Online Sports Betting Blocked in Central New York

sports betting blocked in central new yorkA large portion of Central New York and western New York might be left out of the proposed online sports wagering initiative. There are talks that online sports betting would be blocked in Central New York because Native American tribes have exclusive gambling rights.

According to casino news reports, Governor Andrew Cuomo and state lawmakers discuss a deal that would allow online sports betting in the state. They think that revenue from the activity can help reduce the budget deficit.

However, there are concerns that the plan excluded areas where Native tribes have exclusive gambling rights. In Central New York, those areas are Chenango, Cayuga, Cortland, Lewis, Oneida, Madison, Onondaga, Herkimer, Otsego, and Oswego counties.

Blocked in Central New York

The Oneida Indian Nation has exclusive gambling rights in those counties as part of the 2013 deal with the state government. The compact included potential mobile sports betting. Also, the issue could affect western New York counties, such as Niagara, Cattaraugus, and Erie. That’s where the Seneca Nation has exclusive gambling rights. However, their compact with the state has different terms.

If you want to start a sportsbook in New York, there are some things you need to know before reading how to be a bookie tutorials. First of all, the governor and lawmakers are still arguing on how to oversee the mobile wagers.

Cuomo wants a single mobile sports betting operator in the state. He said that the State Lottery should handle it. However, lawmakers prefer opening the marketing to multiple vendors. They noted that non-tribal casinos in the state could house the servers. The news came as Sportradar partners with CBA.

It was during the discussions that the exclusive rights of the Oneida tribe emerged as a potential issue. Lawmakers address the problem by allowing Oneidas to place servers at a non-tribal casino. In exchange, the tribe could waive their gambling exclusivity. However, the governor is against that provision.
