New York was one of the first states to offer a lottery subscription service online.
Purchases may be made online only by New York State residents, and the application must be completed with a computer IP address physically located within New York State. Subscriptions may range in length from five weeks to one year. New York Lottery players may also manage a group subscription through the New York Lottery website and have their accounts credited for prizes of $600 and less.
Advance deposit wagering for horse racing is also available in New York. The New York State Racing and Wagering Board licenses and regulates online advance deposit wagering sites in the state.
In both 2014 and 2015, legislation that would license and regulate online poker was introduced in the New York Senate. The 2014 billed failed to make it out of committee, and a similar fate is expected for the 2015 bill, which proposes that operators would be taxed at a rate of 15% and for the state to cap the number of online poker operators in the state at a maximum of 10. The bill also states that operators would be able to apply for a license for a one-time cost of $10 million.
