BOSTON, Nov. 18, 2022 -- DraftKings Inc. (Nasdaq: DKNG) announced today that, following a mandatory early access test period from November 21-22, 2022, it expects to launch its online sportsbook in Maryland, pending receipt of regulatory approvals, on November 23, 2022. The top-rated DraftKings Sportsbook app is expected to be fully live for eligible customers ahead of the NFL action on Thanksgiving Day. DraftKings will offer customers in Maryland a best-in-class sports betting experience, including the opportunity to place a variety of bets, such as same-game parlays, player props, special odds boost selections, and more.

“With an active sports season currently underway, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to launch our top-rated sportsbook app in Maryland,” said Matt Kalish, DraftKings Co-Founder and President, DraftKings North America. “Our product delivers fans an exciting sports betting experience, and we would like to thank the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, the Sports Wagering Application Review Commission, Governor Hogan and the General Assembly for bringing online sports wagering to Maryland.”

DraftKings will, subject to receipt of regulatory approvals, offer eligible customers in Maryland the opportunity to place legal and regulated bets across collegiate sporting events and professional sports leagues, including the NFL, NHL, NBA, and more. Further establishing a presence in the state, last year, the Baltimore Ravens named DraftKings an Official Sports Betting Sponsor of the team, which allows DraftKings to reach Ravens fans in new ways by offering exciting exclusive game day experiences, autographed merchandise, and opportunities to participate in VIP-focused events during the NFL season.

“As sports gaming continues to grow across the nation, it was important to me that if I entered this space I would partner with a company that placed an emphasis on responsible gaming. With that top of mind, I joined the team at DraftKings and I am thrilled that it will be leading the way here in Maryland,” said Cal Ripken, Jr., Special Advisor to the Board of Directors for DraftKings. “Now, sports fans in our state will have access to the DraftKings Sportsbook, a safe and regulated betting option and a respected corporate leader.”
