Official betting is settled based on data released by the league or event organizer. This can include information like game scores, player injuries, and more. It’s important to know how your NY sports betting site settles your wagers so you can hedge your bets or place additional wagers if needed. The best way to do this is to check out the sportsbook’s rules and regulations to get a better idea of how each brand handles their official betting.

In 2021, the Garden State became the second US state to roll out retail sports betting following a Supreme Court ruling that struck down a 1992 federal law (PASPA) and returned the decision-making power on legal sports gambling to individual states. The launch of online sports betting followed in May, with DraftKings, FanDuel and BetRivers joining SugarHouse as the first online sportsbooks.


The Buckeye State joined the ranks of legal sports betting in 2021, but it took a while for the online sportsbook market to get off the ground. In October, voters approved a bill that would allow for sports betting at a number of commercial and tribal casinos across the state. The online sportsbook launch followed in April of 2022, with DraftKings, FanDuel, BetRivers and PointsBet going live alongside Caesars and SugarHouse. The statewide sportsbook network was expanded to include 12 online sites in 2023. The state also offers a variety of live betting markets. These include same-game parlays that combine various lines from the same game/match for multiplied odds, as well as futures, which are wagers on competition or tournament outrights (like Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl or Novak Djokovic winning Wimbledon) or team or player props.
