Provider of award-winning content to the online casino industry, Hacksaw Gaming, has signed a distribution agreement with DraftKings in the American state of West Virginia.
Under the terms of the deal, three popular Hacksaw Gaming slot titles in Hand of Anubis, Hop’N’Pop and Outlaws Inc have been added to DraftKing’s West Virginia-facing online casino lobby. Several additional Hacksaw Gaming games including flagship release Wanted Dead or a Wild, the charming Stack’em and the pulsating Gladiator Legends are set to be integrated over the coming weeks.
DraftKings becomes the second West Virginia-based operator to form an alliance with Hacksaw Gaming after the studio received full regulatory approval just last month, having also debuted in Lithuania recently to further enhance its international footprint.
“It’s been a hugely exciting couple of months on the United States front,” the Chief Executive Officer for Hacksaw Gaming, Marcus Cordes, said. “After receiving full regulatory approval last month, we’re thrilled to bolster our standing in West Virginia by adding another top-tier operator to our ranks.
“DraftKings is a name that needs no introduction in the world of iGaming and we’ve no doubt our top-shelf content will find scores of new casino fans through this partnership.”
