According to gambling news reports, DraftKings is developing a standalone mobile gambling app for New Jersey residents. Also, rumors stated the gaming firm will release the DraftKings mobile gambling app in the next couple of months.
Since it entered the US market, DraftKings has always been ahead of FanDuel. In fact, they both started as daily fantasy sports operators but since moved on to other types of aspects of gaming. DraftKings wants to become the top online sportsbook in the nation, and the launch of its mobile casino app will help it achieve the goal.
DraftKings already released a mobile sportsbook app in New Jersey last August of 2018. In December, it added a blackjack game to the app. Over time, the company added other games including slots, roulette, and poker. Launching a DraftKings mobile gambling app is the logical next move. It will be hard for a pay per head sportsbook to compete against it in NJ.
DraftKings already has a partnership with Evolution Gaming to expand its online gambling options. The deal allows the former to offer live-dealer games. Evolution Gaming is the go-to live casino service provider of online gambling firms in New Jersey.
Until last year, DraftKings was strictly a daily fantasy sports operator. At present, it is one of the leading sports betting operators in various states where it is legal. In fact, it is the first operator to offer online betting in NJ.
DraftKings caters to sports bettors, fans, and online gaming enthusiasts. They managed to attract people who are new to mobile casino games. In addition, they saw some DFS players playing blackjack through the mobile sportsbook app.
DraftKings came to New Jersey at the right time. It is the first state to legalize sports betting after the Supreme Court ruling. By introducing a mobile gambling app, it will greatly increase its market share. Pay per head service providers need to work double time to attract players away from the kings.
