    Anyone with good insight, looks like next week might come down to the final 3 days till next year… Is there hope or should I plan for 2019?

    It’s not looking good for legislation by the end of this session. Cuomo is running for re-election so I thought he might want to get something done but he DGAF. However, the Native American casinos are taking action.

    The Oneida nation owns 3 properties in upstate CNY and they have publicly stated they’re offering betting “very soon”. While they haven’t given a date I think this means by football season. I’m not sure what the Seneca nation will do in WNY, but I expect they will follow suit. (I haven’t followed any other tribes involved in gaming.)

    If you live close to NYC it seems going to NJ would be the simplest solution for now.

    If by some miracle legislation gets done, there would be 4 non-tribal casinos statewide with sportsbooks, plus kiosk betting at all OTB & horse track operations, with mobile to come in the future.

    Or just bet offshore like everyone else. Even when most states add sports betting offshore will still be the better option.

    NJ/Delaware have 20 cent lines for baseball. Nobody in the world is sharp enough to beat 20 cent lines in baseball its not happening. You can get 6-10 cent lines offshore for baseball(-103/-103 or -105/-105). Once the leagues want their cut from all of it you could even see 25 cent lines which is straight robbery. Offshore is anonymous, way better lines, greater variety, better apps, great bonuses, etc. Many of the big sites payout same day with bitcoin. Anyone that’s excited about regulated/legal sports betting must not understand how much worse it really is.

    You also can’t get any significant money down in these books because they want income verification, information for taxes, all that. It’s a headache.

    Regarding your question. NY will have it by NFL kickoff week 1. They don’t want their money leaving the state and players/bettors going to NJ.

    There were a few casinoes that were written into law already, one of which is 45min from my house. I don’t think they have to worry about legislation but I could be way off base.

    Any of the tribal casinos in NY do not have to wait for legislation to pass, They could start immediately.
