Daily fantasy sports companies like DraftKings and FanDuel are cleared to resume business in New York just in time for football season.
The state's Gaming Commission granted temporary permits to five daily fantasy operators.
This comes after Governor Cuomo signed a bill earlier this month that legalizes the sites, but regulates them.
The industry was forced to shut down in New York earlier this year after State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman likened the games to illegal gambling.
The new law defines fantasy sports as a "game of skill" and imposed consumer protections.
It also requires operators to pay a $50,000 annual fee and a 15 percent tax on revenue.
The gaming commission is still working on long-term regulations.
