Although Bet365 was not included in the first batch of approved sportsbooks to initially join NY online sports betting, its presence in the area is noticeable.
You have surely seen the commercial. Every New York sports fan, especially those who regularly watch MSG Networks, has seen Bet365’s push into the market. Jesse Pinkman, otherwise known as Aaron Paul in reality, firmly believes that Bet365 is “America’s Favorite Sportsbook.”
Bet365 wants to be a major sportsbook player in New York when legal NY online sports betting finally goes live on Saturday, Jan. 8, 2022, at 9 a.m. ET. However, the company didn’t receive the initial call it sought.
Bet365 will have to wait its turn, as the sportsbooks that will enter the NY online sports gambling market are already known
On Monday, Nov. 8, 2021, the state made the most substantial NY online sports betting decision to date. We now know which sportsbooks will be available once NY sports gambling becomes an online reality:

The New York Gaming Commission made it official when members unanimously approved FanDuel, DraftKings, BetMGM, Bally Bet, Kambi, Caesars, Wynn Interactive and PointsBet as online sports betting providers.
“New York has the potential to be one of the largest sports betting markets in the U.S. and BetMGM is particularly well positioned to become a leader in the state given the strength of the M life customer database, close proximity of Empire City Casino to support our omni-channel strategy, and parlaying our already leading positions in nearby states,” said Adam Greenblatt, CEO, of BetMGM in a release.
The commission also approved FanDuel, DraftKings, BetMGM, Bally Bet, Kambi, Caesars, Wynn Interactive, PointsBet, Rush Street Interactive and Resorts World as online sports betting operators.
This leaves the likes of bet365, Barstool and Fanatics on the outside looking in for now.
