|New York City off-track betting has made a complete turnaround for more was just six years ago. As the state of New York becomes more and more involved in casino and telephone betting it only stands to wonder when the city or the state will take its proposition online.|
New York off-track betting has grown from a multimillion dollar business to a billion dollar business over the past few years. And since New York's neighbor, New Jersey, is investigating the possibility of allowing its land-based casinos to launch online. We may see a situation where America's Empire State can’t sit waiting in the wings?
One of the major issues with gambling online or on the telephone in New York City has always been the government's ability to stop illegal sports gambling on the telephone. New York's attorney general has also taken a brawny stance against online gambling and brought operators to the courts of New York. So with such powerful negative legislature against gambling on anything but horses, it may take more than a matter of economics that awaken the most powerful Mayor in the country.
