Sports betting closer to becoming legal in NY


Sports betting is one step closer to being legalized in the four commercial casinos throughout New York State.

Now that the federal government overturned a previous ruling a year ago, four commercial casinos in New York are asking the gaming commission to have sports wagering.

Those casinos include the Rivers casino in Schenectady, Del Lago, Tioga Downs, and Empire Resorts.

The state is now closer than ever before to legalizing it.

The Rivers casino plans to focus primarily on football, basketball, baseball, and golf.

It also plans on renovating this space to include multiple high definition televisions, so people can watch the games as they’re happening.
