Design Works Gaming has swelled its Garden State output after entering into a partnership with “a brand that embodies competition” in DraftKings.

This sees DWG make a second New Jersey-facing partnership in quick succession, with the online sports betting and igaming operator to take a number of games live within the region.

This will see a selection of titles, which include Double Fancy 7s and Panda Queen, become available to DraftKings’ New Jersey-based players via Light and Wonder’s OpenGaming platform. 

Furthermore, it is added that a number of further online casino offerings, such as Armadillo Artie Gone Wild, will be launching in the coming weeks.

Recently, DWG, which has also enjoyed success in Eilers-Fantini’s monthly US igaming reports, kick started a multi-state BetMGM alliance in New York’s neighbouring state.

“DraftKings is a brand that embodies competition. The biggest name in US sports betting with a loyal, hungry player base,” noted Troy Zurawski, DWG Chief Executive Officer.

“They’re known for keeping most operations and game production in house. So when they tapped DWG as a standout studio to help them dominate the slot side of the business, we were more than ready.”

The deal builds upon a wildly successful partnership between DWG and Golden Nugget Online Gaming, which was acquired by DraftKings last year. 

This saw the operator go live with several titles in New Jersey in December 2021. Since then, the operator has been rolling out new DWG games on a monthly basis.
