Can I Bet on Bovada From New York?

Bovada is no longer available to new customers in New York, however, there are much better options. BetOnline  accepts customers from the Empire State and features a generous welcome bonus with a max of $1000. 18 and up welcome.  No social security number required to join


New York opened sportsbooks in casino locations within the state in 2019, but all in mostly sparsely populated regions. Mobile sports betting from businesses operating within the state of New York was only available from websites licensed outside the states until the first week of January 2022.  The in-state licensed books will not be taking bets on New York college teams.  This includes the Syracuse Orange in College Basketball.

Additionally, the tax for those sportsbooks based in New York is greater than 50%, thus making it especially difficult to offer competitive bonuses and lines. In fact, the tax on winnings is 24% federal with New York residents having 8.82% withheld for winnings over $5000.  Sites like BetOnline do not report winnings.

Bovada announced it will stop taking bets from New York residents effective June 2021, but sites like BetOnline are there to fill the void.

While Bovada is a popular website and one of the largest U.S.-facing Web gambling sites, BetOnline is an excellent alternative and just as big, if not bigger, and also more established.  

Excitement in the Air as Aaron Rodgers Could be Coming to the Jets

Packers president Mark Murphy says he's 'sworn to secrecy although it seemed like a forgone conclusion that Aaron Rodgers would be coming to the Jets.  Oddsmakers were already anticipating the move.  They gave the Jets the 8th shortest odds to win the Super Bowl at 12-1.

Green Bay is already focusing on the young Jordan Love while Rodgers has made it pretty clear he would like to play for the Jets.

This was not yet a done deal as of March 21, 2023.
