BallyBet Relaunches in New York
BallyBet launched in the Empire State in July 2022, six months after the online sports betting market debuted. The platform struggled in the 12 months leading up to its decision to suspend operations in June 2023, primarily to make improvements in its sportsbook’s operating platform.
It's return marks a welcome addition to the New York betting apps landscape.
BallyBet is Back in NY
BallyBet has relaunched in New York after rebuilding its interface from the ground up behind entering its exclusive multi-year agreements with Kambi Group and White Hat Gaming, which will power and support the sports betting platform. Kambi will support the improvement and expansion of retail sportsbooks, while White Hat Gaming will provide its player account management (PAM) platform.
The New York State Gaming Commission shows that Bally’s was consistently at the bottom in sports betting revenue before the relaunch. The company plans to have more success using the new platform as it continues to roll out in additional US markets. BallyBet also operates in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio and Virginia.
BallyBet NY Promotions
BallyBet returns to the betting market with one of the more generous New York sportsbook promos for new customers of $200 in bonus bets when they make their first wager of at least $50 on any sports event with minimum odds of -200.
Players will receive four bonus bets of $50 each, which will be credited to their account within 24 hours of the bet being graded as a win or loss.
Besides the welcome promotion offered at BallyBet, it provides existing players various weekly promotions, such as the Happy Hour special on Monday and Thursday that gives players 5% reduced juice on all NBA bets placed from noon or 1 PM, respectively, until the game tips off.
