“DraftKings’ entry into Canada with our online sportsbook and online casino products is a significant milestone in our expansion efforts as we reach nearly 40% of Canada’s total population,” commented Jason Robins, DraftKings Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO.
“We look forward to providing the passionate fanbase in Ontario with the most entertaining and responsible gaming experience possible.”
Earlier this month, Robins praised DraftKings’ operational performance in Q1, which was headlined by efficient acquisition and retention following its launch in both New York and Louisiana.
Publishing its Q1 financials, the operator recorded revenue of $417m, up 34% year-on-year, driven by its B2C activities which recorded 44% YoY.
