Design Works Gaming (DWG), a leading game studio, inked a deal with DraftKings. The software developer will supply the US online casino with its games and supporting technology in Connecticut.

This milestone marks DWG’s extension into a fourth US state. The company’s press release states that entering Connecticut is “a testament to the studio’s continued commitment to delivering exceptional gaming experiences to players nationwide.”

DWG CEO and founder Troy Zurawski said via a G3 Newswire press release:

“Expanding into each US market comes with its own set of complexities. Our team knows how to navigate the regulatory landscape, understands local preferences, and tailors our games to meet the specific needs of Connecticut players. By collaborating closely with DraftKings, we’re ready to bring the same elevated content and playing experience to Connecticut that we have to New Jersey, Michigan and Pennsylvania.”

Design Works Gaming enters its fourth US market

As one of the fastest-growing game studios in the industry, DWG has established a good reputation for creating appealing games.

By entering Connecticut online casinos, the company will build upon its US success and offer its unique gaming portfolio to a broader audience.

The firm already has a presence in three online casino jurisdictions:

  • New Jersey
  • Michigan
  • Pennsylvania

Apart from DraftKings, DWG also has partnerships in place with Rush Street Interactive (RSI), Caesars Entertainment and BetMGM.

To be more precise, DWG recently partnered with RSI’s BetRivers to enter the Pennsylvania market.

As for New Jersey, Design Works recently teamed up with BetRivers and signed a partnership with Caesars.

DWG went live in Michigan through its collaboration with Caesars in December.

Before that, Design Works joined forces with DraftKings and teamed up with Caesars in Michigan in November.

DraftKings as DWG’s “pilot’ partner in Connecticut

The release also describes DraftKings as DWG’s “trusted pilot partner” in Connecticut.

Thanks to this agreement, DraftKings players will be the first in the state to access the studio’s premium LuckyTap. It is now live via Light and Wonder’s OpenGaming platform, with additional titles coming out soon.
