DraftKings announces launch of digital sportsbook in Virginia
DraftKings, the leading sports betting platform, has announced the launch of its digital sportsbook in the U.S. state of Virginia. This premiere marks the twelfth state that it is now active in with both its mobile and online sports wagering service.
In consequence of the new approval from the Virginia Lottery, customers who use the DraftKings app in this state will now be provided with more betting opportunities throughout this whole year. They will have the ability to place bets on various markets across collegiate and professional sports that are taking place in Virginia.
According to reports, DraftKings will give players the chance to bet on over 250 unique leagues such as boxing, soccer, baseball, golf, football, hockey and more. It is expected that most sports fans in Virginia will be using the DraftKings app to bet on the NFL and the NBA.
DraftKings is a well-known brand all over the U.S. with debuts occurring across various US states. Just last week, they debuted in Michigan as a result of the latest law changes in the state. By launching in Virginia, they are looking to offer a wonderful experience for fans just in time for the Super Bowl.
Co-Founder and CEO of DraftKings, Jason Robins, stated: “Just in time for Super Bowl LV, we are thrilled to bring the DraftKings sports betting experience to Virginia with an abundance of betting options for fans. With our customer-first approach, we hope to be the sportsbook of choice for Virginians who enjoy having skin in the game.”
This brand is quickly becoming one of the most recognised options for sports fans all over the states. With more markets opening up all the time, DraftKings is definitely a brand to watch out for in 2021.
