FanDuel Launches New York Sportsbook

The other three upstate casinos who are accepting bets in New York are DraftKings, Stars Group and Bet 365.
While retail sports betting is legal however, mobile wagering has not yet been approved. Here’s a few words from Keith Wall, FanDuel’s VP Commercial Retail:
“As we continue to expand our sportsbook operations across the US, the opening of our FanDuel Sportsbook at Tioga Downs Casino Resort is a history-making moment for the FanDuel Group.”
Jeff Gural, the Chairman of American Racing and Entertainment also commented on the matter:
“Our partnership with FanDuel at the Meadowlands (in New Jersey) has surpassed expectations.
“Now legislation in New York has been passed, we look forward to bringing the fun and excitement of wagering on sports to the upstate region.”
