An effort to legalize online casino games in New York died this week when legislators from both the House and Senate omitted it from their budget proposals. In the final days of negotiations, even the man who wrote the bill could see it was gaining little traction.
The licensing of three new casino projects in or around New York City has slowed considerably, to the apparent frustration of some of the operators and developers looking to start building anytime soon. And plans to expand the number of sports betting operators and to increase the menu available to sports bettors thus far have gone nowhere.
