NY Sports Betting: State Sees 152.2% More Bets Than Any Other State in First 12 Hours

Yesterday was a massive day for the state of New York. At 9:00 am ET, it officially became legal to place wagers with online sportsbooks in the state of New York and man did New Yorkers show out.

According to GeoComply, in just 12 hours the state of New York became the top state for sports betting in the US.

With the launch, New York eclipsed the second closest ranked state by roughly 2.5 times. Just insane numbers, and it's only the beginning for those wagering in the state of New York.

Here's how NY sports betting compares to other states around the country:

The launch in New York was expected to be big but I don't think anyone was anticipating these kind of numbers at the launch of this thing. The state had been trying to pass sports betting laws since 2016 but finally had a breakthrough in 2021 when Governor Andrew Cuomo added mobile wagering in his state budget. Finally, the long-awaited launch is official and if you want to get in on the action, check out these offers for the state of New York from the sportsbooks available:
