With single-game sports betting now legally recognized in Canada, DraftKings Sportsbook is gearing up for its entry into the Great White North.

Boasting a sleek website and easy-to-use mobile app, there’s a reason DraftKings Sportsbook is one of the top dogs in the North American sports betting market. Equipped with an exceptional welcome offer, DraftKings Sportsbook will certainly be a welcomed addition to the growing Canadian sports betting scene.

As the country eagerly awaits its arrival, let’s look at what you need to know when Canadian sports bettors can finally use the DraftKings Sportsbook app within their borders.

DraftKings Canada Sportsbook Launch Date

With no official launch date for DraftKings Sportsbook Canada on the books yet, there’s a strong sentiment within sports betting circles that we could see the sportsbook enter Canada in early 2022.

DraftKings Canada Sportsbook Expected Launch Date: Q1 2022

The renowned sports betting operator already has a daily fantasy sports (DFS) presence in Canada. In February 2021, DraftKings and the NFL expanded their DFS agreement to include Canada just ahead of the Super Bowl. It’s expected that DraftKings will do something similar for Canada with its existing DFS and iGaming partnership with the NHL in the near future.

DraftKings Ontario

As the largest province in Canada that makes up nearly 40% of the country’s entire population, Ontario’s size makes it a perfect location for DraftKings to set their sights on early.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) stand as the final authority on commercial sportsbooks like DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, and Caesars Sportsbook entering the province. They’ll need to pay a tax on gross revenue, but it’s clear that they want to be at the forefront of major North American sportsbooks coming to Ontario. Prior to the passing of Bill C-218, Ontario already offered parlay wagering through its PROLINE+ platform that is run by the OLG.

The Ontario sports betting market is positioned to be at the forefront of welcoming major North American betting sites to their province when they become available for single-game sports betting.
