Local News

Get ready to place your bets on your favorite sporting team, sports betting may soon be coming to Tioga Downs.

The casino is looking to bring FanDuel Sportsbook, a company that’s allowed gamblers to bet on sports online.

The only hurdle right now is stalled legislation In the New York State Legislature to allow for on-site sports betting.

“They were hoping to have something on the table before they broke in June, but now they’ve broken for the summer and then they’ll have to talk about it again in the fall,” Jim Weed, Tioga Downs Marketing Manager, said. “It’s down the road, but we’re hopeful that it’s happening and moving forward.”

Tioga Downs only has horse-betting in addition to its casino games. FanDuel is already open at the casino’s Medowlands location in New Jersey.
