The DFS operator already offer daily fantasy contests on 11 professional sports in eight countries, including Australia, Canada, the UK and the US.

The DraftKings sportsbook offer in New Jersey, based out of Atlantic City, allows players in the state to place bets on major US and international sports.

James Stern, chief business officer for America and land-based at Evolution, said: “DraftKings is a young and dynamic company that has blazed a trail in recent years with its best-in-class technology and extensive knowledge of sports.

“DraftKings was first to market in New Jersey with online sports betting, just a couple of months after filing for its licence with the New Jersey regulators. We very much look forward to working on this project.”
