To the editor:

It’s a great and historic day in New York for sports bettors. Governor Cuomo’s plan, which I supported when announced in January will be in the 2021-2022 state budget to be passed by legislature.

The Governor’s plan will bring in $500 million in revenue to New York State that is currently going to other states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania. These states have had mobile sports betting since 2017. The four casino operators will have skins affiliated at their establishments.

This is a win -win for New York State taxpayers.

Resorts-World Catskills and Rivers Casino will be a big beneficiary.

After years of fighting for mobile sports betting, I take great pride in its becoming a reality.
