Not all bookmakers are created equal, and some have better offers than others. For example, some platforms offer different odds formats, which makes them easier to understand. Other betting sites offer a signup bonus. Make sure you compare these bonuses to determine which is the best value for your money. After all, you want to win, right?
New York State is set to introduce legal online sports betting later this month. The state was the first in the US to legalize sports betting, and it still holds the distinction of being the first. The state also has a long and storied history with sports betting. In fact, it was the first state to legalize online sports betting. During the first decade of its legalization, it had the monopoly of online sports betting in the US.
