Starting September 28, 2023, eligible Kentucky customers will have the opportunity to place their bets through DraftKings’ online sportsbook across colleges and professional sports, including NCAA, NFL, MLB, NBA, and more. DraftKings gives customers in Kentucky access to place a variety of bets, such as the same gameplay, in-game betting options, player props, special probability boost choices, and more.
“Kentucky represents the 24th full jurisdiction where DraftKings lives and is excited to have the opportunity to deliver sports fans across Kentucky with its secure and legal mobile DraftKings Sportsbook app,” said Matt Kalish, DraftKings North America representative. “It’s an exciting time of year with the ongoing NFL and college football season, and we look forward to being the ultimate host to delivering a smooth and enjoyable sports betting experience for our customers.”
DraftKings teamed up with popular Kentucky Sports Radio (KSR) host Matt Jones ahead of its launch in the commonwealth. To celebrate, Jones will host a live show at the Mint Gaming Hall Cumberland in Williamsburg and make his first bet through the DraftKings Sportsbook app. 파칭코
