Although The BetLucky Sportsbook is currently no longer operating along the Wheeling Island Casino and Mardi Gras Casino in West Virginia, there is still a possibility of opening a BetLucky In New York branch in the near future. For a detailed review of what you can expect from BetLucky NYC and a possible BetLucky Welcome Offer which may be available with the launch read below. Keep in mind that sports betting with Betlucky is not yet possible within the State of New York.
BetLucky In New York 2019
The BetLucky Sportsbook is an online sports betting platform which has been running in West Virginia in association with the Wheeling and Mardi Gras Casinos since December of 2018. The platform is run by Delaware North, one of the leading casino gaming operators in America. The brand has also partnered with software provider Miomni as a plan to expand into additional states which now permit sports betting.
As the first mobile sportsbook in West Virginia, BetLucky is primed to take over the states online betting industry and is expected to fare well in other states such as New York, Nevada, and New Jersey, as they roll out through the US. Expect BetLucky In New York to be available within the first few months of 2019, making sure the brand doesn’t fall behind other top brands looking to enter the New York market.
Is BetLucky Legal In New York?
Although the repeal of the Federal ban on sports betting took place last year, the New York Gambling Commission has yet to start issuing licenses to sportsbooks, such as BetLucky, looking to expand into the state. It is, however, expected that BetLucky In New York along with other top sportsbooks such as DraftKings, bet365, and FanDuel will be entering the market early in 2019 if all goes well.
If the site goes live users will be required to be over the age of 21 and geo-located within the state of New York to access the BetLucky sports betting NY platform. Location setting will be required to be turned on for any device that is looking to participate in sports betting at BetLucky in New York.

Users may see their confirmed wagers in the ‘MY BETS’ section of their profile.
BetLucky Welcome Offer
While the exact details of the BetLucky Welcome Offer have yet to be disclosed by the brand for the New York sportsbook, it can be expected that the West Virginia bonus will be very similar if not exactly the same as the NY bonus. The WV BetLucky Welcome Offer currently gives new users a 2X bonus on their first bet worth up to $20. This means if you placed the first bet of $10, you would receive $20 in bonus cash. (T&Cs apply)
- Users must be over the age of 21 and be new users to BetLucky In New York.
- Users may be required to use a BetLucky Promo Code when registering to activate the BetLucky Welcome Offer.
- The bonus money from the BetLucky Welcome Offer will expire 28 days after the money was awarded to a user.
- Bonus money cannot be withdrawn from a user’s account.
- Lucky North Points will not be accumulated from any bets using the bonus cash.
Is There Customer Care At BetLucky In New York?
BetLucky in New York is expected to give the same customer care as in West Virginia. Currently, users may contact the BetLucky Customer Support Team by calling the support hotline for each of the Wheeling and Mardi Gras Casinos. A similar approach should be available for BetLucky In New York, with a dedicated hotline available for calls. Users are also expected to have the option of emailing the support team.
BetLucky Sports Betting NY Coverage
BetLucky NYC is expected to provide users with a wide range of sports and leagues to choose from similar to the West Virginia-based platform. NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL are all well represented on the site with hundreds of betting markets available both in pre-match and live betting each and every day. College football and basketball, and a number of popular international sports such as Soccer, Tennis and Rugby, are also expected to be available.
Since the BetLucky in New York Sportsbook will just be starting out you can expect the sports coverage to be smaller than what will be expected when the platform becomes more established.
Are There Streaming Options Available With BetLucky NYC?
BetLucky WV still isn’t offering any streaming options, however, the brand has expressed intentions to get a live streaming section going. The BetLucky In New York is unlikely to have streaming when it launches but may well add the feature down the line.
BetLucky Sports Betting NY App
A BetLucky Sports Betting NY App should be featured when the site goes live much like the West Virginia Sportsbook which runs solely on the mobile app. The app will be available on both iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded by visiting the BetLucky website and clicking on the download app button at the bottom of the homepage.
Using the BetLucky NYC App will be useful in making quick bets on the go anywhere in the state of New York. Location settings will be required to be turned on for mobile devices to ensure that users are within state lines. Users will also be able to turn on notifications on their mobile app that will notify them when their bets are completed or their favorite teams are available for betting.
