Only 30 days after its start, DraftKings Sportsbook is about to register 1 million bets from the Garden State alone!
To commemorate the occasion, the NJ Online Sports betting operator will surprise several of its clients with $35,000 in special prizes. The user who hits the one-millionth bet will win $10,000.
The current number of bets placed at DraftKings Sportsbook is around 879,000. The prize places start with bet number 900,000. A bonus of $2000 awaits at that mini-milestone. After that, each 10,000 better will receive a sum of between $1,000 and $5,000. Number 1,000,000, as we said, will get the top prize of $10,000 and a really nice memory out of it.
You may think that 100,000 bets would take several weeks at least, but with the promotion on the table and the starting of the NFL season, wager numbers are expected to hit new heights.
DraftKings Sportsbook is keeping its crown in the NJ Casino sector
The level of progress the online booker shows is mildly said amazing. Appearing as online sports betting app in August 2018, DraftKings Sportsbook dominated the NJ market ever since.
Initially, a sole player, the betting platform withstood the competition that followed. The appearance of SugarHouse Sportsbook and playMGM was the first real test for DraftKings, but they managed to keep the mass of users as customers and cemented their place on the betters phones as their preferred betting application.
The unexpected hardship came when FanDuel, DraftKings biggest competitor, announced a merger with PaddyPower BetFair. FanDuel’s appearance at the Meadowlands Racetrack looked like a sure sign DraftKings wasn’t number one anymore.
But instead of despairing, DraftKings upped their game and polished their app with new features. They also released the “Dr. AftKings” commercial series and got the legendary NBA Hall-of-Fame player Charles Barkley as their signature face.
The scene of NJ online sports betting is being transformed
DraftKings introduced two new major features to their clients that are a total game changer.
- The first one is the betting carousel. It creates a randomized list of sporting events the user can bet on, based on the player’s app history and preferred types of bets. It is a great tool for more casual players as it gives them direct combinations to play with.
- The second feature is something that really adds more depth to online betting – the live ticket system. It provides the users with the opportunity to close a live match and cash out their potential winnings before the end of the event.
It may sound too good to be true, but it is. Of course, if you close your bet in advance you will receive a fraction of your potential winnings. If you are sure of the outcome, we would advise not to cash out beforehand. But if the game is tense and there is a big chance of a late comeback, the cash out option is a great way to ensure you get your winnings.
Such options are simply not possible when betting live. The calculations of the payout cannot be made so quickly and without error. The evolution of online betting is the thing that gives the flexibility and calculating power to allow such innovations and DraftKings sports took full advantage of it.
With such great features, it is only natural that DraftKings Sportsbook again has taken the lead in the race with FanDuel to be the number one app for New Jersey online betters.
With the great prizes they are giving right now you should definitely try out their platform and see for yourself.
