The First Online Sports Bets in New York

Where Did People Bet?

At precisely 9:01 a.m., the first bet on FanDuel was placed. This was a $21 stake on the Cowboys-Eagles game. According to a tweet from DraftKings, their first bet was only placed a minute after opening in New York state.  At 9.01 am, a 6-team cumulative sequence of wagers was the first mobile bet in New York. Another bet was made on the Chiefs-Broncos game (reportedly around $500) through the Rush Street site. According to Caesars Sportsbook, their first wager on the Caesars app was reportedly a daring parlay, with a player investing $20 to win $233.16 on selected European soccer matches.

On Saturday, the casinos declined to specify how much money was earned or lost in New York’s online sports betting pools. However, the state Gaming Commission has declared that betting activity data will be disclosed periodically.
