DraftKings’ sportsbook app is now accessible in two US states after it made its debut in West Virginia this week. The platform previously made history in New Jersey as the first mobile, online and legal betting offering outside of Nevada. The official launch follows the firm’s licensing agreement with Penn National Gaming Inc in December 2018 and marks, it said, “…a pivotal next step for national expansion of the product”.

“We are thrilled to continue our DraftKings Sportsbook expansion by getting our product into the hands of West Virginians,” said Matt Kalish, co-founder and Chief Revenue Officer. “We look forward to serving our fans with the top-rated DraftKings Sportsbook app, that features numerous consumer protection features and strives to provide the broadest selection of betting options with the best odds and rewards in West Virginia.” 

“We are pleased to help welcome DraftKings to West Virginia,” said John Finamore, Senior Vice President of Regional Operations at Penn National Gaming. “They provide a quality online sports betting experience that will benefit their customers and the state.”

In a separate announcement, it has been confirmed that DraftKings online casino in New Jersey is now hosting a broad selection of video slots and table games from NetEnt Americas.

The firm’s Managing Director Erik Nyman commented: “DraftKings has a large player base and we are certain that they will enjoy our portfolio of casino games. Players in the US can also look forward to a very exciting roadmap of games to be launched during the rest of the year and beyond.”
