Daily fantasy and sports betting operator DraftKings has opened a new office in Las Vegas, Nevada, to support its ongoing growth plans in the US market.
The Las Vegas facility will house teams dedicated to customer experience, fraud, casino, sportsbook traders, HR and IT. Almost 300 employees will be based at the new site.
The move comes after DraftKings last month agreed a deal to be acquired by a special purpose acquisition company alongside betting and gaming technology provider SBTech. As part of this transaction, the business agreed be reincorporated in Nevada.
Since October 2018, DraftKings said it has seen a 40% increase in its overall employee headcount, while the operator also recently announced a 20,000sq ft expansion of its Boston global headquarters.
