Bringing Exciting Betting Options to Kentucky

Starting September 28, 2023, eligible customers in Kentucky will gain access to DraftKings’ online sportsbook, offering a wide range of betting options covering collegiate and professional sports, including the NCAA, NFL, MLB, NBA, and more. Kentucky customers can enjoy placing various bets, including same-game parlays, in-game betting choices, player props, special odds boost selections, and more.

With Kentucky becoming the 24th jurisdiction where DraftKings operates, the company is enthusiastic about delivering a safe and legal mobile sportsbook app to sports enthusiasts throughout the state. The timing coincides with the ongoing NFL and college football seasons, promising a seamless and enjoyable sports betting experience for customers.

Matt Kalish, President, DraftKings North America, said “Kentucky marks the 24th Jurisdiction overall where DraftKings is live, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver sports fans across Kentucky with our safe and legal mobile DraftKings Sportsbook app. It’s an exciting time of year with the NFL and college football seasons currently underway, and we look forward to being the ultimate host, providing customers with a seamless and enjoyable sports betting experience.”

DraftKings has partnered with popular Kentucky Sports Radio (“KSR”) host Matt Jones in anticipation of its Kentucky launch. To celebrate this milestone, Jones will host his show live from The Mint Gaming Hall Cumberland in Williamsburg and place a ceremonial first bet using the DraftKings Sportsbook app.

Matt Jones expressed his excitement about collaborating with DraftKings and delivering engaging content to KSR listeners and sports fans across Kentucky. He emphasized the importance of partnering with a top-tier company for eligible Kentucky bettors and anticipates celebrating more milestones with DraftKings.
