DraftKings launches mobile sportsbook in Pennsylvania


Daily fantasy and sports betting operator DraftKings has rolled out its mobile sportsbook in Pennsylvania.

Consumers in the state can now download the app and access features such as in-game betting, odds boosts, props, futures and FlashBet for major US and international sports.

DraftKings is also active in New Jersey and West Virginia, while the operator last month launched its online and mobile sportsbook in Indiana.

“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,” DraftKings’ co-founder and chief executive Jason Robins said.

“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.”

In September, licensed sports wagering operators in Pennsylvania generated collective revenue of $19.4m in the second full month of regulated sports wagering.

Valley Forge Casino recorded the highest sports betting revenue in the month with $7.5m, more than double the $3.1m it posted in August. Valley Forge also ranked first in terms of online sports betting revenue, with its FanDuel-powered sportsbooks bringing in $7.1m.
