  • The BetMGM sportsbook received one of the first online sports betting licenses in the Empire State
  • BetMGM will bring their world-class digital sports betting platform to one of the biggest markets in the country
  • New York online sports betting is expected to launch in mid-January



It’s only a matter of days before online NY sports betting is set to get underway, and BetMGM will be one of the first mobile sportsbooks New Yorkers can get their hands on.

As the official sportsbook of the legendary MGM Resorts International, this premier sports betting platform is sure to be a popular choice in the Empire State.

With a reliable betting app and top-notch promos available year-round, eligible sports bettors should check out everything BetMGM NY has to offer.

BetMGM Set to Debut With the Launch of Online NY Sports Betting

Currently available in over 15 states, BetMGM New York has a ton of potential to become one of the most popular betting sites in the Empire State. New York will become the largest state with regulated online sports betting, and the huge volume of sports fans presents a ton of opportunity for BetMGM.


Shortly after being awarded an online sports betting license in New York, BetMGM signed an official partnership with the New York Knicks, New York Rangers, and Madison Square Garden Entertainment. This agreement will see BetMGM gain exclusive opportunities with these teams, along with increased visibility at Madison Square Garden.

All indications are pointing towards an online NY sports betting launch date in the second or third week of January 2022. The NFL playoffs are set to begin on January 15, and sportsbooks like BetMGM NY are no doubt eager to launch their products in time for the postseason kickoff.

BetMGM is expected to bring their most valuable sign-up promo when they launch in New York – a risk-free bet worth up to $1,000 in site credit. Make sure you take advantage of this offer if you’re an eligible new customer when BetMGM New York launches.

Either way, BetMGM New York is expected to be up and running well ahead of Super Bowl LVI on February 13, 2022.

Possible Retail Sportsbook Location for BetMGM New York

In-person wagering at retail sportsbook locations in New York has been operational since 2019. Operators like FanDuel, DraftKings, Caesars Sportsbook, and BetRivers have already established their brick-and-mortar shops in the Empire State.

While BetMGM New York has yet to confirm a retail sportsbook location, there’s little doubt they would leverage the Empire City Casino in Yonkers, NY. BetMGM acquired this property along with the Yonkers Raceway in January 2019, and they pointed to this location in their official press release announcing NY market access.

Mobile sports betting is ultimately what New Yorkers are most excited for, as it brings an unmatched level of convenience for wagering on your favorite games. Still, it will be interesting to see if BetMGM decides to establish a retail sportsbook location in New York.

Online NY Sports Betting Is Just Around the Corner

The launch of online sports betting is closer than ever in New York. Bettors are still waiting patiently to hear about an official launch date, but state officials have already confirmed it should arrive in the second or third week of January.
