On Wednesday, West Virginia welcomed the arrival of a cutting-edge mobile sportsbook app, powered by the renowned US bookmaker DraftKings and hosted at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races.
Penn National Gaming, a leading gambling operator, unveiled its strategic partnership with DraftKings on July 31, heralding a new era of sports betting experiences at its casinos.
“We are absolutely thrilled to extend the reach of our DraftKings Sportsbook platform to the enthusiastic sports fans of West Virginia,” declared Matt Kalish, co-founder and Chief Revenue Officer at DraftKings. “DraftKings has a profound understanding of the American sports landscape, and we are eager to demonstrate this expertise in the Mountain State,” he affirmed.
Residents of West Virginia now have the opportunity to engage in pre-match, in-game, and live wagering through the DraftKings mobile app, delivering an immersive sports betting experience right to their fingertips.
DraftKings first introduced its mobile betting product to the eager enthusiasts of New Jersey in August 2018. Since its launch, the platform has distributed over $720 million in winnings to bettors, solidifying its reputation as a premier destination for sports wagering.
