New York was closing in on offering Internet poker but that appears to be somewhere in the distant future as the state has shifted away from wanting mobile/online gambling outside of casinos.  This includes with sports betting.

A hearing on the matter was scheduled for May 8, 2019.

A number of Native American casinos host live poker rooms.  The state opened four commercial casinos, three of which feature poker.

These poker rooms operate in the state:

    del Lago Resort & Casino (Waterloo, NY)
    Resorts World Catskills (Monticello, NY)
    Rivers Casino & Resort at Mohawk Harbor (Schenectady, NY)
    Seneca Niagara Casino (Niagara Falls, NY)
    Seneca Salamanca Casino (Salamanca, NY)
    Tioga Downs Casino (Nichols, NY)
    Turning Stone Casino (Verona, NY)

One can only imagine those playing have an insatiable appetite to play online.

Americas Cardroom is one of the few sites that has long served the U.S. market and is currently offering a $10 million guaranteed online tournament with a $1 million first place prize.  Americas Cardroom tends to rank as the 8th largest online poker site in the world.  It also offers a sportsbook and online casino.
