betting page for all the latest news on sports-betting in the Big Apple and beyond.

The Transfer Window is Open: Three Spectacular Moves That Can Take Place in… – OnlineGambling.com

Posted: at 2:33 am

Clubs from the biggest leagues in Europe can now buy and sell players again. For a month, rumors will invade football, as fans around the world will be waiting for their clubs to act.

Online Gambling analyses the top three moves which can take place until the end of Jan. involving players who run out of their contracts in June 2022.

Even though the players wish was to extend his stay at Camp Nou, talks between the Catalan club and Dembeles agent on a new contract did not go as planned. According to TV3 in Barcelona, Moussa Sissoko, the man who represents Dembeles interests, asked for a salary of $34 million gross per season for his client. Dembele also wants bonuses for the number of matches played and a $34 million renewal bonus, while Sissoko demanded a commission worth $18 million.

Barcelona found these terms impossible to accept given their financial situation, so Dembele seems to be on his way out this year. The 24-year-old Frenchman will be out of contract in the summer, but Barcelona will look to cash out in January. Chelsea, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Juventus, PSG have all been recently linked with a move for Dembele, who cost Barcelona $165 million in 2017, when he moved from Borussia Dortmund.

Newcastle United, who would like to make Dembele their statement-transfer after the Saudi takeover last year, are at +600 to sign him.

The Argentine did not play as much as he wanted to this season. Icardi lost focus following his soap-opera relationship with wife and agent Wanda Nara, with Paris Saint-Germain allowing him a mid-season leave to sort out his personal stuff. The French giants are open to him switching clubs in Jan. Juventus is the most likely destination for Icardi, who impressed at Inter and Sampdoria in Serie A before going to Paris in 2019.

Juve would be looking to pay a loan fee worth $3 million, then have an option to buy next summer for $40 million.

Icardi, 28, was the subject of a $55 million transfer in 2020, following a successful one-year loan from Inter. The striker is at -125 to join Juventus this month, with a move to Newcastle at +1,000 and a deal with Tottenham at +1,600.

That would really be something for the Canadian club. Toronto FC are pushing to seal a deal for Napoli and Italy star Lorenzo Insigne. They are ready to pay him a $13 million yearly contract until Dec. 2026. A further $5.1 million could be added each season depending on performance-related clauses in Insignes contract.

According to Italian transfer market specialist Fabrizio Romano, negotiations have reached the final stages. Insignes transfer will not demand the payment of a transfer fee. He will be able to sign his contract now and join Toronto over the summer, once his deal with Napoli runs out at the end of June.

Insigne, 30, scored 10 goals in 53 caps for Italy, also winning the European Championship last year. At club level, he spent more than 10 years with Napoli, netting an impressive 114 goals in 414 games for the Partenopei.

Longtime Senator Harry Reid, Key Voice in Gaming Legislation and Expansion, Dies at… – OnlineGambling.com

Posted: at 2:33 am

Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid died Tuesday after a four-year battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 82.

Reid began his political career in Nevada, starting in the state assembly before becoming Lieutenant Governor in 1971.

In 1977, he took on the role of Chair of the Nevada Gaming Commission. In that role and in that era he often battled organized crime, even once becoming the target of a car bomb. That would be the start of a career that frequently placed Reid at the center of debates over gaming policy, both in Nevada and on a national level.

In 1983, Reid entered Congress, joining the House of Representatives from Nevadas 1st district. In 1987, he would become a Senator representing Nevada, a position he would hold until his retirement in 2017. He was the leading Democrat in Congress from 2005 through the end of his career, serving as Senate Majority Leader for the Democratic majority between 2007-2015, and as Senate Minority Leader on both sides of that tenure while Republicans controlled the Senate.

Reid worked on a variety of issues that were important to him throughout his time in Congress, from environmental conservation to the defense of programs like Social Security. Throughout his long career, he also helped shape decades of gambling policy.

From his days as chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission to tenure as Majority Leader, Senator Reids impact on Nevada and the gaming industry is unparalleled. He was the ultimate gaming champion, American Gaming Association President and CEO Bill Miller said in a statement. Im grateful for having known the Senator throughout my career in Washington, DC. Without a shadow of a doubt, Senator Reid was one of the sharpest, most effective political minds to ever enter the arena.

Reid wasnt always on the side of gaming expansion, particularly when it went against the interests of his home state. In 2015, he spoke out against the explosion of the daily fantasy sports industry, pushing for regulation of what he considered a new form of gambling.

Fantasy sports is the worst of the worst, Reid once told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. I know people have fun playing, good luck to them. But it should be controlled and there should be some enforcement.

