DraftKings customers can now use a stand-alone app to play casino games in Pennsylvania.
The company announced the launch of the app Tuesday, which gives players a new option on their phones instead of navigating through the same site they use for sports betting and daily fantasy sports.
The move comes on the heels of DraftKings doing the same thing in New Jersey with a separate casino app launched June 23. On that same day, competitor FanDuel introduced its own casino app in Pennsylvania so customers wouldn’t have to go through its sportsbook site to play.
DraftKings casino made almost $4 million in May
DraftKings is primarily known for its sports betting and fantasy sports, but in April it introduced its casino product to Pennsylvania. Its casino games embedded on the sportsbook site took in $3.7 million in revenue in May, sixth best out of the iGaming sites in the state. FanDuel’s online casino, which had a head start several months earlier, earned $8 million.
Up to now, the DraftKings casino site, operating under a skin from Hollywood Casino, has had 29 slot options, four roulette games, blackjack, baccarat, and video poker.
