New York, Pennsylvania Online Gambling Update
Sportsbook Review's Natalie Rydstrom reports on the latest online gambling legalization news out of New York and Pennsylvania.
On Wednesday afternoon, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill legalizing fantasy sports in the big apple, bringing to an end the long-standing witch hunt led by NY District Attorney Eric Schneiderman who sensationally declared fantasy contests illegal gambling.
An update is also given on Pennsylvania's efforts to add their name to the list of states offering legal forms of intrastate gambling. The PA legislation, bill HB 2150, is arguably more exciting for sports bettors due to the 'Hail Mary' provision included that would allow PA casinos to accept sports bet in the event that it became legal federally to do so.
