New York Senate passes gaming expansion bill

16 Mar 2021

The New York Senate passed a bill on Monday that would bring mobile sports wagering to the state along with more land-based casinos.

Three downstate casinos would be allowed, with one being in New York City. Bally's Corporation, Las Vegas Sands and Wynn Resorts are rumored to be pushing to be able to build a casino in New York City, according to a report in the New York Post.

To make that possible, they will have to complete casino applications by 1 July with a $500 million application fee.

Sports betting licenses could be issued to Empire City Casino and Resorts World Casino New York City, but nothing is for sure yet in that regard.

More sports betting licenses could be up for grabs for operators, as well.

“This brings us one step closer to giving people a way to responsibly, legally and safely place bets from anywhere in New York,” Senator Joseph Addabbo, who chairs the Senate Committee on Racing, Gaming, and Wagering, told Casino City. “I look forward to the productive budget negotiations with the Assembly and Governor's administration as we focus on providing New Yorkers with the best possible mobile sports betting product and a witnessing of increased revenue and educational funding, while also expanding problem gambling measures and job opportunities.

"I appreciate the efforts of my Senate colleagues and staff for all the work that produces the Senate One-House Budget, especially in terms of including mobile sports betting and the expediting process for New York State’s three unused downstate casino licenses.”
