The new DraftKings-exclusive title is live on the app only in the Garden State right now. DraftKings touts its features as providing unprecedented realism.
Details on the DK Craps launch
DK Craps is not only exclusive to DraftKings but also a DraftKings creation. While only available in NJ for now, DraftKings plans to expand access into Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
DraftKings feels it’s not just another of its near-500 titles on its casino platform. It has developed the game with special features to produce an experience authentic to playing at a physical craps table.
“As the most realistic craps game on the market, we are excited to offer a premier online experience within our top-rated casino product,” said Jason March, DraftKings’ Vice President of iGaming, in a press 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.”
What are the elements March believes provide such realism? It starts with diversifying in-app responses to your taps on your phone screen.
What makes DK Craps unique?
DK Craps isn’t the first in-house creation that DraftKings has debuted in New Jersey. That’s become a common practice. For example, DraftKings’ Spanish 21 Blackjack variant also premiered in NJ.
DraftKings’ efforts to deliver a realistic product begin with new ways to place multiple bets with a single tap. In that way, the game simulates requesting multiple bets from a live dealer in person.
Additionally, the game allows you to decide which direction you want to roll or swipe the die. So, if you’re left-handed, for example, the gameplay will feel more authentic.
You can also opt to keep your bets on the table after each win. A dedicated help feature provides information as the game progresses on things like odds and potential payouts for wagers.
Finally, if you’re a craps novice or it’s just been a while since you last played, you can activate in-game tutorials. Beyond that, though, the aesthetics and rules of the game are true to what craps veterans expect.
NJ online casino players who love craps or want to give it a try now have yet another option. If it’s as realistic as DraftKings promises, it will be a hit in the Garden State and beyond.
