The approval clears the way for the licensing process for the New York’s four upstate casinos to begin. 

The decision will see the Schenectady-based Rivers Casino, Tioga Downs racino in Nichols, del Lago Resort in the Finger Lakes and Monticello-based Resorts World Catskills be permitted to launch sports betting, provided they are approved for licences.
