Two NY Lawmakers Propose Legalizing iGaming and iLottery to help Budget Deficit

Sen. Joe Addabbo and Asm. Gary Pretlow noted "The state comptroller has pegged the deficit at $4.3 billion for next year and $8 billion for 2025. Solving it will require many difficult choices, but a good first step to beat the odds is right in front of us: we can double the substantial revenue we get from mobile sports betting through the legalization of iGaming (online gambling) and iLottery (online state lottery).”
