The Sports Betting USA conference was held on Tuesday in New York where two Democratic lawmakers pushed for legal sports betting. They said they will try to put a provision in the state budget allowing mobile sports betting when the Legislature convenes in January. But inspite of the push from the lawmakers in favor of letting people bet on their phones or laptops New York is not likely to approve statewide mobile sports betting anytime soon. The sports betting remains restricted to in-person wagers at upstate casinos.

According to Americasino, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has questioned whether such betting is constitutional. State Sen. Joseph Addabbo Jr. has said that it is no more a question of if rather when it is going to happen. People all over NewYork want to bet. They arent looking at driving 2 hours in their car to upstate but they are doing it now getting in the car and going over the bridge to New Jersey.

New York might offer statewide mobile betting remains anyone’s bet as with 80% of New Jersey sports betting revenue coming via smartphones or laptops, it is quickly becoming the industry standard in the U.S. Addabbo and Assemblyman J. Gary Pretlow said that a report on the pros and cons of mobile sports betting was supposed to have been released within the next few weeks but it has been delayed until April. Pretlow said that he knows the report will be positive- “It’s going to say, ‘Do it’.”
