Mobile sports betting opens in New York; bet on Bills/Jets now!


Mobile sports betting has finally come to New York State and as of 9 AM local time on Saturday, January 8, you can bet on the Buffalo Bills and any other sporting event if you’re a resident.

To kick off the new options, our friends at DraftKings SportsBook are offering TWO specials this weekend you might want to take advantage of:

First, any new sign up in New York State gets to place a FREE $100 bet. Click on this link right now to sign up and claim your Benjamin Franklin!

There is also a special promotion for the Bills’ game vs the New York Jets in Week 18. If either team scores a touchdown, you’ll double your money. The last time neither team scored a TD in a head-to-head game between the two teams was 1988.

Odds/lines subject to change. T&Cs apply. See for details.

New York is the largest state in the nation to allow mobile sports betting, but it comes at a cost. Each of the operators of mobile sports betting sites, including DraftKings, will need to pay 51 percent of their revenue to the state. That’s much higher than New Jersey, which requires just 13 percent. Fans won’t necessarily see that information as they interact with the sites, though.
