DraftKings has gone live this week with its digital sportsbook app in Pennsylvania. Following the firm’s recent expansion into West Virginia and Indiana with its mobile and online sportsbook, it can now officially offer fans in Pennsylvania an “elevated gaming experience”. 

Arriving during the midst of the 2019 NFL season and start of NBA, fans in The Keystone State can take advantage of advanced in-app features including in-game betting, odds boosts, props, futures, as well as FlashBet for major US and international sports.

“We have seen immense success over the last year with our Sportsbook product and are thrilled for this pivotal next step as DraftKings expands into Pennsylvania,” said Jason Robins, Co-Founder and CEO. 

“Pennsylvania is home to two of the biggest sports cities in the world and multiple big-time college programs, with some of the most die-hard fan bases of all-time. We could not be more excited to introduce those fans to our top-rated mobile sportsbook and provide them with the unrivaled experience that has become synonymous with DraftKings.”

DraftKings described the demand for sports betting among Pennsylvanians as “immense” given that the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers are among the most bet teams to win Super Bowl LIV. To date, its sportsbook has already surpassed the $1bn threshold for total handle, and Pennsylvania bettors appear poised to boost that figure further it predicted.