Reid also opposed the expansion of online gambling, supporting bills that would limit states to offering online poker or even outright banning all internet betting. He also opposed the expansion of sports betting, something Nevada held a virtual monopoly on until the Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018.

On balance, however, Reid supported the gaming industry, provided it conformed to regulation and government oversight. Beyond his efforts in the world of gambling, other prominent politicians remember Reid for his strength and effectiveness as a legislator, along with his assistance in building their own careers.

You were a great leader in the Senate, and early on you were more generous to me than I had any right to expect, former President Barack Obama wrote in a letter prior to Reids death. I wouldnt have been President had it not been for your encouragement and support, and I wouldnt have gotten most of what I got done without your skill and determination. Most of all, youve been a good friend.

Reid is survived by his wife, Landra, as well as five children and 19 grandchildren.

Visually, Pizazz is what you can expect from a modern site, with a slick design and intuitive navigation. You can access any game easily, and it works perfectly on desktop and mobile.

If youre new to Pizazz, youll be delighted to learn you can get a Bingo Bonus, free Bingo Tickets, and free spins using a promo code on your first deposit. Unfortunately, this is the only offer they have at the moment, but the site is pretty recent, so we can expect more promotions in the future.

At Pizazz, you can deposit using the standard methods, like PayPal, debit cards, and Paysafecard.

Plenty of special rooms, such as Deal or No Deal bingo, Rainbow Riches bingo, and Buzz Bingo Blast 36-ball Deposit minimums starting at just 5

If youre a bingo enthusiast, you have probably heard of Buzz Bingo. Similar to Mecca Bingo, Buzz has land-based bingo clubs throughout the country. They are regulated by the UK Gaming Commission.

The site uses the same design youre used to if youve ever played: a simple yet effective white font on a flashy red background on the main page, with each category having its separate colour. The fact that each category has its own colour allows users to always know where they are on the site.

Buzz Bingo greets new players with a bonus on bingo, the Rainbow Riches slot, and club bingo vouchers after an initial deposit.

The accepted payment methods are the traditional debit cards, Apple Pay, PayPal, and Paysafecard. Unfortunately, no Wallet options are available at the moment, but the minimum deposit is only 5.

Branded and in-house bingo games Excellent bingo bonuses are available No fees applicable to bingo players

The Sun Vegas is part of the group that owns the famous tabloid, The Sun. They are licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, which makes them reputable.

Their selection of games is vast, and they offer branded games, like The Goonies slot and even in-house games such as The Sun Slingo.

If you stick around with them, you may also benefit from their loyalty system, which rewards players with points for every game played. These points can then be exchanged for real cash.

The Sun Vegas welcome package grants players a deposit match bonus on their first deposit, as well as free spins.

Regarding banking options, The Sun Vegas offers fewer options than some other sites. However, the essentials are still there, with debit cards, Paypal, Skrill, and Paysafecard, and you wont have to pay any fees to deposit or withdraw your money.

20 bingo rooms with different themes Branded bingo content based on TV shows Ongoing offers and promotions, like the Session Bingo promotion

Created in 2011, Fabulous Bingo is another bingo veteran on our list. They offer 20 bingo rooms with six bingo variants. Some rooms have themes like the Age of Gods room or the Deal or No Deal room, based on the famous TV show by the same name.

They also provide over 600 high-quality slots from trusted developers such as NetEnt, Microgaming, and Playtech.

Fabulous Bingo has a fantastic welcome bonus. When players make their first deposit, they get bonus money to play bingo games and free spins to play slots.

They also have weekly and monthly promotions, such as the Double Loyalty Points every Sunday and Wednesday where you receive more for playing bingo.

Fabulous accepts debit cards, Paysafecard, Moneybookers, and Skrill. The minimum deposit amount is 5, and you can withdraw instantly, without worrying about any fees.

Yes, they do. You can play with real money on all the sites on this list, as theyre all licensed and considered legitimate online casinos.

However, we recommend looking for the banking methods that suit you to make sure youll get the fastest payouts without fees.

A live game is any game you play with real humans in real-time, and its often available for a limited period of time.

It can be a wheel of fortune or classic bingo, but it always has a real host, and theres a number of seats available. The rules are the same, but it may be more convenient for people who like the feeling of being in a club, but dont have the time or a place they can access easily.

Without a doubt, its only a matter of luck. Bingo is a pure chance game with no talent or strategy involved, and the winners are chosen at random from the numbers called.

Everyone who participates has a chance to win, and the majority of regular participants receive a fair portion of the rewards.

