    After advocating for mobile sports betting for the past three years, state Senator Joseph Addabbo marveled at the record-shattering debut that saw New Yorkers wager $1.6 billion in the first three weeks, according to the state’s gaming commission – smashing the previous U.S. record of $1.3 billion held by New Jersey.

    Now, Addabbo would like to see Resorts World New York City, in his district, get one of the full casino licenses Governor Kathy Hochul announced she would issue in New York City.

    “I think Resorts World deserves it,” Addabbo told QNS. “They’ve proven to be a great neighbor and a true economic engine in our district.”
