DraftKings launches new ‘Rocket’ online casino game

By Gambling Insider

DraftKings has announced the addition of its new game DraftKings Rocket to the DraftKings Casino product suite.

It marks the latest addition to a host of over 30 games that have been developed by internal team members and form a part of over 60 unique game builds in total.

With a prize pool of $1m, the operator has stated that DraftKings Rocket is a game of instinct that delivers real-money potential pay-outs within a shared and interactive interface.

Players compete alongside one another in real time by placing wagers before a virtual rocket launches into orbit. As the virtual rocket rises, the possible winnings from player wagers grows.

To cash out, players must bail from the rocket before it stops rising.

In a press release, the company teased several twists and hidden features in the game, including random objects floating in space.

Jason March, Vice President at DraftKings, said: “By developing DraftKings Rocket, our team continues to innovate our Casino offerings as we set out to create an all-new, one-of-a-kind iGaming experience for customers.

“We’re thrilled to be providing an exclusive iGaming experience to DraftKings customers. At DraftKings, a customer-first approach is essential to our products, and the addition of DraftKings Rocket is sure to provide a new and exciting way for customers to wager with peer-to-peer interaction.”

DraftKings Rocket comes hot on the heels of the company’s latest iGaming expansions, which included the addition of both Spanish 21 and DKCraps earlier this year.

It is currently available in New Jersey with Michigan and West Virginia to follow pending regulatory approval.

DraftKings' past acquisition of supplier SBTech has no doubt helped with the creation of its own games.
