Online casinos in New York, USA
Gambling at an Online Casino Real Money NY
Online gambling is not legal in the state of New York. Casino-style gambling became legal soon after the passing of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act in 1988, but to this day, there isn’t a licensed and legal online casino in New York.
As a result of the regulatory act, three Native American tribes have already opened and operate 7 land-based casinos in New York, featuring over 10,000 slots and table games. In 2013, legal provisions added up to this number and to this date, there are only 4 new casinos available to the state’s residents.
An online casino that takes New York players cannot be based in the state based on the regulations regarding such type of gambling. That being said, New Yorkers can gamble on casinos’ sites from different states that allow for such betting, or at a land-based gambling establishment by picking one of very few options.
In July 17, 2013, the Rivers Casino and Resort opened up the first retail sportsbook, and the voter referendum allowed for commercial casinos. Four of them now offer sports betting, including on-site betting.
Even though sports betting is currently available, there still isn’t an online New York casino with slots, table and card games.