This is dependent on a number of things, including how much you want to pay to enter and whether you want a quick game or one that takes a little longer. As a result, there isnt a definitive answer to this question.

Most bingo sites offer a large number of different games to choose from, so we recommend playing them all and then selecting which ones you enjoy most.

The fundamentals of bingo are much the same whether you play live or online. However, there are a few distinctions in the overall experiences.

Both have advantages, but we believe that playing online is the better option because its more convenient and accessible to everyone at any time.

Independent regulatory bodies evaluate the software of trustworthy bingo sites, ensuring that the outcomes of each game are really random and that the odds of winning are equal to the live version of the game.

You just need to look for reputable bingo sites that hold licenses, like the ones weve selected above.

By now, you probably know which of these bingo sites is our favourite.

In case you didnt catch it, the best bingo site is Gala Bingo. The reasons are simple. It features the most extensive library, has a good site and app, and it advertises responsible gambling. This is a brand that existed even before the Internet and had its own TV channel. Gala has also won many awards over the years, and its payment methods are varied and flexible.

The close second was PlayOJO since its the best site to start with if you dont know a lot about bingo; this is thanks to its three days of free bingo. The third spot goes to Kitty Bingo, which offers an excellent user experience and a variety of promotions.

Online Poker Report – Legal US Online Poker News & Analysis

Posted: December 23, 2021 at 10:10 pm

The US online gambling industry has evolved considerably over the last few years.Online Poker Report has evolved with it.

Our mission is to promote legalization and regulation of online gambling in all its forms, and to fight against the black market and the prohibitionary policies that enable it.

Legal online poker remains a topic of focus. However, despite our name, its no longer the only thing we cover.

Online casino and iLottery

Real money online casinos are the topic we cover most frequently, along with related products such as instant online lotteries and sweepstakes casinos.

Online poker

Our original topic of focus, legal online poker is smaller now than it was a decade ago, but still relevant. It also tends to accompany online casinos, so we often cover both at once.

We tend to focus mostly on industry and legislative angles. For more player-oriented coverage, try our sister site USPoker.

Online sports betting

Online sports betting in the US is now even bigger than casinos and poker. However, our sister sites LegalSportsReport, PlayUSA and TheLines are focus on this topic exclusively and cover it more thoroughly, each from their own angle.

International markets

We are first and foremost a news source for legal, regulatory and industry news for online gambling in the US. We provide some coverage of Canada sports betting and other gambling news, as it is an important neighboring market.

To the extent that we cover international gambling news, it is mostly regulatory developments that we look at. Specifically, we look to European markets for clues as to how things might shape up in the US.

Online Gambling Is Surging, a Boon for Friendly States – GovTech

Posted: at 10:10 pm

(TNS) Pennsylvania reported a record $432.5 million in gambling revenue in November, up 48% from prepandemic numbers two years ago and the eighth straight month of elevated revenue following the widespread rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.

Almost all of the growth over the last two years has been in new online forms of gaming, including such casino games as slots and blackjack, and also sports betting. Online gaming and sports betting were authorized under a 2017 expansion of Pennsylvanias gaming law.

Retail revenue from brick-and-mortar casinos slot machines, table games, and in-house sportsbooks was up only 3.6% since November 2019. Four new casinos have opened in the last two years, so the slightly larger revenue is now spread among 16 properties, including three mini-casinos, up from 12 casinos operating in 2019.

Across Pennsylvania, slot machine revenue is down 2% from two years ago. But at Harrahs, slot revenue was down 32% from November 2019, and at Rivers Philadelphia, slot revenue sank by nearly 28%. At Parx, slot revenue was down 9% from November 2019.

Revenue from table games such as blackjack, roulette, poker, and craps, which is about half the money generated by slot machines, is up 11% statewide since 2019. But it fell 25% at Harrahs. Rivers Philadelphia and Parx reported increases in table games revenue in the last two years.

The New Jersey Legislature this week rushed through tax relief for the casinos that is awaiting a signature from Gov. Phil Murphy, who has indicated his support.

In Pennsylvania, in-person gaming at casinos accounted for 64% of total gaming revenue in November, down from a 91% share two years ago.

Casino revenue appears to have been impacted in several states where internet gambling is legalized Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and West Virginia, said Roger Gros, publisher of Global Gaming Business Magazine in Nevada. Michigan also launched internet gaming this year.

But Gros does not think that online gaming is entirely responsible for flat-lining casino revenue. Some casino customers may have not returned because of the coronavirus, he said. And younger gamblers whom casinos are trying to attract prefer table games over slot machines.

