If not Barstool Sports, there are still many more platforms to enjoy online sports betting in New York.
New York residents, don’t lose heart! The doors to the online betting world are still wide open for you.
Check out the following list of legal sportsbooks available in New York to find an array of other renowned sportsbook platforms that recently went live in NYC.
And here are some more New York sports betting sites launching soon:
The New York State Gaming Commission recently ruled out Barstool Sports from its list of legalized online gambling platforms. As per the founder of this well-known sports media company, Dave Portnoy, a high tax rate levied on gambling is one of the reasons for their bid rejection.
But this left many New Yorkers with a question: Will Barstool Sports ever arrive in New York?
Well, not now, but soon you may see Barstool Sports join the club of online bookies in the Empire state. The rejection doesn’t mean the bookmaker lost the battle. It will likely hit the New York market this year after completing all the state-based gambling legalities. Besides, the sportsbook’s popularity in other US states also ensures it won’t fail to impress the NYC gamblers once available.
