DraftKings Sportsbook To Launch Online Sports Betting in West Virginia

DraftKings has been awfully busy. After just annoucing DraftKings Casino yesterday, where DK players can go make bets on blackjack, joining MS sports betting with their first land-based sportsbook, and finding huge success in NJ sports betting in November, DraftKings Sportsbook is now entering the WV sports betting market.

DraftKings announced today that they have reached an agreement with Penn National Gaming, the operator of Hollywood Casino in West Virginia. The partnership allows WV residents to access DraftKings Sportsbook, allowing them to place sports bets online.

DraftKings Chief Revenue Officer and co-founder, Matt Kalish, expressed his excitement to work with Penn National Gaming, “We look forward to serving sports fans in the Mountain State and building on the immense success we have had in leading the New Jersey market.” Kalish added that he is confident that DraftKings will be the best place to play for West Virginia bettors.

Penn National Gaming Provides WV Sports Betting Access For DraftKings Sportsbook

Penn National Gaming owns and operates gaming and racing facilities, as well as video gaming terminal operations with a focus on slot machine entertainment. PNG has recently brought PA sports betting to Hollywood Casino and has successfully launched MS sports betting as well. The company continues to show the ability to be the first to deliver land-based sportsbooks and online sportsbooks. Now, PNG will be helping the DraftKings app enter the WV online sports betting market.

John Finamore, Sr. Vice President of Regional Operations for Penn National Gaming, is happy to welcome DraftKings to West Virginia, stating “We believe the state will certainly benefit from DraftKings’ tremendous brand awareness and expertise in providing customers a quality online sports betting experience.”

DraftKings Sportsbook WV Will Bring Plenty To The Player

DraftKings Sportsbook WV will offer an online sports betting experience that includes live and in-game betting, as well as the opportunity to bet on major sports around the world, including niche international and U.S. sports. DraftKings will bring all of its features to West Virginia such as their new Sportsbook Pools, which players can use on games for the NFL, NBA and NHL.

DraftKings will continue to set a high standard for their online platform as they continue expand into legal sports betting states, as well as enter retail sportsbooks in New Jersey and Mississippi, with more on the way.
