Joseph Addabbo, New York State Senator

As mobile sports betting went online in New York this month, State Senator Joseph Addabbo can take a victory lap, for it was in large part his pressure and direction that saw the passage of the new regulations. The Senator sat down with Gaming America to speak about the new landscape for betting in the Empire State. It's not time to rest on his laurels though. The Senator's mind is already on the future: bringing online casinos into the state and properly awarding the three downstate casino licenses that are up for grabs.
