You will not be able to bet using the Draftkings sportsbook app from Massachusetts at the moment.  Currently, BetUS (now celebrating 25 years in business) does take bets from those living in Massachusetts and offers a generous welcome bonus with a max of $2500 - USE BONUS CODE: G911. 

When Can I Bet Using the Draftkings App From Inside Massachusetts

DraftKings was instrumental in getting its daily fantasy sports platform legalized in the state, having had its headquarters based out of Boston.

The state's casinos and lotteries are likely to have the most clout here and it is unclear whether they will want DraftKings in the picture, assuming sports betting gets legalized.  We don't anticipate this happening until at least 2020.

In April 2019, House Democratic leaders unveiled a $42.7 billion state budget that proposed additional spending on education but quickly put the brakes on legalization of sports betting.

“I think that is going to require a lot of discussion,” Speaker Robert DeLeo said. “I’m aware it could be an important source of revenue, but how we are going to do it … I don’t think it’s probably as easy as some people think it may be.”

Rhode Island is currently the only state that offers in-state sportsbooks but the options are limited and the wagering platform is viewed by many as inferior.
