NYS Gaming Commission approves sports gambling rules

The rules now go up for public comment for the next 60 days.

After a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year cleared the way for states to legalize sports gambling, New York has a tentative set of rules to regulate it.

The state gaming commission approved regulations that would govern betting at four private upstate casinos.

The rules include a ban on online betting -- you would only be able to bet in person.

This goes now to a public comment period for the next 60 before it gets final approval. That means the earliest it could start is April.
