Boom Sports is creating an online sportsbook.

  • Boom Sports is planning to open online sportsbooks in five different states.
  • The sportsbooks will open in Ohio, Missouri, Louisiana, Mississippi, and New Mexico.
  • Boom Sports is opening mobile sportsbooks thanks to a deal with Penn National Gaming.

NEW YORKBoom Sports announced that they are planning to open sportsbooks in five different states across the country.

Boom Sports is a daily fantasy sports (DFS) operator much like DraftKings and FanDuel are. Although they are not as well known, Boom Sports has been growing in the past few years. Now Boom Sports wants to take the plunge and enter the legal sports betting world.

Opening Mobile Sportsbooks

Boom Sports is partnering with Penn National Gaming for this venture. Through their partnership, Boom Sports will have the ability to create online skins in five different states. The states they will be operating in are Ohio, Mississippi, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Missouri.

Of the five states, only Mississippi sports betting has been legalized and regulated. New Mexico has sports betting, but this is only through tribal compacts and does not exist outside of tribal casinos.

The other states do not yet have sports betting legalized or operational. Mississippi also does not have mobile sports betting legalized outside of casinos at the moment. So, although Boom Sports has access to five different states, they actually do not have much room to begin operations.

But the company is thinking about the future more than anything.

“We’re thrilled to take this first step with Penn National Gaming in offering premier free-to-play and real-money products for the US gaming industry,” said Stephen A. Murphy, co-founder and CEO of Boom Sports. “We look forward to establishing ourselves as the premier partner in the US casino industry just as we have done for US sports leagues and media companies.”

If the five states they have listed start moving toward mobile sports betting, Boom Sports will be ready to provide a sportsbook for customers. For now, they are developing their technologies to prepare for such a moment and working with other sports betting businesses.
