    Is there any specific time when this will happen tonight? i want to watch closely..

    Both bills will be post midnight. The votes won’t be close in the assembly. It’s gonna be a blowout. Pretlow was right, so I believe in bonacic too that the senate will pass this bill. I might be up or not. It depends if golden state wins the championship tonight.

    3 day rule means vote can’t happen until 12:01 AM tonight. The most encouraging news I’d read is that the bill added in suggested provisions from Gov Cuomo’s office. If the Gov in on board that is an excellent sign!!

    Not a NYer so I haven’t been tracking closely. Is this bill making it legalized gambling or calling it a legal game of skill? Thanks in advance.

    He represents Schenectady which is soon to get a Rush Street Gaming casino. That may have a little something to do with it.

    With ANY politician, look WHERE they are representing and the reason they would vote a certain way

    N.Y DFS bill in good shape in Assembly, but there are concerns in the Senate. @DeanMurrayNYAD3 urges DFS fans to contact Senators.

    Not good…….i mean at this point, what would contacting a senator seriously do.

  • jason18801999

    So there is just this one vote left then it goes to the governor? Is majority needed or most votes?

    You should be tracking it. New York becoming dfs legal is important for all of us. Besides the fact that dfs might not survive without Ny it will also be good for the dfs Eco system.

  • jason18801999

    You seem very knowledgeable, what chance do you give this of passing?

    Find your senator and call now. They are in session but leave a message asking to support legislation tomorrow. All they ask is your name and address. Takes one minute.

    Yeah i’ve been tracking how its doing just wasn’t 100% on the wording of the bill and potential income for the states and how it could affect rake.

  • Chuky

    This is the trend in the states with casinos, one house is fine with a bill and the other has a problem so a vote is not called. Seems to be trending in that direction again. Bonacic to try and convince his colleagues one more time this morning is ridiculous. It’s obvious a lot of these dudes in the senate has casino ties. If fanduel can’t win their home state, they should forget lobbying in the states with casino presence. All those states will have the same problem. My optimism is very slim now but still hoping for a miracle at this point. – had a change of heart and just called my senator to support the fantasy sports bill

  • toxx6878

    So if the bill doesn’t pass does that force fantasy aces to pull out of NY as well?

  • depalma13

    Per CBS in New York, everyone has agreed on the bill, the Assembly, Senate and Governor. What has changed?

  • adelosa

    I know this is going to sound stupid but what if Fanduel/Draftkings just opened up a casino?

  • Chuky

    The republican senators acting the fool. Bonacic will have a final meeting with them this morning. If he does not call his bill for a vote then he doesn’t have enough. I don’t know what the hell would happen after that. Don’t know if it could end up on the omnibus bill but today is da day!

  • fcbjakub

    A week ago it was NY online poker and dfs were going to get passed, today we have nothing. NYers got punked!

    No so fast. Let’s see what happens. Pretlow says something will get done and a bill sign into law. I don’t know why he said that since he is only in the assembly.
