Online craps will have a bigger presence in the United States soon.

On June 14, DraftKings announced they are expanding their online casino gaming suite with the addition of DK Craps. 

DK Craps will debut in New Jersey and is expected to be available in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Michigan following regulatory approval in those states. 

“As the most realistic craps game on the market, we are excited to offer a premier online experience within our top-rated Casino product,” Jason March, DraftKings Vice President of iGaming, said in the release. “Craps was a challenging game to develop given the seemingly endless paths players can take, so I could not be prouder of our internal teams taking on this game development to deliver an authentic experience.”

Details of the game, according to the release, include: Advanced betting features for seamless in-app gameplay, multiple bets, actions to roll or swipe the dice in the direction and options to keep bets on the table after the win. 

DK Craps is available on DraftKings Casino on iOS and Android.

The announcement is soon to fill a large void in the U.S. market; online craps cgames are very rare, with only four of 39 online casinos featuring the game in New Jersey: Virgin Casino, Tropicana Casino, Pala Casino and Scores Casino.

Online craps are only available in New Jersey—until the game releases in Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia.

Those who are new to craps will be available to participate in basic and advanced tutorials on the DK Craps interface and also can read our experts’ guide to craps here.

According to the DraftKings release, the addition of online craps expands on 494 DraftKings Casino games approved in the U.S.
