Players around the state can utilize the app starting tomorrow.

DraftKings will launch its online sportsbook in Vermont on January 11. The release will give players statewide a chance to get in on the action during Super Bowl LVIII.

Vermont is the 26th US state to embrace the DraftKings sportsbook. The Boston-based operator is also live in the Canadian province of Ontario.

With the addition of Vermont, DraftKings has extended its online presence to five out of six New England states.

DraftKings North America President Matt Kalish commented further on the continued expansion by saying, “As a Boston-based company, we are thrilled for the opportunity to further expand in the New England region and provide Vermont with access to safe and legal sports betting.

“This is an exciting time of year with the NFL Playoffs about to kick off, and Vermonters will now have the opportunity to engage with their favorite sports on our industry leading DraftKings Sportsbook app.”

Once live, players in Vermont will have access to same-game and cross-sport parlays, in-game betting and special odds boosts. Sports fans will be able to place wagers on both pro sports and other sporting events around the country.

Vermont players can download DraftKings’ sportsbook on both iOS and Android.

DraftKings said it remains committed to encouraging responsible gaming. The company is an active member of the American Gaming Association and is part of its “Have A Game Plan. Bet Responsibly” campaign.

The program educates players and provides resources on safe gambling practices. Customers can learn to establish budgets or responsible play and gain knowledge on which legal and regulated operators to engage.
