New York State is in position to legalize online sports gambling, after Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that he has made it a priority, along with the legalization of cannabis.
For an app like DraftKings, which is already partnered with the del Lago Resort & Casino in Waterloo and already has a physical sportsbook at that site, this news could prove to be a massive boost. The New York metropolitan area alone has nearly 13 million people, and with neighboring New Jersey raking in over $6 billion in 2020 despite COVID-19 shuttering almost all sports around the globe for two months, the Empire State would almost certainly break all types of records shortly after legalization.
What does the DraftKings app offer for online sports bettors in New York?
Obviously, DraftKings has all four of the major American sports: baseball (MLB and all kinds of other leagues around the world), basketball (NCAA, NBA, and other worldwide leagues), hockey (NHL and other world leagues), and of course, football (NFL and NCAA).
One of the sports that has really exploded in popularity in America over the last decade (and got even more popular with bettors during the pandemic) is soccer, and DraftKings has odds on just about every league you can think of: Premier League, UEFA Champions League, MLS, the list is long.
But have you ever wanted to bet on surfing? What about snooker, darts, or cycling? You can find those on DraftKings. There are table tennis, floorball, handball, golf, and MMA as well: if they play it, DraftKings probably has odds on it.
You can wager on money line, or take the point spread/puck line/goal line as well, depending on the sport. There are parlays and straight bets, teasers, proposition bets, and live in-play action, something that has taken the betting world by storm. With the old way of betting, you placed your wager, and you won, lost, or pushed. But with in-play wagering, you can wait until the game is in action, all the way until the final minutes, and place bets.
Promotions DraftKings NY
DraftKings is also known for its numerous promotions and odds boosts each day. There are 100 percent profit boosts on games each night. One recent one on the Pennsylvania app gave bettors a chance to opt-in and place a bet boost wager on the Philadelphia 76ers Brooklyn Nets NBA contest. You could place up to a $50 wager on any qualifying bet, and win up to an additional $250.
There are promotions for the casino part of the app as well.
Draftkings NY Promo Code & Bonus
The Draftkings NY is expected to give you a deposit bonus up to $1,000 on your first deposit into your account, and an extra free play on top of that. Promo code and bonus offers to be updated once Draftkings is live in NY with its sportsbook app in 2021.
What could I bet on in 2021?
How about the new-look New York Mets to win either the National League (+600) or the World Series (+1200)? Those odds dropped dramatically over the last few days, after the Mets made some stunning acquisitions. The Yankees are the second favorite to win the World Series with odds of +550, behind the defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers (+450). But the Yankees were not even the best team in their division last year, with American League Pennant winner Tampa Bay at +650 to repeat and go back to the World Series.
Just don’t bet on the New York Knicks. They have odds of +600 to just make the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs, with the no odds at -1000. But you have faith in them, you say? You can get the Knicks at +10000 to win the Atlantic Division, +25000 to win the East and/or the NBA title.
