Pennsylvania Becomes the Seventh State to Join in on DraftKings Sportsbook Action
BOSTON (November 7, 2019) – DraftKings Inc. today announced the launch of its digital sportsbook app in Pennsylvania. Following DraftKings’ recent expansion into West Virginia and Indiana with its top-rated mobile and online sportsbook, DraftKings now officially offers 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 U.S. 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 chief executive officer at DraftKings. “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.”
The demand for sports betting among Pennsylvanians is immense as the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers are among the most bet teams to win Super Bowl LIV. DraftKings’ ability to allow users to bet on the nation’s most popular sport is emblematic of the All-American company’s commitment to reinforcing its position at the forefront of sports entertainment innovation by once again expanding its national reach. To date, DraftKings Sportsbook has already surpassed the $1-billion threshold for total handle, and Pennsylvania bettors appear poised to boost that figure further.
From Pennsylvania, to New Jersey, to Indiana and West Virginia, fans can seamlessly engage with both DraftKings’ sportsbook and fantasy apps, available via iOS and Android or online at Sportsbook.DraftKings.com.
