New York State, with over 20 million residents, will be by far the most populous state with legal online sports betting. Gambling.com Group has been preparing for New York to go live for several years, launching EmpireStakes.com in 2021. EmpireStakes.com reported through a YouGov survey, that 1 in 3 New York adults are likely to place legal sports bets once online sports betting is regulated in the state.
“It is difficult to overstate the significance of New York State going live with legal online sports betting,” said Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive Officer of Gambling.com Group. “As the largest state by population to accept legal sports bets in the U.S. to date, there is a massive opportunity for the New York market to be not just the biggest jurisdiction for sports betting in the country, but in the world. Gambling.com Group is well positioned to help operators and customers succeed in this new and very exciting market.”
“New York State allowing several sportsbooks to take legal sports bets in advance of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship and the NFL Playoffs is, without question, the single largest catalyst to regulated gambling in the U.S. since Supreme Court’s decision to invalidate PASPA in 2018,” said Max Bichsel, Vice President at Gambling.com Group. “As a resident of New York, this is an exciting moment for sports bettors to finally place safe and responsible wagers with legal sportsbooks, after years of discussion and negotiation. With passionate sports fans and some of the most storied sports franchises, we expect that the New York market will likely quickly surpass its neighbor, New Jersey, in terms of sports betting handle and Gambling.com Group is prepared to take full advantage.”
Based on the guidelines established by the New York State Gaming Commission, Gambling.com Group satisfies the necessary requirements to provide marketing services to licensed operators in the State of New York.
