DraftKings online sportsbook goes live in Wyoming
DraftKings online sportsbook has officially launched in Wyoming. Beginning today, customers in Wyoming at least 18 years old can now wager on various markets across professional and collegiate sports using DraftKings’ mobile sportsbook app.
“Legalized sports betting has seen wide-spread growth in just three years and the DraftKings Sportsbook has been at the center of the action,” said Matt Kalish, co-founder and President, DraftKings North America. “We are thrilled that Wyoming sports bettors have the opportunity to experience the highly accessible and immersive fan experience along with best in class consumer protections that our product offers millions of skin-in-the-game sports fans.”
Wyoming is the third state this year to launch DraftKings Online Sportsbook, following launches in Virginia and Michigan in January, and joins Colorado as the second state in the Western United States. Per state regulations, Wyoming joins Virginia as the second state this year to permit direct mobile licensing, allowing mobile operators such as DraftKings, which generate a majority of sports betting revenue, to be licensed independent of any tethering to a land-based casino or other brick-and-mortar establishment.
The DraftKings Online Sportsbook comes to Wyoming after the company launched its popular daily fantasy product there nine years ago. Notably, former University of Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen was named DraftKings’ Fantasy Football Player of the Year last season at the NFL Honors award ceremony following his stellar season with the Buffalo Bills.
