Although DraftKings is most well widely known in the United States for its daily fantasy sports site, the brand is gradually shifting focus towards the more lucrative sports betting market. With the opening of the DraftKings WV online sportsbook, which comes through its partnership with Penn National, West Virginia becomes the second state to be served with a DraftKings DFS site and an online sportsbook. DraftKings New Jersey went live last year.

On iOS devices, the app can be downloaded through the Apple App Store. Users on Android are required to download the app through the DraftKings Sportsbook website, given the Google Play’s store restrictions on real money apps.
