August 11, 2022 – Design Works Gaming is now live with high-profile operator DraftKings with their innovative slot games available to their New Jersey player base.
A selection of top-performing DWG titles, including Double Fancy 7s and Panda Queen, are now available to DraftKings’ players in the Garden State via Light and Wonder’s OpenGaming platform, with several more games, like Armadillo Artie Gone Wild, launching in the coming weeks.
The deal builds upon a wildly successful partnership between DWG and Golden Nugget Online Gaming, which was acquired by DraftKings last year. The operator went live with several DWG titles in New Jersey in December and saw players take to the games at record speed. Since then, the operator has been rolling out new top-performing DWG games monthly.
DWG CEO Troy Zurawski said: “DraftKings is a brand that embodies competition. The biggest name in U.S. sports betting with a loyal, hungry player base. 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.”
DWG’s portfolio of games has performed strongly in New Jersey since launching at the end of last year and have quickly become favorites among players of several major operators in the state.
