Is PointsBet Legal in NY?
Last Updated: January 25, 2022
PointsBet is now legal and operating in New York following full approval from the state's regulator.
On January 25, 2022, PointsBet became the sixth online sports betting operator to go live in New York.
Back in November 2021, PointsBet was part of a successful joint bid to enter the New York sports betting market, one that saw fellow operators Caesars Sportsbook, WynnBET, Resorts World, Rush Street Interactive, and primary applicant Kambi all gain access to the New York betting market as well.
The New York State Gaming Commission awarded PointsBet its license to operate back in November 2021, with the goal of launching its betting services in NY before Super Bowl LVI on February 13, 2022, which happens to be the most popular sports event to bet on in the US. With its NY launch on January 25, 2022, PointsBet was able to meet that goal with plenty of time to spare.

When Will PointsBet be legal in New York?
*Update: January 25, 2022*
New Yorkers don't have to wait any longer to use PointsBet! PointsBet launched in New York on January 25, 2022, well ahead of their goal to launch before Super Bowl LVI on February 13, 2022.
What took PointsBet so long to launch in NY?
There were certain logistical hurdles to overcome before online sports betting was officially launched in New York. More precisely, there was work to be done to guarantee that the commercial casinos that house the betting companies' servers had the necessary infrastructure to do so.
The final roadblocks were thankfully sorted out well ahead of schedule, which allowed the New York State Gaming Commission to give the green light for online sports betting to begin on the morning of January 8th, 2022. Since then, five of the nine operators in New York have received the approval to begin accepting wagers online.

About PointsBet NY
PointsBet New York
PointsBet is a legitimate bookmaker with operations in Australia - where the company originates - and in the US, where its sportsbook is live and legal in eight states: New Jersey, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Colorado, Michigan, West Virginia, and Virginia. New York is the latest state on the list for PointsBet, which raised the total states where PointsBet is available to nine different US states.
PointsBet’s multi-year agreement with Penn National Gaming should also eventually see the company gain access to online sports betting and iGaming markets in Louisiana, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas, and West Virginia, subject to license availability, state law, and regulatory approvals.
In addition to traditional fixed odds wagering, PointsBet offers New Yorkers a unique new way of betting with 'PointsBetting', an innovative wagering concept where winnings are determined on the accuracy of a bet and not the final outcome.
