This isn’t the first time that DraftKings and DISH have partnered with one another. The pair have come together to bring the DraftKings sportsbook to DISH’s portfolio, allowing for direct app integration on the DISH TV Hopper.
“The integration with DraftKings is an exciting enhancement for our customers and a great addition to the growing DISH TV Hopper platform — a one-stop entertainment hub,” said Brian Neylon, Group President, DISH TV. “We’re thrilled to work with DraftKings to amplify the sports-fan experience, and extend the DraftKings footprint across our unique suite of services, including SLING TV and Boost Mobile, with potential applications across our 5G wireless buildout in the future.”
This Boost Mobile deal builds on the initial relationship between DISH and DraftKings and allows Boost Mobile users whole new ways to get in on the action.
With fans being able to fund their betting accounts directly from Boost Mobile stores, this opens up sports betting to a whole new set of users.
Players can fund using Boost Mobile prepaid phones. They can download the app and load money into DraftKings sportsbook at the store as they purchase their phone.
Both entities expect to see a boost (no pun intended) in users following this major partnership.
The exclusive contests that will be coming along with this deal will see users being able to sign up for multiple events throughout the year. One such event is the NBA Finals betting contest that would see Boost Mobile patrons play to win $100,000.
Players must guess to see how many points will be scored throughout the course of the series for a chance at the big prize.
This is a major integration for legal sports betting and mobile devices. Should this be successful, this may lead to similar deals with other mobile carriers and sportsbooks.
