SUBJECT: Mobile Sports Betting in NY: A First Year Review & Its Budget Impact
PURPOSE: This hearing will review Mobile Sports Wagering’s first year in operation and its impact on the New York State Budget.
On November 8, 2021, the Gaming Commission authorized nine operators to run mobile sports wagering in New York State. As of the end of October of this year, it has generated $542 million in taxes, and $200 million in licensing fees for a total of more than $740 million in revenue, most of which is for the support of New York’s education system. As the first year of mobile sports wagering implementation comes to an end, the committees are interested in examining the overall economic impact that mobile sports wagering will have on the New York State Budget.
