The sports betting platform will be available both online and on mobile, pending regulatory approval.

Sports betting was legalised in West Virginia this March, with the West Virginia Lottery Commission approving final state rules for sports betting in October.

Matt Kalish, Chief Revenue Officer and Co-founder of DraftKings, said: “We are thrilled to work with Penn National Gaming to bring our online sportsbook product to West Virginia.”

John Finamore, Sr. Vice President of Regional Operations for Penn National Gaming, said: “We are pleased to help welcome DraftKings to West Virginia. We believe the state will certainly benefit from DraftKings’ tremendous brand awareness and expertise in providing customers a quality online sports betting experience.”

Earlier this week, DraftKings also added blackjack to its sports betting offerings in New Jersey.
