New York mobile sports betting fails to make the cut

Mobile sports wagering has been removed from New York’s new state budget.

According to the New York Post, the $175.5bn budget will not include mobile sports betting, despite the form of wagering having previously received plenty of political support.

In January, the New York State Gaming Commission voted to approve the regulation of sports betting in the state’s four private casinos.

That regulation did not apply to mobile wagering, with many campaigners since promoting the idea in light of New Jersey’s early success in the online market.

Opposition from Governor Andrew Cuomo, however, has resulted in an omission from the state budget.

Senator Joseph Addabbo, an advocate of mobile sports betting, said: "We’re sitting on the sidelines and letting our money go out of state."

Addabbo argued $90m would have been generated through taxation and license fees; the issue is expected to be revisited by lawmakers at a later date.
