Unfortunately, you will not have the ability to bet on eSports with the FanDuel sportsbook. Looking at how the site operates in other states at this time, there is also no coverage of mixed martial arts.

DraftKings

DraftKings SportsbookDraftKings was one of the first betting sites to enter the NJ market, and they seem eager to enter New York with their association with the Del Lago Resort & Casino. Expect them to offer coverage of key markets. These will include:

One of the highlights you can expect with DraftKings is the Cash Out option. You can use it on live bets, futures, parlays, and even pre-game bets.

DraftKings is already famous for being one of the top-rated fantasy sports betting sites in the country. When online sports betting is welcomed in NY, you will be able to continue playing fantasy sports bets as well as traditional sports bets with this site.

You will also benefit from a wide array of promotions and contests, so there will surely be many opportunities to engage in wagering and come out on the winning side.

SugarHouse Sportsbook

Sugarhouse SportsbookSugarHouse is already a big name in sports betting as it operates online betting sites in other states. With the passing of legal online sports betting in NY, you can expect SugarHouse to offer an incredible betting site and even a mobile platform. The SugarHouse sportsbook in NY will be affiliated with Rivers Casino & Resort and will offer a full line of betting options.

In NJ, SugarHouse is one of the leading sportsbooks operating and when it becomes available in New York, you can be sure you will not only have access to great betting odds and markets, but you will also be able to benefit from some great promotional offers as well.

Rivers Sportsbook

Rivers Sportsbook (in Pittsburgh)If online sports betting in NY is legalized in 2019 as expected, you can be sure the Rivers Sportsbook will start operating. This is one of the four land-based locations in the state that will have a sportsbook area and will also offer online betting.

Rivers is one of the newer casinos in New York and they are already promoting their online sportsbook on the website to appeal to potential customers.

Rivers will be one of the few venues to offer sports betting at the casino, but mobile wagering will not be allowed. There is a 2013 state law in place that allows sports wagers to only be placed by those that are physically at the casino.

However, once NY offers online sports betting legally, this could all change. Rivers will be one of the first to offer an appealing online betting venue and will be ready to launch a mobile platform once it is legally allowed.

bet365

Bet365 SportsbookWhile legal sports betting laws are still being worked out, land-based casinos are lining up to prepare for the offering of sportsbooks. bet365 has already worked out a deal with Resorts World Catskills to offer online betting once it is approved by the state. bet365 will power the land venue as well as the online and mobile betting platform.

If you have ever gambled or bet online in the past, you may already be familiar with the bet365 name. It is one of the most successful companies in Europe and has entered the US market. With the possibility of NY legal sports betting on the horizon, bet365 is ready to offer a trusted online betting site. It will provide excellent odds, a variety of bet types, great market coverage, and some amazing promotional offers.

bet365 already operates some of the premier sports betting sites in the industry. The operator is notorious for offering the best streaming and in-play betting services. If you are looking for a sportsbook that will be a leader in New York, keep your eye on bet365 and you will surely benefit from a user-friendly interface, multiple bonus offers, and great handicapping.

Caesars

In preparation for online betting to become legal in NY, the Oneida Indian Nation has already struck a deal with Caesars to offer sports betting at three gaming locations. Turning Stone Resort has announced the coming launch of The Lounge with Caesars Sports.  Caesars is already offering a reputable sportsbook online in the states of Mississippi and New Jersey. As soon as laws pass, Caesars will be one of the top choices for online sports betting in the state of New York.

As you would expect, this sportsbook will be affiliated with Caesars. Therefore, it will provide you with the excellent service and support that the brand is famous for. The online sportsbook will offer coverage of all the popular US sports and professional teams. It will also allow you to place bets on games, matches, and events that take place in other countries.

Based on the NJ operating sportsbook, Caesars will be offering a handsome welcome bonus to all new members in NY when it becomes available. Unlike some of the other potential sportsbooks, the one thing that you may not like with Caesars is the lack of a cashout option. There will be no way to cash out existing bets. So, once you place them, they will have to be settled before you can receive any payouts.
