Mobile sports betting not coming to New York anytime soon Bernadette Hogan and Nolan Hicks, New York Post · June 18, 2019 at 1:11 pm ALBANY — The odds just keep getting longer. Mobile sports betting is all but dead in New York, thanks to a stalemate among top Democrats in the state Assembly that is unlikely to be resolved before the legislative session ends, The Post has learned. “There’s road block in the [state] Assembly,” Assembly sponsor Gary Pretlow (D-Mount Vernon) said. “It can’t move, the leadership is stuck on the constitutional question.” Pretlow told The Post that Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie has sided with Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has long argued an amendment to the state Constitution is needed — a three year-long process.
