New York has legalized mobile sports betting, making it the first state to do so.

Those of you who reside in New York City can now place sports wagers via mobile device. Mobile sports betting has been authorized in the state since January 8th, according to CNBC. DraftKings, FanDuel, Caesars Sportsbook, and Rush Street Interactive are all taking bets as of 9 a.m. Eastern. Legal standards have yet to be met by five of the licensed companies (such as BetMGM and WynnBet).

Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reversed course on internet sports betting, prompting the change. In his eyes, it was a chance to keep more tax money and make his state the biggest betting market in the United States of America Eilers & Krejcik, a research firm, estimates that New Jersey accounts for around a quarter of all revenue generated by internet gambling in the United States.

However, any success may take some time. Despite New Jersey’s 13 percent tax rate on casino revenue, New York’s 51 percent tax rate might keep the Empire State from claiming the lead for years. In any case, New York’s efforts to legalize mobile betting could have an impact on other states where the practice is still prohibited. New York’s efforts are certainly substantial and influential.
