DraftKings Introducing Craps to its Online Casino Offerings

DraftKings is bolstering its online casino offerings with the launch of DK Craps.

On Monday, the gaming company announced its mobile casino in New Jersey would be the first state to debut the popular casino game, with Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia to follow pending regulatory approval.

DraftKings’ craps game is a company exclusive and built in-house, a news release said. DK Craps expands on the 494 existing DraftKings Casino games across approved states, with 50 having been built from utilizing DraftKings’ in-house talent and technology.

“As the most realistic craps game on the market, we are excited to offer a premier online experience within our top-rated Casino product,” Jason March, DraftKings vice president of iGaming, said in a news release. “Craps was a challenging game to develop given the seemingly endless paths players can take, so I could not be prouder of our internal teams taking on this game development to deliver an authentic experience.”

DK Craps will offer advanced betting features to give the user seamless in-app gameplay. The game will also allow players to place multiple bets with a single tap, similar to how they may make a singular request to a dealer in a physical casino. Players can also roll or swipe the dice in the direction of their choice and also have the option to keep their bets on the table following each win.

DK Craps will also feature in-game tutorials and on-screen help to assist new players or those looking for a refresher on the game’s rules. Players can download and play DK Craps on the DraftKings Casino app on iOS or Android.