I dont think its really bad news for casinos because it really does diversify the revenue that they get, he said. If, God forbid, theres another pandemic lockdown, theyll still have revenue coming in through the online side.

The November gaming numbers also do not reflect any impact that the omicron variant may be having on casino traffic. Gros said Las Vegas hotel reservations for New Years Eve are strong. I dont think its impacting anybody so far, he said. People are just tired of it, and who knows what this omicron thing is doing when it comes to how severe it is.

The addition of online gaming has upended Pennsylvanias ranking of casinos by revenue source, which Parx Casino has led for years. Parx still generates the most revenue from brick-and-mortar operations.

But when online revenue is included, the list is topped by Hollywood Casino at Penn National, whose online gaming platform is operated by DraftKings, followed by Valley Forge Casino Resort, which has formed a partnership with FanDuel. DraftKings and FanDuel are the dominant sports-betting operators, and also offer casino gaming.

Most of the growth in Pennsylvanias gaming activity can trace its roots to the states sweeping gaming-expansion legislation in 2017, which created mini-casinos and allowed sports betting and betting online and on video terminals at truck stops. The credit-rating agency Moodys Investors Service said at the time that the new betting options were likely to cut into casino business.

While the state finances may benefit from this bill, it is less clear to what extent existing operators in the state will actually benefit, Moodys said in a 2017 report.

Indeed, Pennsylvanias state coffers have experienced robust growth in tax revenue from the upsurge in gaming. Pennsylvania generated $171.9 million in tax revenue in November from gaming, up 44% from pre-COVID November 2019.

In the last 12 months, Pennsylvania has captured $1.8 billion from gaming taxes, some of which is channeled to local governments.

Tricky Situation With NY Politics And Online Gambling – STL.News

Posted: at 10:10 pm

(STL.News) New York is about to join many other US states that recently legalized sports betting. When Super Bowl 2022 comes around, those all over the Empire State will be able to wager on the big game using betting sites and sportsbook apps. However, gambling enthusiasts in NY might be surprised to find a suspicious lack of casino games like slots and blackjack. Thats because those arent allowed outside of casinos. New Yorks lawmakers are divided on the subject of gambling, and everyone in the state will feel the results.

At this current time, NY gambling laws state that bets must happen in a casino. In February 2022, online sports betting will be deemed lawful. For now, this limits the action to upstate facilities, which is especially odd for the state as it cuts off one of the biggest cities in the world. NYC residents will be able to get in on the sports action; BetMGM has a deal with Madison Square Garden to offer betting kiosks and booths during sports games played in the stadium. Those looking to bet online will be able to use apps from FanDuel, DraftKings, Bally Bet, BetMGM, Caesars, WynnBET, Empire Resorts, PointsBet, and BetRivers. But thats just for sports. Casino games are still a no-go for online play.

Meanwhile, states like Michigan and Arizona are raking in the cash from their fully legal betting and casino systems. Betting in New York has been lagging behind these eager states thanks to division in the government. While many key figures have pushed for statewide gambling, others feel that its too much. Poker, horse racing, and sports were able to slide in thanks to old laws and their widespread adoption elsewhere. But a sizable number want casino games to stay in the casino, and for now, their voices are the loudest. Even sports betting was a battle at the Governors level, ending in a hard push to include it in the 2022 state budget.

As such, sports betting will be the only type of online gambling allowed in New York. It remains to be seen what will happen in future debates as NY has seen a sudden change in Governer. The former was all for sports betting and actively worked to make it happen, but who knows what the next administration will have to say? As for poker, it is allowed on a technicality thanks to global poker sites. Winners earn money as giveaways which muddies the definition enough to not count as gambling.

Until February, New Yorkers will have to travel upstate or to Atlantic City to hit up casinos and place bets. This is something NYC residents are used to, with Atlantic City weekend trips being something of a light vacation. This is sure to change when the sports betting laws hit and gambling enthusiasts are free to bet from their phones. While this wont beat the luxury of an Atlantic City weekend, it is sure to change the financial and social landscape of the Big Apple. NYC is poised to become a huge gambling earner, maybe even enough to rival Atlantic City and Las Vegas.

New York has the potential to become one of the largest gambling hubs in the US. But the real question is if the lawmakers even want that. Many dont, which has led to NYs unique situation of allowing sports betting and nothing else. While the issue is closed for the rest of this year, and probably 2022 since the budget is already decided, there might be hope for reemergence on a future ballot. NY is a place of constant change, especially the city, so nothing is ever truly off the table.
