New Bill Would Allow Online Bets for Horse Racing, Sports Betting Kiosks at New York Stadiums

We’re still a month or two away from the launch of New York online sports betting, but one New York legislator is already prepping to expand sports betting opportunities in the state.

Senator Joseph P. Addabbo Jr. filed a bill for the state’s upcoming legislative session in January to bring horse racing into the online sportsbook fold, a point of action he noted would be high on his list for the next state budget.

“If someone on one of our apps can bet on the Nets, Knicks, Rangers, whatever team they want, and also horse racing at Saratoga, it will give the New York consumer a better product. I think integrating horse racing into mobile betting will be a very high priority for me,” Addabbo PREVIOUSLY TOLD ESNY.

Senate Bill S7536 seeks to allow the nine qualified sports betting operators the ability to take horse racing bets on their mobile apps.

Additionally, the bill allows sports betting operators to partner with “select affiliates” to install self-service betting kiosks at their premises for customers.

If passed, the legislation would state sports bettors to place a fixed odds bet on a horse race through one of the nine online operators. The operator would have to partner and enter into an agreement with a horse racing content provider.
