DraftKings launches new igaming products in West Virginia

| By Zak Thomas-Akoo
DraftKings launched a new set of igaming products in West Virginia today (24 June), including roulette, baccarat and infinite blackjack.

These new online games are in addition to DraftKings’ original offerings, which first launched in West Virginia in July 2020 after legislation to introduce sports betting in the state was passed one year prior. It was the first operator to enter the state’s market.

The newly-available live casino games are designed to be played with a real dealer, rather than a random number generator software. In addition, DraftKings will also offer its in-house developed multiplayer game Rocket to customers in the state.

This will be the second launch for the company in as many months, with the launch of its online sports betting and igaming products in the Canadian province of Ontario in May.

The news comes after DraftKings and self-exclusion software developer BetBlocker announced a responsible betting partnership last week.

Earlier this month Rush Street interactive added its sportsbook to its existing online casino at BetRivers in West Virginia.
