An American sports betting and daily fantasy sports provider, DraftKings will be launching its new online casino gaming venue in Pennsylvania. During one very recent meeting of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board which is the state’s major iGaming regulatory body, DraftKings has petitioned for another Interactive Gaming Operator License which will approve its request to operate an online casino venue in the state. The operator’s request was approved by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
Hence, DraftKings is ready to start working on debuting its new online casino. The soft software launch of its online casino started several days ago and it ran from 2 pm until 10 pm. The following day, the software launch was also conducted from 1 pm until 11 pm. This was made possible thanks to the operator’s business cooperation with the Hollywood Casino venue at Penn National Race Course. With this agreement in place, DraftKings was able to petition for an online gambling application at the state which was approved.
DraftKings’ Pennsylvania Mobile Sports Betting App
As one of the most prominent names when it comes to the world of online sports betting in the United States, DraftKings is no stranger to the state of Pennsylvania as it has launched its mobile sports betting app back in November last year. This mobile sports betting app came as a result of DraftKings’s business partnership with the Meadows Racetrack venue which is owned and operated by Penn National.
DraftKings was established eight years ago in 2012 in the state of Massachusetts, the USA by Jason Robins, Paul Liberman, and Matt Kalish. The company is based in Boston and since its inception, it offers its customers to enter excellent daily as well as weekly fantasy sports events as well as bet on all major sports including popular leagues in the USA such as the NHL, MLB, NFL as well as the NBA and NASCAR. Punters registered at DraftKings sports betting platforms can also place wagers on events of the Premier League, UEAF Champions League, Canadian Football League as well as on tennis, mixed martial arts, and loads of other sports.
Back in August of 2018, the sports betting operator launched its New Jersey-friendly DraftKings Sportsbook which as suggested was made available to residents of New Jersey. At the time, DraftKings was the first legal sports betting operator in New Jersey to open its virtual doors to fans of sports betting. Since its debuting date in New Jersey, the Boston-headquartered sports betting operator has opened online and mobile sportsbooks in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and New Hampshire after reaching an agreement with the state-run lottery.
Offering Retail Sports Betting Activities
In addition to offering online and mobile sports betting activities in several states, DraftKings also offers retail betting activities in New York, Mississippi, and Iowa. When it comes to the company’s presence in the USA, DraftKings already managed an online casino that accepts players from New Jersey who are legally allowed to gamble.
The operator’s brand-new Pennsylvania online casino which will accept players from Pennsylvania will probably be similar to its New Jersey online venue which offers an excellent selection of slots alongside a variety of classic table games and video poker games. The online casino operated by DraftKings available in New Jersey is also packed with a great selection of live dealer casino games and the brand-new DraftKings casino which will launch soon will probably feature these games as well.
