DraftKings Inc has officially announced opened the launch of its brand new sportsbook at the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort in D’Iberville, Mississippi. The doors opened on November 16 following receipt of license from the Mississippi Gaming Commission, among other required regulatory approvals.
CEO Jason Robins tweeted after the launch: “Officially cut the ribbon this morning for @DKSportsbook at @ScarletPearl-MS here in the state of Mississipi! Honored to be alongside such terrific partners for this momentous occasion. And thank you to the Mississippi Gaming Commission for their support and efforts.”
DraftKings at Scarlet Pearl Sportsbook will, said the firm, offer a superior customer experience that includes the opportunity to wager on dozens of sports. In addition, the sportsbook will soon offer live, in-game betting with three windows, giving sports fans a variety of ways to place their bets. Pending regulatory approval, the sportsbook will incorporate on-site kiosks and an on-premise mobile app.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort, whose leadership has a high bar for quality and a forward-thinking approach to sports betting; a perfect fit for DraftKings,” said Matt Kalish, chief revenue officer and co-founder of DraftKings. “We’re excited to bring and offer an innovative sports betting experience to sports fans in one of the largest and most competitive gaming markets in the US.”
