DraftKings Move An Indicator Of Future Growth
DraftKing’s announcement of their partnership with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Foxwoods Resort Casino will result in the opening of a DraftKings sportsbook in the Foxwoods El San Juan Casino in the coming weeks.
According to the announcement, the retail sportsbook “will feature a massive video wall, bar and dining series, two over-the-counter ticket windows, and six betting kiosks.”
Foxwoods and DraftKings have a past history that includes launching sports betting and iGaming options in Connecticut.
This is a rather large move for DraftKings, as they have seen their stock drop by more than 50% over the past 6 months.
The prominent DFS provider now operates as a sportsbook in 17 countries, along with offering DFS in 44 states and their sportsbook in 39 states.
FanDuel Launches In Ontario As Online Sports Betting Begins In The Province
The announcement that FanDuel Sportsbook and FanDuel Casino are live come as no surprise with the regulation of province-sanction online single-game betting by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).
FanDuel has launched an app for both their casino and sportsbook, which will include the opportunity for players to place the popular Same Game Parlay bet that FanDuel offers.
FanDuel sportsbook is offered in 15 states and their DFS contests accept players from 44 states. Players must find other legal sportsbooks if they wish to wager.
