Online sports betting is now legal in New York, and plenty of sports fans will be keen to see whether WynnBET is among the legal NY sportsbook. Unfortunately the picture is kind of complicated as although WynnBET is regulated by the New York State Gaming Commission, it has yet to actually launch in the Empire State.
So we’re going to take a close look at what WynnBET New York will look like once it opens its doors. Plus we’ll give you an overview of some of the legal online sportsbooks that have successfully opened for business in New York.
At the moment, there is no indication as to when the WynnBET online sportsbook might open up in the Empire State. The betting site is currently open in other US states like Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Virginia.
Looking at how WynnBET operates in these other states, it looks like it could make a big splash in New York State. This is because WynnBET likes to put on a massive welcome bonus for new customers that gives them a risk-free bet bonus worth anywhere up to $1,000 – definitely handy for all those who want to bet on the New York Jets, Mets and Giants.
Beyond this, it’s a pretty impressive sportsbook that looks equally at home in giving you competitive odds for the NBA, NHL, MLB and beyond. All of which has us hoping that it’s not too long before WynnBET opens its doors in New York. Remember that PointsBet, BallyBet, BetMGM and Resorts World also have NYSGC regulation but have yet to launch in the Empire State.
Thankfully, there are already four online sportsbooks in New York that have launched and are ready to take your wagers. These should give you plenty of practice for your sports bets while you wait for WynnBET New York to open. Here’s a look at what’s on offer:
DraftKings: Sign up to DraftKings NY for the first time and you’ll get a bonus that could give you anywhere up to $1,000 extra to play with.
FanDuel: FanDuel is a major player in the online betting scene and there’s an exclusive FanDuel NY welcome offer to prove it. This will give all new New York customers a $1,000 risk-free bet bonus. A great way to see what FanDuel is all about without worrying too much about your bets.
BetRivers: BetRivers has already proven to be a big hit in Pennsylvania and it’s doing great work right here in the Empire State. Need proof? Then just take a look at the simple yet effective welcome bonus that matches your first deposit by 100% up to $500.
Caesars Sportsbook: Not only is the Caesars brand good at casino gaming, but it’s pretty impressive at online sports betting too. Once you’ve used up your massive Caesars New York welcome bonus, you’ll find endlessly competitive odds for all major US sports. Perfect for getting a little extra when betting on the NFL playoffs!
