    The New York Gaming Commission confirmed it will forgo hearing oral presentations for New York online sports betting license bidders, which could put the timeline slightly ahead of schedule.

    Sen. Joseph A. Addabbo Jr. supported the Gaming Commission’s decision to forgo oral presentations. Anything, he said, that protects the integrity of the process and potentially helps New York reach its goal of having online sports betting at full capacity by the Super Bowl is appreciated.

    With a little faith, and a little initiative from all parties involved, licenses can be awarded by the end of the year and the first sports bets will soon follow, he said.
