The first four weeks of legal online casino in West Virginia saw players wager $37.2m on DraftKings’ casino products, resulting in revenue of $824,639, the latest figures from the West Virginia Lottery Commission reveal.
The state became the third in which DraftKings rolled out its standalone casino app on 15 July, following launches in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, in partnership with Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races.
This remains the sole legal online casino in the state, with no other operator having followed DraftKings in launching an offering.
Players staked $6.9m over the first four days post-launch, on the week to July 17, rising to $9.4m for the seven days to July 25. The best week of the period, for the seven days to August 1, followed with players staking $12.2m, with players then wagering $8.6m in the week ended August 8.
That last week, despite a dip in amounts wagered, was the most successful in terms of revenue, with $271,494, the highest seven-day total of the period.
