DraftKings PA Enjoys 1st Week of Online Casino Operations

DraftKings PA Enjoys 1st Week of Online Casino Operations

As first reported last week, DraftKings officially joined the ranks of legal Pennsylvania online casinos on May 1 and have enjoyed a successful first full week of operation.

After being accepted for their online casino license by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) and approved just two days before their launch, DraftKings clearly were ready for the big event and after a week of operation things have gone off without a hitch.

DraftKings round out the Pennsylvanian online casino Top 10

Now open for business 24/7, the DraftKings online casino is now one of 10 online casinos operating in the Keystone State after Caesars also opened for business in Pennsylvania last week in combination with their chosen land-based casino partner, Harrah’s Philadelphia.

Last week, in addition to enjoying a first week of online casino operation in Pennsylvania, DraftKings had a lot to celebrate by also becoming a publicly listed company on the stock exchange. The company’s opening share price leapt by an incredible 15% in their first 30 minutes of public trading on the floor of the NASDAQ.

Taking that onboard, lets examine what the DraftKings online casino has to offer Pennsylvania players in addition to their sports betting and Daily Fantasy Sports options in the Keystone State.

DraftKings – a new and fresh online casino for Pennsylvania

Clearly, DraftKings look at the online casino world through new and non-traditional eyes. In a fresh and new first-of-its-kind feature for online casinos, Pennsylvanian online players will have the opportunity to personalize the felt designs across online casino table games including holiday and sport-specific and themes.

For this first week of DraftKings operation since launch, only games from the software developer IGT have been available. However, eventually expect game developer companies like Amaya, NextGen, IGT, Scientific Games, and NetEnt to all lend their expertise and some of their best game titles to the DraftKings game library. According to a source from inside the DraftKings camp, the Pennsylvanian DraftKings platform will ultimately have 280 games. Expect the remainder of the DraftKings Online Casino games catalogue to roll out in stages and eventually also include a selection of Live Dealer Casino games;

“While we do not have an exact timeframe, all 280 options will follow quickly after launch including those that feature a live dealer and those that are DraftKings branded.”
