Monkey Knife Fight is an emerging leader in this new and exciting sports gaming space, and we look forward to beginning this partnership with a memorable 2020 season.”
With traditional legal sports betting still not making its way to Florida, Monkey Knife Fight continues to capitalize on the current and growing DFS market there.
