What's on the Horizon for Draftkings Sports Betting in the USA

Draftkings was the first to offer a sports betting app in the state of New Jersey.  There are now seven.  The company hopes to have a foothold in other states as well.

Outside of New Jersey, Draftkings has begun offering its newest innovation called "Team Pick'em", which is a free game that offers up real money prizes.

“The idea here was to try and create something for everyone to be able to win money picking NFL games,” DraftKings CEO and founder Jason Robins told MetroBet.us of Team Pick’em. “It’s something the casual NFL fan is able to do, and we wanted to capitalize on the recent sports betting news as some states have already started. We’re riding the wave of people focusing on sports betting – picking games, not players. It’s a free game, even though you can win money.”

"This is why we got into the business, we think it's a huge growth market. We think with the trends you are seeing out there with direct to consumer, the laws around sports betting loosening up, I think all of that is positive," Draftkings Co-founder and CEO Jason Robbins said.

Robins also exclusively told MetroBet.us that DraftKings will soon roll out new sports betting platforms and products that have never been used in the United States.

“The exciting thing about [the online sports book] is that most of the great innovations we haven’t even thought of yet,” Robins told MetroBet.us. “Our team is really looking forward to being creative and innovative in the coming years. In the short term, we do have something we’ve been working on that we haven’t announced yet. But it’s coming, and there are other new types of products we have in place that others haven’t implemented yet.”
