New York is the first state to legalise online sports betting.

On the first day of mobile sports betting in the Empire State, New Yorkers placed their first legal online, in-state sports wagers Saturday morning.

One lucky gambler bet $15 on a longshot six-team football parlay, which will pay him $1,430.45 if he wins, according to a tweet from DraftKings.

The wager was made at 9:01 a.m., only one minute after four casino operators — Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive — started for business.

The first wager on the Caesars app was a hazardous parlay, with a player investing $20 to win $233.16 on five European soccer games, the business noted in a tweet.

According to a firm representative, a fairly confident gambler placed $500 on Saturday’s Chiefs-Broncos game on Rush Street.

The first bets were placed at 9:01 a.m., one minute after the casinos began for business.

At 9:01 a.m., the first bet on FanDuel was a $21 wager on the Cowboys-Eagles game.

The casinoson provided no information on how much money was won or lost on sports in New York on Saturday. The state Gaming Commission has stated that it will reveal betting volume data on a monthly basis.

On Saturday, at least one winner emerged: former New York Rangers goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist, who joined Caesars Sportsbook as an ambassador.

Draft Kings stated in a tweet that the first mobile bet in New York was a six-way parlay that could reward the bettor more than $1,400.
