DraftKings, a company that allows people to wager on sports, announced today that its online casino in West Virginia would offer more iGaming products, including live dealer games, as of Friday, June 24, 2022.
Live Dealer Games, Shared Multiplayer Environment
With the addition of live dealer casino games, DraftKings players in West Virginia will be able to compete against other players at shared tables while playing roulette, baccarat, infinite blackjack, and other games.
In these games, actual casino dealers will replace the Random Number Generator (RNG) software.
DraftKings and Hollywood Casino at Charlestown Races have collaborated to bring DraftKings’ virtual table games and popular slot machines to West Virginia in July 2020.
Through the DraftKings Casino mobile app and the DraftKings Sportsbook app, which was integrated with the DraftKings Casino app, online casino players in the state could play games like blackjack, roulette, three-card poker, and keno.
People in West Virginia can now play Rocket, one of the operator’s most popular games, to test their skills and attempt to win real money payouts in a shared multiplayer environment with an interactive interface as part of the product expansion.
The game was developed in-house and is unlike any other on DraftKings Casino. It is exclusive to DraftKings.
Committed to Responsible Gaming
The availability of online casino games in West Virginia demonstrates DraftKings’ commitment to providing the most innovative, exciting, and engaging gaming experiences in regulated markets.
Customers can choose from more than 500 games and compete for millions of dollars in monthly prizes at DraftKings Casino. This can be accomplished safely and responsibly.
DraftKings partnered with BetBlocker at the beginning of this month to promote safe play and BetBlocker’s tools for responsible gambling.
DraftKings received an award from the Connecticut Council on Problem Gambling for its dedication to protecting the most vulnerable individuals through technology, training, resources, and fact-based research.
As a digital sports entertainment and gaming leader, the Boston-based company is devoting more resources to its S.E.R.V.E.S. program to build, imagine, and generate new concepts.
DraftKings Casino is currently offered in Ontario, Canada, Connecticut, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
DraftKings West Virginia adds live dealer options
Friday’s press release announced that DraftKings Casino in West Virginia now offers live dealer games. The press release states that there will be baccarat, blackjack, and roulette tables. DraftKings is the second West Virginia online casino to offer this type of game.
BetRivers Casino was the first to debut in the past two weeks. It is a significant advancement for the online gaming industry in the state. Other states, such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, have offered live dealer games for several months or years.
Some players prefer to play table games with a live dealer in online casinos because the experience feels more authentic. In addition, some players believe the outcome of games is more reliable when a real person is flipping the cards.
The DraftKings app allows players to play in this manner for whatever reason. Friday morning brings other news for online gamers in West Virginia.
West Virginians can now play the Rocket online casino game
Rocket is a game available exclusively on DraftKings. It resembles roulette in that you wager on a number to appear. However, you are now watching a digital “rocket launch” rather than a ball on a wheel.
You must predict whether the Rocket will “take off” and, if it does, how long it will remain airborne. You place your wager before the launch and then observe the event in real-time to determine if you were correct.
If you continue to hit, your winnings will increase with each hit. DraftKings hopes that by adding this game and live dealer games, its West Virginia business will become the most successful in the state.
