Design Works Gaming has penned a deal with DraftKings to supply the operator with its online casino games and supporting technology in Connecticut

Entering its fourth US jurisdiction, DWG will supply DraftKings with its LuckyTap titles and Vegas-style slots. Described as a “pilot” deal, the agreement sees DWG “trust” DraftKings to go live with these products as well as 10X Fortune and Break The Bounty LuckyTap

These titles are now live via Light & Wonder’s OpenGaming platform, and DWG will work with DraftKings to roll more content out in the next few months. 

For the games studio, this deal marks further expansion across the US online casino industry, as it seeks to become one of the US’ fastest-growing suppliers. 

The firm also has a presence in the online casino markets in New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. 

DWG CEO and Founder Troy Zurawski said: “Expanding into each US market comes with its own set of complexities. Our team knows how to navigate the regulatory landscape, understands local preferences, and tailors our games to meet the specific needs of Connecticut players. 

“By collaborating closely with DraftKings, we’re ready to bring the same elevated content and playing experience to Connecticut that we have to New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.” 

Recently, SBC Americas caught up with Zurawski to talk about his background in the industry as well as his future vision for DWG.
