Great news for New York sports bettors, DraftKings has been given the go-ahead to open its virtual doors and begin operating virtually in the Empire State.

DraftKings was one of eight other operators awaiting approval to join the New York sports betting scene. Luckily for fans of DraftKings, the sports betting powerhouse was given the green light to open ahead of schedule along with three other major operators in FanDuel, BetRivers, and Caesars

Bringing DraftKings to the comfort of your own home

The early launch of the DraftKings virtual platform on the 8th of January 2022 came as a pleasant surprise to many New York sports bettors who were expecting to be waiting much longer for the platform to release.

DraftKings may only have launched in 2012, but in its young history it has amassed a huge amount of popularity in the United States. Providing the ability for bettors to wager across daily fantasy sports proved to be an excellent gap in the market.

While bettors have been making use of the DraftKings sportsbook since 2019, it wasn’t until April 2021 that New York had approved mobile and online sports betting. The wait is finally over, as the DraftKings site was launched on January 8th 2022 and sports bettors have been flocking to use the website and place their bets from the comfort of their own home.

What’s more is that DraftKings launched their site just in time for the Big Game. Super Bowl LVI is just around the corner, scheduled for February 13th, and it’s going to make the arrival of DraftKings that much more exciting.

DraftKings is now officially legal in New York, licensed and regulated by the New York State Gaming Commission. DraftKings is one of the nine sportbooks licensed in New York, all carefully selected by the NYSGC and every one of them is already a well-known brand in other states.

What to expect from DraftKings New York

DraftKings have anticipated the arrival of their mobile and online platform just as much as their New York fans have. As such, they’re offering a fantastic DraftKings NY welcome offer in the form of a two-part welcome bonus to the value of $1050 and works in a similar way to the FanDuel New York new sign up deal that is proving popular with sports bettors.

Signing up to DraftKings is simple and easy, however you must be over the age of 21, and now you can sign up simply by visiting their website or downloading the mobile app! Even if you’re a newcomer to sports betting, DraftKings offers a simple and easy to use platform that will allow you to quickly learn the ropes and get involved just in time for Super Bowl LVI.

Moreover, DraftKings users will automatically join the Dynasty Rewards Program which has a reputation for being one of the best loyalty programs in the industry where you’ll earn points, known as Crowns for all real-money transactions you make.

Your crowns can be exchanged for perks and rewards. What’s great about this loyalty program is that it’s connected across all DraftKings platforms, from the casino to the DraftKings sportsbook and daily fantasy sports. It doesn’t matter where you spend your money, as long as you use DraftKings you’ll earn more crowns.

If you’re not familiar with the DraftKings platform, you can now get onto it and familiarize yourself with the website or app if you’re a New York resident! It’salso worth keeping a close eye on the news, as the remaining NY sportsbooks due to launch will be deciding on a firm date and posting details of their NY bonuses very soon.
