DraftKings Betting App Available in Your State?
Unlike Pennsylvania Sports Betting, legislation for West Virginia Sports betting allowed for up to three partners, allowing for more flexibility when it comes to DraftKings sportsbook access. However, their daily fantasy sports competitor, FanDuel has a presence in the state and has since the beginning. Finding a partner, especially with DraftKings brand power, should be an easy task. Right now, West Virginia is the most likely next destination for the DraftKings betting app.
As the sports betting capital of the world, it’s not a foregone conclusion that DraftKings Sportsbook will go there, even though they are opening an office there. In Nevada, daily fantasy sports is not considered a skill game, and DraftKings will not register for a gambling license with their daily fantasy sports platform. Needless to say, the relationship isn’t great. However, things can get crazy and quickly improve within the new regulated sports gambling landscape.
After announcing a partnership with Del Lago earlier this year, DraftKings Sports betting presence in New York has been initiated. However, NY sports betting legislation needs to be in place, which it currently is not. It’s been voted in, but the NY government is taking their time with implementation. For now, the timeline is TBD.
PA online sports betting is approved and ready to begin in 2019. Obviously, this is extremely good news for DraftKings. In the form of a partnership, DraftKings might not be able to do what they’d like via utilizing their strong brand recognition. Per PA sports betting regs, a company can only launch a single online/mobile application with its own logo and use just one partner. Additionally, about four casinos are off the board with partners locked in: SugarHouse, Parx Casino, Presque Isle, and Harrah’s.
Current DraftKings Sportsbook Locations:
- DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
- DraftKings Sportsbook at the Scarlet Pearl Resort in D’Iberville, Mississippi.
