New York regulators are scheduled Monday to take a key step toward authorizing sports betting in the state, though only at the state’s existing casinos and not on mobile devices.

According to the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, the state’s Gaming Commission is set to meet in Manhattan for a preliminary vote on rules that would let the state’s private and Native-owned casinos accept bets on sporting events – so long as they are placed in person. Four such casinos would qualify to have sportsbooks.

Phone betting is not part of the process at the moment.

The vote will launch a public-comment period of at least 45 days before the rules can be finalized.
