A New Way To Bet On Sports – “PointsBetting”

PointsBetting is a new and exciting way to bet on sports. The more you’re right, the more you win. The more you’re wrong, the more you lose.

If you win by one point (or unit), you’ll take home 1x the bet amount. If you win by two points (or units), you’ll win 2x the bet amount, and so on. If you lose by one point (or unit), you’ll lose 1x the bet amount, and so on.

NY Sports Betting History – How We Got Here

New York State FlagNew York isn’t there quite yet. While sports betting is legal in the state, the wait for the online and mobile app end of things continues despite several states launching online wagering platforms in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2018 decision to repeal the nationwide sports betting ban.

July 2019 marked the first time New Yorkers could legally wager on sports (brick-and-mortar locations only). Rivers Sportsbook in Schenectady, the first place in New York state where it legally opened up for sporting events, opened on July 16.

Naturally, politicians were the first to place a sports bet. Gary Pretlow, chair of the state Assembly racing and wagering committee, placed a bet on the Seattle Mariners. Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy put his faith in the Boston Red Sox.

The conversation surrounding opening it up for online use is as heavy as ever, with Governor Andrew Cuomo taking center stage.
