New York Gaming Commission approves mobile betting rules
| By Daniel O'Boyle
New York State Gaming Commission has approved rules under which mobile sports betting will be conducted in the state.
The Commission approved the rules unanimously during its August 16 meeting, after making some minor changes from the rules that were published in July alongside a request for applications for providers.
The rules explain that only platforms and operators approved by the state through the request for applications process may be permitted. The licenses granted through this process will then last ten years.
Operators must display responsible gambling information prominently on their websites and have a problem gambling plan they must submit to the Commission.
