Sports bettors in New York State will be able to start mobile betting on Saturday. 

The state Gaming Commission has approved four licensed mobile sports wagering platforms to begin operating at 9 a.m. on Jan. 8. 

The four operators–Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive—have satisfied all statutory and regulatory requirements necessary to accept and process mobile sports wagering activity, according to a Gaming Commission statement. 

Five additional operators—Bally Bet, BetMGM, Wynn Interactive, Resorts World and PointsBet–are still working towards clearing those regulatory hurdles and the commission said they will be approved on a rolling basis once those requirements are met. 

Online wagering in New York is expected to bring a big windfall in revenue. In New Jersey, where sports betting began in August 2018, the business has since taken in well more than $20 billion in total handle, 90 percent of which has come from bets placed online.
