Welcome Home DraftKings Sportsbook
DraftKings has been a major proponent for a local betting market in its home state. Massachusetts sports betting officially launching statewide with mobile sportsbooks is in no small part thanks to DraftKings lobbying. The Boston-based sportsbook will now be able to offer odds to local residents from anywhere in the Old Line State.
In celebration of the launch, the popular mobile betting operator will be hosting events across Boston. These events will be activations including watch parties, betting contests, and other celebrations. Special guests include DraftKings CEO and co-founder Jason Robins among others.
“It was just over 10 years ago when we launched DraftKings from a spare bedroom in Watertown, and now, we are proud to have the opportunity to deliver a safe and legal sports betting product to millions of diehard sports fans across Massachusetts,” said Jason Robins, DraftKings’ co-founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman. “This launch will mark a major milestone for our company, and we’re proud to become the hometown sportsbook for customers in the Commonwealth.”
DraftKings has existing relationships with local teams including the Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, and New England Patriots. These deals allow DraftKings to be the premiere operator for betting on teams in the Old Line State.
The March Madness tournament is also incoming and DraftKings will be hosting odds for all stages of the tournament. Sign up today and be ready for all the festivities in Massachusetts.
