DraftKings Sportsbook will launch for sports betting in West Virginia this week, according to CrossingBroad.com.
It marks the second state DraftKings will bring its mobile sports betting app to, this in addition to New Jersey.
While they have no plans to enter PA online sports betting, DraftKings Sportsbook will be the first and only betting app available in West Virginia, at least for the time being.
Earlier this year, two casinos and one mobile app, Bet Lucky, launched in the state, but then were suspended and eventually shuttered due to problems with its data provider and the rights they had for the information they were providing. This means DraftKings now has a leg up on the competition, along with the brand recognition to go with it.
The DraftKings Sportsbook app will be the same app as is available in New Jersey for West Virginia.
