Bally Bet Relaunches New York Sports Betting Platform

Bally Bet Relaunches New York Sports Betting Platform
Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

After a four-month (19 weeks to be exact) hiatus, Bally Bet is back online in the Empire State.

Back in May, Bally’s Corporation announced two exclusive, multi-year agreements with Malta-based Kambi Group and White Hat Gaming to serve as Bally’s B2B online sports betting (OSB) and platform providers.

That transition commenced in June as Bally Bet shut down service in the state on June 30. The process was completed this week with a quiet relaunch of their mobile sports betting platform in New York. Bally is a long-standing casino brand but there are no New York online casinos.

Since partnering with Kambi, this is the sixth online launch across U.S. markets. The other states are Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Ohio and Virginia. Bally Bet plans to launch in more states are in the future.

“We’ve been pleased with our partnership with Bally’s thus far and look forward to continuing the roll-out of Bally Bet with Kambi’s leading sportsbook technology,” a Kambi spokesperson told NYCasinos.com via email.
