Sports Betting Off To A Booming Start In New York

As of 9 AM on Saturday, January 8th, 2022, the online gambling gates opened wide for New York sports bettors. After a lengthy legislative process, the masses were finally able to take to their computers and mobile devices to place exciting bets. And, despite being the most recent state to legalize gambling, New York may already be the biggest sports betting market across the entire USA!

New York on Track for Legal Super Bowl Bets

The bill to legalize online sports betting in New York State passed in November 2021. However, no legal online betting has taken place in the state since. Logistical issues have delayed the launch of this brand new market. However, the good news for residents of NY is that it seems things are finally ready for the launch. Bettors and operators are now anticipating a launch in the coming weeks. That’ll be just in time for online sports betting to be live for the Super Bowl.

Michigan Breaks Betting Records

Online sports betting is becoming more and more popular, and Michigan’s betting handle only proves this trend. Michigan sportsbooks handled a record wagering amount through some of BestAppBet’s top-rated sportsbooks. $478.3 million, to be exact. This is not only a huge number but a massive proportion of the state’s whole gambling handle. Online sports betting is clearly the most popular way to wager in MI.
