DraftKings Introduces ‘Spanish 21’ to iGaming Offerings
Exclusive Casino Game Available in New Jersey with Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia to Follow
BOSTON (April 12, 2021) – DraftKings Inc. (Nasdaq: DKNG) announced today the addition of Spanish 21, a DraftKings-built casino game, to its product suite. Exclusive to DraftKings customers, Spanish 21 will be available immediately in New Jersey with plans to expand into Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, pending regulatory approval.
“Spanish 21 has always been a popular land-based casino game, and we are proud to exclusively bring the Blackjack variant to our casino platform,” said Jason March, Vice President, Gaming at DraftKings. “Developed in-house with our customers in mind, we are excited to roll the game out for our casino players.”
Spanish 21 is played like traditional Blackjack, in which the dealer hits on 16 and stands on 17. However, a natural total of 21 on the first two cards always wins and is paid whether or not the dealer has a blackjack. Additionally, players can double down on any number of cards, surrender after doubling down on the original bet and after splitting aces, draw unlimited subsequent cards.
