The New York State Gaming Commission has approved four licensees to launch mobile sports betting as early as this Saturday, January 8 effective 9 am.

The commission announced Thursday that Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel and Rush Street Interactive "have satisfied all statutory and regulatory requirements necessary to accept and process mobile sports wagering activity."

It will be up to each operator to determine when they should begin accepting wagers based upon its capabilities and readiness.

In November the state approved nine mobile sports betting operators, the five other operators must "continue to work towards satisfying statutory and regulatory requirements necessary to launch and will be approved on a rolling basis when requirements are met."

New York will prohibit wagering on in-state schools and games that feature them, including the Syracuse Orange.  That school ranks among the most successful in college basketball.

Sportsbooks operating offshore will help fill that void, though not all accommodate residents of the Empire State.
