Happy Tuesday, everyone. It’s finally that time of year when sports betting news is slowing down, but we’re not at the slowest point yet.
Let’s be honest: Any weekend that offers the opportunity to hammer eaten hot dogs just can’t be a boring sportsbook weekend.
This coming week will (hopefully) be far from boring as well after the biggest news of last week decided to slow the process down a bit. The next step for online sports betting in new York was just one of many topics covered last week LSR podcast.
Keep an eye on @LSPReport on Twitter for any last minute updates for New York and other key states.
Top Upcoming Sports Betting News: When Will NY Release Auction Details?
the 1st of July deadline for the New York State Gaming Commission to start the mobile sports betting auction period came and went Thursday without any explanation about the situation of the process.
The delay throws a potential NFL season launch in question for New York. Bettors won’t mind that much – New Yorkers are already used to betting in New Jersey or Pennsylvania, or even with their offshore sports betting. It does mean, however, that the state potentially loses millions of dollars in tax revenue dragging its feet.
Senator Joe Addabbo Jr., one of the people responsible for legalizing online betting in New York City, was not thrilled with the delay:
âWell, the fact that our state was unable to meet its original mobile sports betting deadline to take a positive step towards recognizing additional funding for education and drug addiction is disappointing.
“I remain convinced that in the end New York will have a premium mobile sports betting product to offer its residents and compete effectively in the market.”
Will CT Lottery finally choose a partner?
The northeastern United States could be a good source of sports betting information this week, as a CT sports betting decision was also postponed last week.
the Connecticut Lotteryy delayed the choice of his sports betting partner until July 6 instead of the last Monday. It is the last of Three Mobile betting skins available in Connecticut – or at least we thought so.
Mohegan Gaming and Kambi made a surprise announcement last week when they jointly announced that Kambi would not be running the bookmaker for Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. This deal had been in effect for about two years, so the change was a bit surprising, although not entirely unexpected after recent comments from Mohegan’s management.
No one is admitting who swept Mohegan with a hefty cash offer just yet. It seems like FanDuel Sportsbook is the favorite, however, after FanDuel got his Mohegan-approved Daily Fantasy Sports license last week. DraftKings Sportsbook, in partnership for sports betting with the Mashantucket pequot, has also obtained a DFS license.
While the winning CT lottery partner may be chosen on Tuesday, the public is unlikely to find out the winner on the same day. This announcement will come once the contract is finalized and signed.
The big news from last week: Canadian one-game bets approved
CanadaFederal single-match sports betting ban will soon be banned as bill revoking it received royal assent Wednesday.
One-match sports betting in Canada will be initiated as soon as it is permitted, at least in British Columbia. The province will expand its offer of British Columbia Lottery Corporation for any day Prime Minister Justin Trudeau fixes the date of entry into force of the legislation.
Sports betting at a game in Ontario, meanwhile, might not launch before the end of the year, as it considers a competitive market.
