American fantasy sports company DraftKings has announced that it has signed a deal with Kambi that will see the latter assist with launching the company's sportsbetting operations in America.

The agreement will be good for multiple years and will see Kambi supplying DraftKings with the software and platform to offer the service. Currently, DraftKings has an agreement in place with Resorts Atlantic City to offer sports wagers to customers.

Obviously Draft Kings looking forward to become one of the leading bookies in US as they were known for their fantasy sports products till now, tough ask but not impossible and maybe this deal looks to be the right step towards this aim.
