Earlier this year, the sportsbook recorded one more major achievement, as it went live in New York State’s new mobile sports betting market.

Despite its recent expansion into new regulated markets, the company is still determined to advocate responsible gambling to its many players. Currently, the operator offers numerous resources to help customers play safe, including the industry-leading program GameSense, which is provided by the BCLC. Through the integration, players of the app can access directly responsible gaming tools with ease.
