Described as a game of instinct, the company's latest release allows players to compete alongside one another in real-time by placing wagers before a virtual rocket launches into orbit. The players must bail from the rocket before it stops rising to cash out. It is currently available in New Jersey, with Michigan and West Virginia to follow.

DraftKings Inc. announced Wednesday the addition of its new game DraftKings Rocket to the DraftKings Casino product suite, which is currently available in New Jersey with Michigan and West Virginia to follow pending regulatory approval. 

Built entirely in-house, DraftKings Rocket is the latest addition to the more than 30 games that have been developed by internal team members, and part of over 60 game builds in total. It also follows the company’s latest iGaming expansions, which included the addition of both “Spanish 21” and “DKCraps” earlier this year. 

With a prize pool of $1 million, DraftKings Rocket is a game of instinct that delivers real-money potential payouts within a shared and interactive interface which, according to a company statement “is unlike any other game on DraftKings Casino to date”. 

DraftKings Rocket works as players compete alongside one another in real time by placing wagers before a virtual rocket launches into orbit. As the virtual rocket begins rising, the possible winnings from player wagers grows in parallel: the longer the rocket rises, the more players stand to win. To cash out, players must bail from the rocket before it stops rising. 

DraftKings Rocket features a variety of “hidden surprises” and payouts for customers, including random objects floating in space. 

In an official press release, Jason March, DraftKings Vice President, iGaming, spoke about this new launch and said: “By developing DraftKings Rocket, our team continues to innovate our Casino offerings as we set out to create an all new, one-of-a-kind iGaming experience for customers. We’re thrilled to be providing an exclusive iGaming experience to DraftKings customers. At DraftKings, a customer-first approach is essential to our products, and the addition of DraftKings Rocket is sure to provide a new and exciting way for customers to wager with peer-to-peer interaction.”
