DraftKings Expands Casino Gaming Suite With DK Craps
Exclusive Casino Game to Be Made Available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia
BOSTON, June 14, 2021 – DraftKings Inc. (Nasdaq: DKNG) today announced the addition of DK Craps to its mobile Casino suite in New Jersey with Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia to follow pending regulatory approval. The game is a DraftKings-exclusive and built in house. The launch of DK Craps expands on 494 existing DraftKings Casino games across approved states, 50 of which have been built leveraging DraftKings in-house talent and technology.
“As the most realistic craps game on the market, we are excited to offer a premier online experience within our top-rated Casino product,” said Jason March, DraftKings Vice President, iGaming. “Craps was a challenging game to develop given the seemingly endless paths players can take, so I could not be prouder of our internal teams taking on this game development to deliver an authentic experience.”
Offering advanced betting features for seamless in-app gameplay, DK Craps allows players to place multiple bets with a single tap, similar to how they might make a singular request to a dealer in a physical casino. The new game also lets players roll or swipe the dice in the direction of their choice and gives players the option to keep their bets on the table after each win. Additionally, for those unfamiliar with craps or looking to brush up on their skills, DK Craps features in-game tutorials and on-screen help that place answers at players’ fingertips.
Customers can download and play DK Craps on DraftKings Casino via iOS and Android here.
