American daily fantasy and sports betting provider DraftKings has just unveiled a new office in Las Vegas. This move is in line with the betting provider’s ongoing plans to expand in the US market.
The Las Vegas office will have teams dedicated specifically to customer experience, casino, fraud, sportsbook traders, IT, and HR. It is estimated that around 300 employees will be based at the new site.
This latest development comes after DraftKings agreed to an acquisition deal by a special purpose acquisition company together with betting and gaming technology provider SBTech last month. As part of the agreement, the business agreed to be reincorporated in Nevada.
According to DraftKings, it has observed a 40% increase in its overall employee headcount since October 2018. The operator also announced a 20,000 ft expansion of its global headquarters in Boston.
