New York‘s latest attempt to legalize mobile casino games in 2023 is on life support.
State Sen. Joe Addabbo of Queens, the man behind the longshot push to legalize iCasino games in the Empire State this year, signaled pessimism Monday morning about his effort to get his bill into the upcoming fiscal budget. Addabbo has said that such a failure would effectively kill the measure for the calendar year, barring last-minute inclusion by Gov. Kathy Hochul.
“IGaming is probably not going to be in the Senate one-house budget,” Addabbo told US Bets through a spokesman. “I’ll continue to monitor the issue during the year.”
