It has been announced today that a new online sportsbook is being launched in New York by gaming giant BetMGM.
The new sportsbook will go live on Monday 17th January 2022 and marks a historic milestone in both NY and BetMGM’s history.
BetMGM is one of the largest operators of online betting and gaming sites in the US and is now opening up its online and mobile offering to bettors in New York, who will join other US states where the operator is active, including Nevada, New Jersey, West Virginia and Pennsylvania among others.
The operator, an official sports betting partner of the Rangers, the Knicks and Madison Square Garden Arena, is looking forward to welcoming new betting and gaming enthusiasts from New York who will be keen to engage in unique gambling experiences already being enjoyed by residents of other active states.
From this coming Monday, residents of NY will be able to legally bet online at BetMGM via the official website online or by downloading the operator’s IOS or Android app.
As an advocate of responsible betting and gaming, BetMGM is integrating a series of tools and resources that will help guide and educate bettors on their new online betting journey at the operator’s site.
New York is one of the largest and most densely populated states in America with a popular of almost 20 million residents, many of which will be keen sports and betting fans, making this a move with massive potential for BetMGM, which now joins competitor sportsbook sites Draft Kings, FanDuel and Caesars Sportsbook already active in the state.
Adam Greenblatt of BetMGM commented on the launch and outlined what it means for NY sports fans:
With today’s monumental news, we’ll now be able to fully activate our relationships with MGM Resorts’ Empire City Casino and Madison Square Garden. We look forward to offering customers in New York unique experiences that they can’t access on any other platform.
A huge thank you to the New York Gaming Commission as well as to our entire BetMGM team who have worked tirelessly to bring this to fruition.
