How to sign up for NY sports betting apps

Users can access multiple sportsbooks on their desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. The books that will are available include:

In total, nine sportsbooks will be able to operate in New York, but they will be rolled out as each is given the green light by the New York State Gaming Commission. As soon as those dates are known, TheLines will let you know. The other five books include BallyBet, BetMGM, PointsBet, Resorts World and WynnBet.

Bettors must be at least 21 years of age and located within the state lines of New York (residency not required). The books will verify your identity and age, and geolocation tracking will be used to verify your location within the state borders.

Which New York Sportsbook Should I Sign Up For?

Now that NY sports betting apps will be available, should you sign up for just one? Two? All four? It’s most beneficial to sign up for every sportsbook you can in order to capitalize on promotions, especially for new users.

Most books will issue your first bet risk-free, up to a certain amount (generally up to $1,000). With the NFL playoffs on the horizon, take advantage of these deposit matches and the myriad of promotions books will be rolling out in the coming weeks.

TheLines will be sharing any and all promotions, so be sure to check back Jan. 8 so you don’t miss a promo!

Another benefit to signing up with multiple books is shopping for the best lines. Not every book offers the same odds, and just a few minutes of looking (or visiting TheLines where we lay them all out for you) can make your bets more profitable.

The manufacturer of your mobile device doesn’t matter. Head to the App Store (iOS) of the Google Play Store (Android) and download the book’s apps you’d like to use. Sportsbooks typically restrict users to just one account per book, so signing up with DraftKings, FanDuel, and Caesars individually will be the best strategy here.

What Information Do I Need To Sign Up For NY Sports Betting Apps?

Signing up is incredibly easy and free. The books will ask for some information including your legal name, date of birth, email address, mailing address, phone number, and the last four digits of your social security number. You must be 21 to register.

You don’t have to be within New York’s state borders to sign up. However, you’ll need to be in the state to place your bets. You can still view odds and use the app’s other features from other states.

Creating an account is quick and easy, just like signing up for any other app.

Cash in on NY Sportsbook Bonus Offers

New users are eligible for promotions at most NY sports betting apps. Typically, they offer match bonuses or free bets with your first deposit. Be sure to familiarize yourself with promotions tabs and TheLines, where we’ll be sharing the best promotions with NY’s launch. Sign up for emails (we get it, you don’t want to flood your inbox) to stay on top with new promotions.

Not all promos are exclusively for new users, but you’ll want to capitalize on the ones that are for new accounts. Thoroughly review all of the sign-up bonus offers at each state to choose the one that best suits you.

You’ll be able to deposit funds to your account with various methods, including:

  • Credit cards
  • Debit cards
  • Linking a bank account
  • PayPal

Once you’ve signed up, taken advantage of the sign-up promotion, and make your first deposit, it’s time to get rolling! Here at TheLines, we’ll be helping you through each season with the resources bettors need, including the best available odds across legal New York sportsbooks.

Of course, the most important rule of all is to bet responsibly.
