The announcement affects Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive.

The New York State Gaming Commission says the other five are in the process of meeting statutory and regulatory requirements and will be approved when those are met.

State elected officials approved mobile sports betting in April and have estimated it could bring in up to $500 million in tax revenue annually.
