NY Sports Betting Deal Struck Between Caesars Entertainment And Oneida

NY Sports Betting Deal Struck Between Caesars Entertainment And Oneida

A Native American tribe located in upstate New York is anticipating NY sports betting legislation being passed in the near future and is making moves early to get in on the action.

The Oneida Indian Nation announced its partnership with gaming giant Caesars Entertainment, which will operate NY sportsbooks in three area casinos. The plan is that NY sports betting players will be able to visit “The Lounge with Caesars Sports” at upstate New York locations Turning Stone Casino, Yellow Brick Road Casino and Point Place Casino at some point in 2019.

The deal will commence pending approval from the National Indian Gaming Commission and New York state finally issues regulations for legalized NY sports betting. The US Supreme Court struck down a federal sports gambling ban in May 2018 and the neighboring state of New Jersey is already knee-deep in sports wagering. Since that time, New York has been working on rules to regulate the industry at the upstate casinos.

In 2013, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo approved the opening of four new casinos and carefully included language that would allow each to offer sports gambling in the event the federal law changed. Cuomo’s administration is also looking into expanding its market into the online space, paving the way for the introduction of NY sports betting apps.

Oneida Could Set NY Sports Betting Precedent

A prevailing thought is that the Oneida nation could be providing the blueprint for partnerships between gaming leaders and Native American tribes wanting to install NY sportsbooks.

As it stands, the Oneidas, Senecas and Mohawks (all tribes which operate casinos in upstate New York) would be able to offer betting at NY sportsbooks upon approval for operations. This results from pacts signed by both the tribes and the state of New York.

The Senecas and Mohawk tribes could be next to find partnership deals with gaming companies in anticipation of New York’s inevitable next step in sports gambling. The Seneca Nation has also remained mum amid rumors of sports betting plans at several casinos located in Western New York.

What Comes Next For NY Sports Betting?

The year 2019 looks to be a busy one for New York and NY sports gambling as Cuomo and NY lawmakers prepare to spread sports betting across the state.

Queens Democrat Joseph Addabbo, the Senate’s gaming and wagering committee chairman, has already pre-filed a bill to revive the issue of a regulation and tax system for NY sports betting.

If approved, in-person and NY online sports betting on professional and college sports would be allowed at casinos and online operators. Like in New Jersey, NY sports bettors would have to be within the physical borders the state in order to play. Operators at Native American casinos have opposed the measure of including NY sports betting apps and online wagering on sports due to the potential effect on geographically-motivated exclusivity deals currently in place.
