DraftKings seeks casino partner

The company is looking for a casino partner to develop sports betting in New Jersey if the US Supreme Court rules in favor of lifting the national ban.

US.- Daily fantasy sports (DFS) could gain a new position in the US legal market as New Jersey is allegedly interested in allowing the development of the gaming sector. According to this weekend’s statements, leading daily fantasy sports operator DraftKings would sign a partnership with a New Jersey casino.

“DraftKings, with the world’s most popular daily fantasy sports platform and nearly 10 million sports-mad customers, is perfectly positioned to succeed in a legal sports betting market. In preparation for the possibility of sports wagering in New Jersey, DraftKings has naturally had discussions with potential land-based casino partners, as required under the state’s online gaming regulations,” said the company’s official statement.

Furthermore, they added: “We do not have any announcements at this time, and our focus continues to be on creating great sports entertainment experiences for the millions of customers who currently use DraftKings.”

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is expected to revoke the Professional and Amateur Sports Betting Act (PASPA) of 1992 soon and betting companies are getting ready to jump in. That’s why Jason Robins, chief executive and co-founder of DraftKings, explained that the legalisation of sports betting in the US represents an “enormous” growth opportunity for the company.
