Sportsbetting firm DraftKings has signed an agreement with Turner Sports and will serve as the exclusive sportsbook and daily fantasy sports provider of the Turner Sports and Bleacher Report brands moving forward.
The deal will cover most major sports, save for NBA basketball, and will see information regarding wagers provided through both brands. This covers broadcast media, digital content, and mobile news channels, all of which Turner Sports has a hand in.
Commenting on the deal DraftKings CBO Ezra Kucarz said, “Regulated betting is quickly becoming a fixture of modern sports entertainment, and this collaboration with Turner Sports further scales the reach of our products and content to engage fans.”
DraftKings has been expanding rapidly in the United States after the legalization of sportsbetting. It has grown to include online casino gaming as well, and is joining new markets as states work to regulate iGaming.
