Is sports betting legal?
Sports betting was authorized in New York during a 2013 casino referendum should the federal ban be dropped. With PASPA repealed, the New York Gaming Commission approved a set of sports betting regulations in January 2019, permitting four upstate casinos to accept sports wagers. The first wager was placed on July 16 by assemblyman Gary Pretlow.
Legal online sports betting began in New York on January 8, 2022, with nine initial licenses issued and a tax rate of 51% on mobile sports betting revenue

Is sports betting permitted online?
Yes, since January 2022.
Is there any specific legislation for daily fantasy sports?
Yes, since 2016, although it continues to be mired in legal uncertainty and some companies have chosen to remain out of the state. In November 2018, the New York Gaming Commission ceased overseeing DFS following a court ruling which said New York legislators had exceeded their authority by previously defining DFS as a game of skill.
