Finger lakes online poker site
New York legislators were considering opening up a legal and regulated online poker market in early 2018. The Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack does not host a poker room. However, owners Delaware North operate several poker rooms throughout the country.
The release of the Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack App, with free-to-play casino games, suggests Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack and Delaware North are early iGaming adopters.
