Players will also have access to FanDuel’s website and retail platforms.

OLG Executive Director Frank Suarez commented, “FanDuel’s industry-leading offering will ensure that the District maximizes tax revenue under its existing contracts this year while delivering a best-in-class experience for 18+ residents.”

OLG went on to add that it will continue to “maintain its strong commitment to responsible gaming oversight.”

FanDuel recently teamed up with the nationally known non-profit Operation Hope to empower Massachusetts players and encourage responsible gaming.

Operation Hope collaborated with FanDuel to offer free financial counseling to residents throughout the state through a program called Hope Inside.
