If you’ve somehow exhausted the full menu of games available on DraftKings Casino in West Virginia, that’s quite a remarkable fact that might suggest you need a hobby. In that unlikely event, though, fresh content is on the way.

DraftKings has partnered with Hacksaw Gaming to make that studio’s titles available on its app in West Virginia. While the games are not new in the state, the partnership undoubtedly increases Hacksaw’s footprint there.

Hacksaw cuts further into West Virginia with DraftKings

Hacksaw could be said to be hacking away at expanding its business in West Virginia. After securing a license to offer its games to real-money online casinos in West Virginia in November 2022, Hacksaw made its first foray in August with BetRivers Casino.

A month later, Hacksaw has doubled its reach in West Virginia via a similar deal with DraftKings. Currently, the deal involves slot titles that Hacksaw produces. Within that category, the games are not exclusive to DraftKings at this time.

That suggests Hacksaw might not be done with its West Virginia expansion. Other licensees are still available for potential partnerships, including:

  • BetMGM Casino
  • Caesars Palace Casino
  • FanDuel Casino
  • Golden Nugget Casino
  • PointsBet Casino

To date, Hacksaw has not confirmed whether it is in negotiations with any of those licensees. For players on DraftKings Casino, there are some new titles to sample with more on the way.

New games available on DraftKings right now

According to a release from Hacksaw, three slots are now available on DraftKings’ app in West Virginia.

  • Hand of Anubis
  • Hop ‘N’ Pop
  • Outlaws Inc.

Hacksaw says more titles will “be integrated over the coming weeks” on DraftKings Casino. Those include:

  • Gladiator Legends
  • Stack’em
  • Wanted Dead or a Wild

The games boast features like bonus mini-games, progressive multipliers and free spin icons. Wanted Dead or Wild is the first Hacksaw title to feature the studio’s DuelReels expanding reels element.

DraftKings Casino players will soon be among those to sample that element and other Hacksaw offerings. With the new content, the chances of exhausting all of the games available on the app are sliced.
