DraftKings Sportsbook

The history of DraftKings dates to 2012, when the company’s three co-founders – Jason Robins, Matthew Kalish and Paul Liberman – wanted to take the same lessons about customer acquisition they learned as executives at VistaPrint and apply those to fantasy sports.

Soon, the company would be known for its online sportsbook, to complement its daily fantasy sports platform. Boston-based DraftKings Sportsbook has grown fast, offering a high-end platform that’s easy to use.

A highly regarded industry leader, DraftKings not only is one of the industry's most recognizable fantasy and sports-betting brands, but it also has broadened its media reach by acquiring the Las Vegas-based VSiN network.

FanDuel Sportsbook

New Jersey was their beachhead, but Tipico has expanded into other regulated markets, including Colorado, Ohio and Iowa (with an online casino in New Jersey).
